NEW YORK — Ian Schwartz has been promoted to national sales manager of Kravet Contract, leading the commercial sales team, overseeing key accounts, and working with Kravet’s executive team on sales strategy.

Schwartz served the last 11 years as an outside sales representative in New Jersey for the residential division.

“The Kravet Contract team has been doing a tremendous amount of listening to our customers and partners, to learn what new challenges they are facing, and will continue to face during this pandemic and the foreseeable future,” Schwartz says. “Kravet Contract has been focusing on creating product and sample tools that will provide solutions our customers will need in this new market environment.

“Being that our parent company Kravet Inc. is the industry leader, and offers a one resource solution to all our designers needs, it has given Kravet Contract the ability and flexibility to pivot our business ….”

His career spans 18 years at Kravet, where he began as an intern in the warehouse, sample department, customer service, and showrooms.

After graduating from Philadelphia University with a degree in textile management, Schwartz joined Kravet with responsibilities in the Kravet Studio and Export Department. He also created and managed Kravet’s government division.

Ian played golf for four years during college and was captain of the team for two years. He was also Kravet’s Creative Seller of the Year award winner in 2018.

Ian will continue to reside in New Jersey with his wife, Lauren, and their three kids, and works out of Kravet’s New York City Studio. Schwartz will report to Dallas Chapman, senior vice president of Kravet Contract.

“Ian has exhibited the ability to increase sales and efficiencies in his various responsibilities at Kravet,” Chapman says.

Kravet Inc., established in 1918, is an industry leader in to-the-trade furnishings. This fifth-generation-family business distributes fabrics, furniture, wall coverings, trimmings, carpets, and accessories.
