Ms. Aboolian will handle customers in California, Utah, Colorado, and Montana, while Ms. Khenansho will be assigned to California, New Mexico, Nevada and Wyoming.

According to Christina Fiduccia, Vice President of E.T. Horn's Essential Elements Group, the new hires are expected to strengthen a sales team that's long been recognized for outstanding customer service and industry knowledge.
