UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J.—Hunter Douglas has named Ron Kass executive vice president of marketing, and has appointed Jim Mathews senior vice president of marketing.
Both positions are new to the window-treatments manufacturer. In these new posts, Kass and Mathews are jointly responsible for the company’s consumer brand marketing and dealer-support programs. Kass reports to Marv Hopkins, president and chief executive officer, and Mathews reports to Kass.
Kass retains his responsibilities as president of both the design-products and independent-fabricator groups. He joined Hunter Douglas in the former position in 2005, and was assigned the latter post in 2008.
Mathews, who joined Hunter Douglas in 1989 as director of marketing for the window-covering division, became vice president of marketing in 1990. He served in that post until taking on his new role.
