Shane Richmond has been promoted to regional manager for the Carolinas for Fishman Flooring Solutions.

Shane Richmond is Fishman Flooring Solutions' new regional manager for the Carolinas.

In his new role, he is responsible for day-to-day oversight of six territory business managers, seven branch locations and Fishman’s Carolinas staff.

Richmond was previously district manager for South Carolina, overseeing the firm’s Charleston, Columbia and Greenville locations. Richmond replaces Bill Mabeus, who will focus full time on his role as vice president of sales, with responsibility for the firm’s sales force, selecting new vendors and products and product integration.

“Developing leaders for our business is one of the most important things we do at Fishman, because as our business continues to grow, we need talented and experienced people at the helm who understand our culture and the emphasis we place on delighting the customer," said Bob Wagner, Fishman's president and CEO. "Shane Richmond has been very successful in every sales and management role he has had to date at Fishman and we have every confidence that his success will continue in his new position and in any future roles he may have with our company.”

Richmond, a 24-year veteran of the flooring industry, joined Fishman in 1997 as assistant manager of the firm’s Raleigh, N.C., location. One year later, he began his sales career as the outside sales representative for eastern North Carolina. In 1999, he was given responsibility for developing sales in the Charleston region in conjunction with Fishman opening its branch there. Based on his success in that role, he was named territory business manager for the Charlotte branch in 2000, a position he held for 13 years, when he became district manager for South Carolina.
