Samantha Barth Joins Galleher from Mannington Mills
Galleher, LLC, the largest flooring distributor on the west coast and third largest in the U.S., is adding significant strength to its sales team through the addition of Samantha (Sam) Barth as its new Director of Sales Development and Training.
Sam Barth joins Galleher after a 14-year career at Mannington Mills where she held a number of key sales management positions including West Coast Regional Sales Director, Director of Key Accounts, and most recently, National Director of Training and Development.
Barth’s appointment reflects Galleher’s continued commitment to meeting the expanded needs of their customers through its unique strategic and consultative selling model. “Sam Barth joining our team could not have come at a better time,” comments Ted Kozikowski, President & CEO. “Her depth of experience and ability to provide strategic sales training and development is second to none. Her leadership will further enhance our consultative sales model to allow us to more effectively meet the needs of our customers to help them keep the promises they make to their customers.”
At Galleher, Barth will oversee the sales team in the greater Los Angeles area as well as provide strategic sales development for several key Galleher accounts. In addition, she will spearhead Galleher’s internal sales training and salesperson development efforts. She will report to Clay Covington, Vice President, Sales at Galleher.
“I’ve known Sam for many years since we both worked together at Mannington Mills,” said Clay Covington. “I’ve watched her career develop as she’s taken on greater responsibilities and honed her sales and business skills over the years. We are lucky to add such an accomplished sales and business leader to our team.”
Galleher has grown significantly over the past few years. 2021 sales reached $335 million, representing more than a 50% growth rate over 2020 through organic sales increases and strategic acquisitions that expanded Galleher’s footprint to 7 western states.
“I couldn’t be more excited to join such a fast growing and dynamic team at Galleher,” said Barth. “I’m looking forward to working closely with Galleher’s customers as we continue to grow and expand their business opportunities.”
