Luxury lighting company Hubbardton Forge has announced some changes in its sales  organization. 
Effective November 23rd, Andrew Knapp has been appointed to the position of Vice President of Sales, replacing  Chris Recchia. The company has eliminated the role of National Residential Showroom Sales  Manager, formerly held by Bruce Hathaway, due to the increased scope of the new VP of Sales.

Having  previously worked for a retail lighting showroom and with designers working on both residential and  commercial projects with Ricci Sales, Knapp has had the opportunity to work in every part of the  lighting industry, including collaborations that have led to customized products for client projects. 
“I’m looking forward to focusing on the advantages that Hubbardton Forge Knapp says. “We have custom capabilities right here and products that meet every lighting application need.” 
As VP of Sales, Knapp will report directly to Maria Mullen, President & COO. “I am thrilled to  welcome Andrew to his new role at Hubbardton Forge. His past experience, especially selling our products at retail and wholesale, will bring a different perspective to our sales operation. Understanding our customers’ challenges, as Andrew does, will make us a stronger partner and a  more important resource. With Andrew overseeing our sales team we are excited about the future.” 
Andrew will oversee Commercial, Trade and Residential Showroom sales. He will have a particular  focus on Showroom sales, with all residential sales representatives reporting directly to him.
