Industry Veteran Duncan Mathews Joins Growing Robinson Team
NEW ORLEANS, LA – Robinson Lumber Company today announced that industry veteran Duncan Mathews will join the company as a Sales Executive, focusing on selling flooring and decking in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Mathews will be based in Winchester, Virginia, at the company’s new location there. He will also take over key customer accounts in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
“Having run my own independent trading business for the past 18 years, joining forces with a larger company was a significant decision to make. After much consideration, I felt that Robinson was the only company in our industry that shared my passion for hardwoods, valued my independence to take smart risks, and also asked me to have the courage to speak my mind.”
Mathews comes to Robinson with decades of experience in the hardwood industry, both from his own family business in Australia, as well here in the United States, where he has lived since 1994 honing his skills in imported finished products as well as export hardwood lumber.
“We are excited to announce this key addition to our sales team, with experience in many products we bring to market,” said Andy Nuffer, Vice President of Sales. “As we continue to grow, Duncan’s skillset will be a vital component to our seasoned team.”
Robinson is very excited to welcome Duncan to the team, not only for the great relationships he has fostered in the flooring and decking industry within the United States, but particularly in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, where with its new facility in Winchester, Robinson looks forward to significant growth.
Mallory Robinson, the newest member of 5th generation of Robinsons to join the company, commented “being new to this industry, I am continuously amazed by the strong, talented and diverse mix of people at our company, from knowledgeable industry veterans to newcomers.”
