Comfort footwear supplier RG Barry Corporation has reorganised its sales set-up in a bid to move the business into new channels of distribution.

The company hopes the changes will also help serve existing customers better, with the new initiatives the focus of a team under senior vice president sales and business development Thomas JZ Konecki.

Pam Gentile, previously senior vice president sales - national accounts, takes on the role of senior vice president - sales, and will lead the team handling sales in all of the company's existing channels of distribution.

RG Barry also named James L Faulkner as vice president and channel manager for the planned 2007 relaunch of the company's Terrasoles casual comfort footwear, which will be on sale in high-end department stores, on the internet and through catalogue retailers and speciality outlets.
