Alan Goth to Lead ELEMENTS Furniture Sales Team
ELEMENTS, a full-service dealer of progressive furniture and architectural products, has tapped Alan Goth to lead the account executive team at the company’s Denver headquarters.
In his new role as furniture sales manager, Goth will lend his nearly 20 years of sales experience to growing ELEMENTS’ portfolio of commercial furniture clients in healthcare, government, education, and professional services.
“Alan brings a unique combination of expertise in sales and leadership as well as a fresh perspective on the industry that we believe will allow him to take our furniture sales team to the next level,” said Rob Hill, owner at ELEMENTS. “We’re always looking for ways to improve our client service experience, and with Alan’s success managing highly complex projects, we expect he’ll be able to quickly contribute to this process. We’re pleased to welcome him to our senior leadership team.”
Goth previously owned and managed an executive recruiting firm, Certitude Talent Solutions, which specialized in the medical technology industry. Prior to that, he worked in various medical sales and business development roles in the medical industry. He received his bachelor’s degree in business administration from The University of Tulsa.
“I was drawn to ELEMENTS particularly because of their reputation as an innovator in the commercial furnishings industry,” said Goth. “Instead of offering one or two categories of products, they bring together everything businesses need to reveal the full potential of any work environment – all in one place. It’s a powerful model that I look forward to sharing with a broader audience as we continue to grow our industry.”
Goth’s hire comes on the heels of a strong 2018 for ELEMENTS. The company celebrated its 10th anniversary and rose in the rankings as one of the largest woman-owned businesses in Colorado.
