C.R. Laurence Appoints Jeff Phillips as Sales and Marketing Director, Interior Office Systems

Phillips brings more than 28 years of industry experience to foster long-term growth for CRL's Interior Office Systems product line.

LOS ANGELES, CA - April 22, 2014 - C.R. Laurence is proud to announce that Jeff Phillips has joined the CRL family of brands as Sales and Marketing Director, Interior Office Systems. Phillips brings a wealth of knowledge to C.R. Laurence with an extensive skill set that spans sales, business development, strategic planning, leadership, and customer service. In this new position, Phillips will focus on expanding and strengthening CRL's influence in the interior office products market.

Phillips comes to C.R Laurence from DORMA Interior where he oversaw all sales and marketing initiatives, and daily operations as their National Sales Manager. Prior, he served as Director of the Steelcase Design Partnership, where he was responsible for strategic planning, sales, marketing, and business development for the Vecta, Brayton, and Metro office contract furniture brands.

With the recent launch of the new CRL 487 Series Office Partitions product line and OP15 Office Partitions Catalog, Phillips joins C.R. Laurence at a time of rapid growth. His complex understanding of the manufacturer-distributor relationship and key market dynamics will help him lead the sales and marketing efforts for this growing product line, and create a synergy that will allow CRL to have an immediate impact in this large market segment.

"Our complete product offerings, resources, expertise, and reputation with the glazing industry, paired with Jeff's experience and strong relationships with architects and furniture dealers, will create exciting new possibilities for both CRL and the glazing industry. Traditionally, glaziers have played a peripheral role in Section 10 specifications; we aim to make our Interior Office Systems a mainstream product line to create more opportunities for glazing contractors, similar to Section 8 today," says Lloyd Talbert, President of C.R. Laurence. "We are very confident in Jeff's abilities to lead our team and elevate the product line in this new position. His advanced knowledge of all facets of the office design and development industry will add new value to CRL."

Phillips holds a Bachelor's of Science degree in Public Affairs Management and Business from Michigan State University. He will be based out of C.R. Laurence's Los Angeles Corporate Headquarters.
