Camira Group Inc., an international fabric manufacturer has announced three new hires within the contract and hospitality segment.

Camira Group has appointed Emily Timm as director of sales, Paul Tucker as sales manager and Gabriela Cobb as business development manager. Timm’s experience spans more than 20 years in the interior design industry. She has previously managed her own independent design firm, taught textiles and design communications at Western Michigan University and has held several business development roles with furniture and surface material brands.

Tucker returns to Camira to assume responsibility for OEM sales, having previously worked within the company’s customer service department in Grand Rapids, Mich., before taking on business development roles first for Fully, now part of Miller Knoll and most recently Empire Office. Cobb, meanwhile, takes on a new position responsible for business development in the hospitality sector, based in San Diego, Calif., after a 20-year career in office and contract interiors.

“These are exciting new hires who will each play an integral role in delivering our ambitious growth plans within the North American marketplace, whilst working in close collaboration with our global teams,” says Chris Silguero, president of Camira Group Inc. “We have a strong new product pipeline in our 50th anniversary year, which Emily, Paul and Gabriela will bring to market in the U.S. and Canada. Their appointments form part of our longer-term global business development strategy, which is targeting a doubling of the group business in North America over the next five years.”

Camira Group, whose North America headquarters and distribution is in Grand Rapids, Mich., produces around 10 million yards of contract fabrics a year, sold in up to 75 countries worldwide. The business’s main markets include workplaces, higher education, hospitality and public transport.
