Loloi Rugs announced the addition of Valerie Jacobs as its new Vice President of Group Sales.. “I’ve always been extremely passionate about rugs,” she said. “It was my favorite category as a buyer and I can’t wait to get back into this industry.” Starting in her new role at the end of the month, Jacobs will be responsible for providing leadership, training and coordination of rep group sales as well as managing key accounts. She will remain based in Minnesota.
Prior to joining the Loloi team, Jacobs was vice president of sales/marketing for SIScovers where she created a sales force dedicated to selling the new top-of-bed and accent pillow categories. Before SIScovers, Valerie worked at HOM Furniture for 14 years.
