HUNTINGBURG — OFS Brands has promoted Ryan Menke to senior vice president of sales and marketing. He will be responsible for managing all sales and marketing functions for the company. He previously served as senior vice president of supply chain.
“For the past decade, Ryan has demonstrated leadership and results in just about every aspect of the OFS Brands organization. From sales to engineering to operations and everything in between, Ryan has played a critical role in the success of this company, and our sales and marketing teams will flourish under his guidance,” said Jim Huebner, chief financial officer and senior vice president.
Menke began his career with OFS Brands in 2002 as the vice president of transportation where he oversaw OFS Brands’ specialized furniture transportation company, Styline Logistics. Under his leadership, Styline grew from one terminal in Indiana to one of the largest specialized furniture carriers in the nation, according to a company news release.
From 2004 to 2006 Menke assumed responsibilities for the company’s raw materials manufacturing operations, as well as supply chain operations. In 2006 he moved to North Carolina to manage the acquisition and integration of Carolina Business Furniture. In 2008, he helped OFS Brands integrate Loewenstein into the family of companies. Since then, he has served as the senior vice president of supply chain and also was responsible for Styline Logistics and OFS Brands’ seating division.
“As Ryan guided OFS Brands through new brand acquisitions, he also saw an opportunity to reshape the operational culture of OFS Brands by hooking up best practices across the company and all of its locations. His talent for creating logistics, manufacturing and sales synergies has delivered tremendous customer value to our larger corporate accounts,” said James Reese, national sales manager.
Company officials also relied on Menke’s engineering expertise in product development.
Prior to working with OFS Brands, Menke worked in new business development for a furniture dealer in St Louis. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Evansville.
