It was the first time for many of Stone Peak Ceramic’s distributors stepping into their downtown Chicago headquarters, applauding their partners’ efforts recently with a cocktail dinner within the company’s luxurious showroom.  

Stone Peak expressed gratitude and recognition for their distributors whom their porcelain ceramic products are exclusively sold through, providing them with a current business summary and 2007 itinerary during the event. The guests were thanked by CEO Graziano Verdi, and also introduced to StonePeak’s new sales director, Germano Bonardi, and StonePeak’s new technical services director, Noah Chitty.

“The distributor’s role is paramount in our business,” said Verdi. “In order to build and sustain strong relationships with our distributors, it is important to recognize their hard work, and to ensure them that they are included in our overall business strategy and planning.”
