Towel Specialties Promotes Shawn Kanak to President
Towel Specialties, Baltimore, announced the promotion of Shawn Kanak to president.
As both president of Towel Specialties and an integral member of the executive team, Kanak will oversee national sales efforts for all three divisions—Towel Specialties, Cobblestone Mills Blanket Company and Xpress Towels.
“I am humbled, honored and excited to have this opportunity,” Kanak said. “My goal is to ensure that our clients leave every single interaction with a quality impression that lasts—period. This includes a deep analysis of areas where we can develop, implement or improve ways to deliver even more outstanding customer value. Our recent reassignment of resources toward technology enhancements internally with our websites, and through PromoStandards, will allow us to achieve these goals. Now we can reach further.”
As Towel Specialties’ vice president of sales since 2001, Kanak successfully led the company and navigated year-over-year growth. Under his leadership, between aggressive product development and the creation of new divisions, the company finds itself in a highly respected position in the market.
“Shawn has nearly 30 years of industry experience, and ownership has the confidence that we will continue to grow our organization with him at the helm,” said Towel Specialties owner and chief financial officer Eric Weinstein. “Our philosophy is simple: We are committed to going the extra mile to deliver a quality impression that lasts. Shawn has instilled that within our entire organization from his first days with us in 2001. We are certain Shawn will continue to bring the same passion and energy to this new role as he has to his prior role, and we are confident that he will be instrumental in building for our future.”
“I will continue to be able to shine as much as the terrific players on our team,” Kanak added. “I am grateful for the opportunity given to me by Eric Weinstein, and I recognize that our capabilities are virtually limitless.”
