Jacksonville Fla.—Cain & Bultman, a flooring distributor based here, added its sales force, which the company said would focus on growth in Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina.

The new employees are as follows:
Rick Horne joins as business development manager, metro Atlanta/North Georgia. Horne previously served as President, RA Siegel and Vice President, Sales, Gilford Johnson.
