Camira Fabrics Hires Daniel Vonderbrink for New Sales Post
Textile innovator Camira has appointed Daniel Vonderbrink to a newly created role as Regional Director of Sales in the company’s fast-growing North American commercial marketplace. New York City-based Vonderbrink will cover major markets along the Atlantic seaboard and in Chicago, working closely with Camira’s independent sales reps and reporting to the UK-based company’s leader for North American sales, Simon Whittaker.
With an interior design background, Vonderbrink has industry experience with Gensler, Milliken, HBF, and Knoll-owned Holly Hunt.
Camira designs and manufactures upholstery fabrics for commercial offices, hospitality, government, institutional interiors, healthcare, cinema and auditoria.
Camira is an independent UK textile company with two manufacturing facilities in England (in Huddersfield and Nottingham) and a mainland European manufacturing plant in Lithuania. The company’s North America operation is in Grand Rapids, MI, where it holds stocked inventory and operates a cut yardage program for rapid distribution throughout North America.

The company has been recognized for outstanding product innovation and environmental stewardship, gaining Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in Innovation (2005) and Sustainable Development (2010 and 2015).
Camira is registered to ISO 9001 (quality standard), ISO 14001 (environmental management) and OSHAS 18001 (health & safety) and OSHAS 18001 (health & safety).
