James Kaplan recently became the president of Carnegie, while Cliff Goldman, its previous president, was named executive chairman.

Kaplan had been the CEO of Tai Ping Carpets. For 14 years, Kaplan demonstrated success at the company, where he led the expansion of Tai Ping from one brand to five brands, with over 24 worldwide locations, and quadrupling revenues, according to a Carnegie statement.

Requests for an interview with Kaplan went unanswered.

Founded in 1950 by Robert Goldman, Carnegie was the first in creating the textile wallcoverings category in the 1970s, its own Xorel product, which provides a high-performance alternative to PVC-based textiles, and Biobased Xorel, the first plant-based high-performance textile in the world, according to a Carnegie statement.
