PASADENA, Texas — Teadit North America announced the promotion of Robbie Riggs to the position of vice president of sales and marketing. Working closely with the regional sales managers and technical support team, Riggs will have responsibility for all market strategies and sales performance.

After gaining industry experience working in gasket distribution for 16 years, Riggs joined the Teadit team in 2018 and has served for two years as the director of national contracts and strategic market development.

Chris Day, president of Teadit North America, said, “When we hired Robbie, we were expecting good things with national contracts – he understands what the customer wants and does a great job building programs that fit the needs of the customer. And we knew he would increase sales in key product lines for us, like our various PTFE gasket products. While we are very happy with the results of those important initiatives, we underestimated the value that he would bring to our distribution partners.”
