Faytex, the textile concern based in Weymouth, MA, appointed William “Bill” Pickett to the newly created position of international sales manager to help mine new and renewed interest in Dri-Lex and Eco Dri-Lex, in particular, outside the U.S.

Vice President and General Manager Cindy Fay Stangl cited Pickett’s 10-plus years of experience with Faytex as well as an understanding of how to work with people in many different cultures as two reasons that made him uniquely qualified to take on this new role.

“Bill will continue to service his existing domestic customers, especially those on the West Coast, while he builds our international business,” Stangl said. “He will be headquartered at our offices here, but will be traveling extensively internationally to acquire new business, and traveling domestically to his customers to ensure that we dont miss a beat delivering the outstanding customer service for which Faytex and Bill are well known. It’s a challenging assignment but were certain that Bill is the right person for the job.”

Pickett will start immediately.

Faytex Corp. has affiliates in Spain and Italy as well as R & D and manufacturing facilities in China operated jointly with partner Tai Lee Textiles, Ltd. In 1988, Faytex developed the synthetic moisture management system called Dri-Lex.
