Thrace-LINQ, a global supplier of woven and nonwoven polypropylene-based fabrics for a wide variety of textile applications, has hired Dennis St. Louis as director, Sales and Marketing. St. Louis, a senior level manager with more than 23 years of experience in the textiles industry, most recently served as director, Sales and Marketing and national account manager for Vita Nonwovens. Prior to his role at Vita Nonwovens, he was vice president, Sales and Marketing, for Burlington House. St. Louis will be responsible for maximum market penetration of Thrace-LINQ products and capabilities throughout the Americas. He graduated from Milton College and attended the University of Wisconsin’s executive school of business.
“In the past, Thrace-LINQ focused most of its efforts in the geotextile arena, however, last year we also expanded our portfolio of performance nonwovens that provide sustainable cost effective solutions for industrial and technical applications,” says acting president Ron Rooks. “As we continue to grow the company’s needle-punch operations and brand awareness across the Americas, we anticipate Dennis will provide the sales and marketing leadership needed to accomplish the growth goals and objectives of both Thrace-LINQ and those of our customers.”
