GRAFF, a global leader in decorative plumbing for the kitchen and bath, is proud to announce the additions of Eric Dietz and Johnn W. McDermott to its sales team. With more than 40 years of combined experience, Dietz and McDermott will serve in the roles of national sales director and East Coast regional sales manager, respectively.
“As GRAFF continues to grow, we’re always looking for talented individuals to join our team,” said Ziggy Kulig, president of GRAFF. “Eric and Johnn both more than fit that bill and we’re excited for them to bring their experience and industry knowledge to our sales team. We have no doubt they will both succeed at GRAFF.”
Prior to joining GRAFF, Dietz spent nearly nine years with Native Trails, makers of artisan-crafted sinks for the kitchen and bath, where he served as the vice president of sales. Before his time with Native Trails, he received his introduction to the faucet and fixtures industry during a four-year stint as the national sales manager for Santec Faucet.
“This organization has been on my radar for several years because of their dedication to excellent designs, support of the design community, and overall commitment to excellence,” said Dietz. “I look forward to taking an already established, well-respected company to new heights with our combined efforts.”
In his role, Dietz will oversee regional support for southern California, northern Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, and western Canada.
McDermott is equally well-versed in the world of decorative plumbing having earned his stripes as the general manager of Nikles USA, maker of luxury shower fittings, and national sales manager of Cifial USA, a plumbing and hardware manufacturer. He also had the opportunity to experience the larger picture behind home remodeling and construction, handling business development for Chicago-based home builder Dolby Development.
In his role as East Coast regional sales manager, McDermott will oversee central and eastern Canada, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, New York, eastern Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, and the Caribbean.
Dietz and McDermott will hit the ground running for GRAFF and are already working directly with their respective sales teams.
