Patrick Bahil has joined Office Star Products as national e-commerce sales manager.
He was previously president and COO of Home Styles Furniture. In 2008, Bahil helped reposition that business from one concentrated on national, catalogue and big-box retailers to one focused on drop shipping for Internet-based retail operations.
Josh Blumenthal, Office Star vp/sales, said, “We’re anticipating Pat’s experience can help launch us to the next level both in gaining market share and operationally by refining our fulfillment process and utilizing California, New Jersey and Georgia warehouses. Once these components are in sync, Office Star will be an even greater resource to the online community, but to get there and build upon the existing foundation, it’s the guidance from a veteran like Pat that will really dictate the success of the program.”
Bahil joins Office Star in time for the Winter Las Vegas Market, January 22 to 26. Also in the lead up to the market, Office Star is debuting a new brand, Curia & Co., which features median price furniture for the specialty and furniture store sector.
