MIDDLETON, MASS. -- The Bostik Flooring Group has appointed building-industry veteran Jesse Haberstich Mid-Atlantic Territory Manager - Ceramic and Hardwood Products.

Haberstich manages Bostik's DURABOND® and Hydroment® ceramic accounts and Bostik® Hardwood customer relationships in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey and Central Eastern Pennsylvania.

Haberstich brings with him to Bostik several years of building-industry experience. At James Hardie Building Products, Haberstich was national accounts representative for Home Depot, Lowes and tile distributors, and he served as a Hardibacker cement board underlayment sales representative. Before that, he serviced accounts for Pitell Marble & Tile in Pittsburgh.

"The distributors and contractors I worked with before always had great things to say about Bostik's people and products," Haberstich said. "So, when the opportunity arose to join the Bostik Flooring Group, I knew I couldn't pass it up.

"Bostik Flooring Group's customers and employees are extremely loyal and, as the market leader, their products are second to none," Haberstich added. "Another major draw is that Bostik is a true innovator. For example, Bostik Flooring Group's partnering with Schluter Systems made it extremely difficult for me to sell cement board underlyament against their complete system featuring Bostik's mortars (KERDI-SET and DITRA-SET) and Schluter's membranes (Schluter®-DITRA and Schluter®-KERDI). In the end, I figured: If I can't b eat 'em, why not join 'em?"

Haberstich earned a bachelor of science degree from Penn State University in 2003, with a major in business management and marketing. He reports directly to Brian Kelley, Eastern Regional Sales Manager for the Bostik Flooring Group.

"Jesse Haberstich is a tremendous addition to our team," Kelley said. "Jesse's industry experience and proven communications, marketing and sales skills make him a perfect fit for our growing group."
