LOS ANGELES – Walker Zanger, the leading stone and tile design resource in North America, announced today three new hires to its regional sales teams: North Hills, Calif. showroom manager, Greg Rang, Atlanta branch manager, Anita Crosby and Houston branch manager, Nova Carter.
This announcement comes after Walker Zanger’s investment in local market showrooms with the expansion of its Atlanta showroom and the opening of the new Charlotte location in 2019. Each of the new managers will play a vital role in the brand’s continued growth in showroom sales in their respective markets and strengthening existing client relationships.
In the new position as the North Hills showroom manager, Greg Rang brings his background in brand building, sales and team management.

Rang also was leading the product placement division at the public relations firm, PMK/BNC.
As Atlanta branch manager, Anita Crosby is responsible for leading the Atlanta team. Previously, Crosby was showroom manager for Robert Allen, where she optimized customer service and strengthened client relationships. Crosby was also an assistant showroom manager for Pierre Deux, where she improved design solutions to trade and retail clients, and ran a full-service interior design firm, Anita Crosby Interiors.
In her new position as Houston branch manager, Nova Carter is responsible for administering and developing sales with the Houston team. Prior to joining the Walker Zanger team, Carter held the title of store manager for Pacific Kitchen and Home, where she built a 15-person sales team and trained new associates. Carter also served as operations and specialty manager at The Home Depot, where she oversaw the sales floor and visual merchandising.
