Wiley will oversee the creation and development of all Rookwood Pottery marketing materials, as well as its growing library of product catalogs. In his career, Wiley has created promotional materials, catalogs and flyers that have helped generate millions of dollars in sales for his clients, which ranged from hotels, restaurants, airports and musicians.
"Rick's experience includes marketing products with both a U.S. and European scope, which is essential to Rookwood as it regains its international notoriety," said Martin Wade, owner of Rookwood Pottery.
