John Weinstein Named Franz Viegener's Corporate Director N.A.
Franz Viegener Premium Collection has appointed John Weinstein Corporate Director, North America. Following a successful career owning retail stores in Philadelphia, acting as director for several plumbing showrooms then running his own manufacturer's representative agency, John became President of Xync Brands' Ryvyr, a manufacturer of bath furniture and fixtures. Xync Brands was acquired by Elk Group International in 2016 and hired Weinstein as both President of Ryvyr as well as Northeast Divisional VP for Dimond Home and Lighting, Sterling, GuildMaster and Pomeroy. While maintaining the basic marketing principles of Franz Viegener; partnering with extremely high quality dealers and a restricted e-com tactic, Weinstein will be developing new business protocols and strategies to grow organically. The national sales team will be increased to further support the dealer base and other initiatives including bringing the Franz Viegener name to the design community.
