Developments at Levantina Chicago

May 1, 2012
Levantina announced the appointment of Sole Llorca to the position of General Manager of Levantina Chicago. Along with the new appointment, Levantina has also renewed its commitment to the Chicago branch by investing in a new layout and inventory. Llorca brings a wealth of knowledge to the General Manager position. She has been with Levantina for over 15 years as part of Levantina’s Export Department. Llorca started her role in Spain and has been working in the U.S. for the past 12 years. Her varying roles within the department have included business development, strategic sales and quality control.

“Levantina USA is extremely happy to welcome Sole into her new position,” stated David Garcia, Levantina USA Managing Director. “We know that with her strong background and expertise, she will be a tremendous asset — not only to Chicago, but to Levantina USA sales as a whole. Sole’s ability to build strong client relationships and her commitment to quality customer service, makes her the perfect choice to run the Chicago branch.”

In her new role, Llorca will be responsible for the daily operations of the Chicago showroom and warehouse along with managing the sales and warehouse staff.

Levantina Chicago will hold an event at their showroom in June to introduce Llorca and to showcase their new materials and updated warehouse layout. Levantina USA’s Managing Director David Garcia and executives from Levantina Spain will be in attendance.

“We have made a strong commitment to the Chicago branch with a new General Manager, new warehouse layout and new inventory, and we regard it as a core market for the company,” stated Garcia. “We are confident that the very visible investment commitments we are making will afford Levantina Chicago a more significant share of the natural stone market in this area.”
