Valdese Weavers Contract Promotes Scott George
Textile industry veteran Scott George has spent 35 years growing sales and creating innovative products for some of the most recognizable names in the trade. Since 2013, he’s held the position of vice president of marketing and sales for Valdese Weavers Contract, the commercial fabric division of Valdese Weavers. And this March, he was promoted to senior vice president of marketing and sales for the division.
“Scott is a proven performer,” said Valdese Weavers Chief Marketing Officer Blake Millinor. “He has a track record of not only increasing sales and developing great relationships, but also the ability to create internal efficiencies and attract talent.”
George deftly assumed the senior management role in the contract division when he arrived at Valdese in 2013. “Given our previous working relationship, Scott was a natural choice to segue into this role in Contract,” says Millinor. “As expected, this business has continued its growth expectations under his leadership.”
Prior to his work at Valdese Weavers, George held executive positions at Mastercraft, Tietex and International Textile Group. During his tenure at Mastercraft, he led the sales, design and product development teams to seven-fold revenue growth in six years.
