Justin Brands announced June 7 the promotion of Charles (Chuck) Schmalbach to vice president of Sales Administration.
A nine-year veteran of the company, Schmalbach is responsible for planning and directing sales activities for all the company's brands as well as customer service, e-commerce and EDI compliance.
"Chuck has been involved in the Western retail and wholesale industry for more than 37 years," said Randy Watson, CEO of Justin Brands. "We would be hard-pressed to find anyone who can match Chuck's wide-ranging industry experience and personal dedication to Justin for this officer position."
Recently, Schmalbach received the 2010 John Justin "Standard of the West" award, an annual recognition for dedication and service that exemplifies and upholds the Justin tradition of excellence.
Schmalbach began his career at Justin in 2001 as a manager in the Sales Administration department. Prior to joining Justin he was a principal partner and served as vice president of Drysdales Inc., a Western wear retailer based in Tulsa, Okla. Earlier in his career he worked as a store manager at Sheplers, another Western retail establishment.
Schmalbach is a 1971 graduate of Oklahoma City University and a member of the Western English Retailers Association.
