The Rug Company, a leading global brand of hand crafted designer rugs, announced the promotion of Amanda Price as the new U.S. Managing Director. In her new position, Price will be responsible for all U.S. operations, from sales and marketing to business development.

“For over eight years I’ve had the unique opportunity of being part of a company where a strong sense of family has been built into the foundation of the business” says Price. “It’s an exciting time for the Rug Company, with its continued success and expansion and I am eager to take on my new role and fully apply my experience to further the company’s large scale initiatives and its mission to broaden the brand in the U.S. market.”

Since joining The Rug Company in 2003 as PR & Marketing Director in London, Price has overseen the expansion of the company’s Los Angeles, Miami and Chicago showrooms. Through her personal relationships with editors and her positive reputation in the design community, she has aided in the expansion of the U.S. business from one store in SoHo, New York to five National flagships, with an uptown Manhattan showroom opening later this year.

“As our market share grows and our product and project initiatives continue to broaden, we feel it is increasingly important to manage our external relationships. Amanda’s enduring dedications to building the Rug Company brand and extending its impact exemplify our company’s ongoing commitment to the U.S. Market,” said Christopher Sharp, co-founder of The Rug Company.
