Cypress Appoints Mark and Karen Reed as General Managers of Operations for EMEA
Duo will represent Cypress and Peter Reed Linens in Europe, Middle East and Africa

Sheffield, Mass. — May, 2009 — Cypress, the leading designer and manufacturer of luxurious bathrobes, towels, slippers, and sheets for the hospitality and spa industry for over a quarter of a century, today announced the appointments of Mark and Karen Reed as General Managers of Operations for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Having been purveyors of luxury linens to many of the finest hotels and resorts in the world for over 25 years, the Reeds bring a wealth of experience and expertise to their new role at Cypress. Headquartered in South Africa and the United Kingdom, the Reeds will be responsible for representing all Cypress products to the hospitality market in the EMEA region.

“The Reed name is well known around the world in the luxury linen market, and Mark and Karen’s unmatched knowledge of quality fabrications make them the perfect team to guide the international expansion of Cypress’ growing product line,” stated Gene Faul, CEO and co-founder of Cypress Hotel & Spa. “Their professionalism is second to none.”

The Reed family has over five generations of textile and weaving entrepreneurship, making fine bed linens for British royalty and other discerning clients since their inception in Lancashire England in 1852. Reed Family Linens recently partnered with Cypress to better meet the needs of their mutual hotel industry clientele.

“There is a clear synergy for selling and marketing Cypress bathrobes and towels to our existing client base, where the product quality and branding is a perfect fit,” stated Mark Reed. “Hoteliers value both the Cypress and Reed brands for their longstanding reputations in the marketplace, and for the comfort and reassurance which they offer to their guests.”

In their new positions with Cypress, Mark and Karen’s responsibilities include covering the EMEA sales territories, as well as recruiting, building, training, and leading the existing Cypress international sales force. Their successful abilities to build strong customer relationships, analyze markets, and develop and implement business plans were prerequisites to Faul’s decision.

“The Reed’s appointment represents an opportunity to address, focus and execute Cypress’ aggressive international growth initiatives,” stated Faul. “The legitimacy and credibility the Reeds bring to our organization cannot be understated.”
