Bodek and Rhodes, Philadelphia, recently introduced Sam Gerber as the new vice president of business development. Gerber, a well-known apparel industry veteran, joins the family-run business in this newly created position to help lead and expand the company’s customer service and sales.
“Sam is an industry pro and I’m very glad to have him join our family,” said Mike Rhodes, president. “He’s got such a diverse background and in-depth industry knowledge, it really gives him a keen eye for all the aspects of our business and I have no doubt he is going to be a huge asset to Bodek and Rhodes.”
