CLEVELAND, Tenn. – Industry veteran Brandunn Rush has joined motion furniture manufacturer Jackson/Catnapper as senior vice president of sales.

Rush came to Jackson/Catnapper from Klaussner Home Furnishings, where he spent 22 years in many areas of the business, most recently as executive vice president.

At Jackson/Catnapper, Rush will serve as the company’s lead sales executive, overseeing Jackson/Catnapper’s sales managers, the sales force as well as specific key-account responsibility.

“Brandunn has developed some very key retail relationships over the course of his career and has a stellar reputation in the industry,” said Keith Jackson, president, in a release. “He has a great understanding of our existing customer base, as well as a vast amount of knowledge and experience in alternate channels of distribution. The Jackson/Catnapper culture is one of ‘continuous improvement,’ and Brandunn will bring new ideas, partnerships and opportunities to our company in the years to come.”

Rush described Jackson/Catnapper as “steeped with rich tradition and heritage.”

“Jackson/Catnapper’s family atmosphere, vision and growth plans are unparalleled,” he continued. “After some time off I am excited to jump back in the industry that I love. I am ready to see and work with old friends, as well as build new relationships.”

Jackson/Catnapper was founded in 1933, and is based in Cleveland, Tenn. The company operates eight factories in four states.
