Phillips Collection is partnering with California’s Bassman Blaine rep firm, which will expand the company’s sales force with 14 new reps on the West Coast.
The Bassman Blaine sales agency is well known within the home furnishings industry for its “outstanding customer care, service and professionalism,” according to a press release. The group has showrooms at the LA Mart and Laguna Design Center, which Phillips Collection will join this year.
The 14 new reps will join the team of more than 50 Phillips Collection salespeople who service clients across the nation and internationally.
“The big decisions in life are obvious. When a firm of this caliber evinces interest you seize the opportunity,” said Mark Phillips, CEO of Phillips Collection. “I have known and admired the principals for more years than I’d ever care to admit. When Ken and Bill visited our incredible warehouse headquarters in High Point last market, you could see the wheels spinning. That (and a ride in a Tesla) was all that we needed to sign the deal.”
“We couldn’t be more ecstatic about partnering with such a prestigious group of salespeople,” said Jason Phillips, vice president of sales and marketing. “We have so much untapped potential on the West Coast and with Bassman Blaine we will soar to new heights.”
