Tampa, Florida-based ColDesi, a supplier of apparel decorating equipment for the embroidery and direct-to-garment markets, announces two new appointments to its staff. The company names Jerid Hill as product manager for the company’s DTG product line and Julie Chapdelaine as sales and supplies consultant.
Hill comes to the role with more than a decade of experience in the decorated apparel industry, including a background in sales and day-to-day direct-to-garment production. As the product manager, Hill interfaces with manufacturers, coordinates product releases, gathers client feedback, and evaluates results. Hill joins the team from BelQuette who recently joined forces with ColDesi. The two entities unveiled plans to combine companies in March 2018.
Chapdelaine comes to her role with more than 25 years of experience in customer service, payroll, and team training.
“We are very excited to have Julie on board with us,” says Joe Smalley, sales manager with ColDesi. “She comes highly recommended by one of our top employees, and we find her work experience to be a great match for our team.”
