Hospitality product supplier Guest Supply has renamed itself Guest Worldwide and restructured into three distinct business units. The three silos, Gilchrist & Soames, Manchester Mills and Guest Supply, will focus on bath products, textiles and general hospitality supplies, respectively.

“As the industry landscape evolves, we are optimizing our business model and creating a more focused and agile organization to better meet changing customer needs and drive future growth,” Sandy Romoser, EVP of Guest Worldwide, said in a statement. “Operating as a complementary portfolio of businesses will enable us to focus on our customers' unique needs and drive innovation across each business segment, while also leveraging a shared services model to create efficiencies.”

Romoser and President/COO Paul Xenis will continue to lead the Guest Supply business unit, in addition to their Guest Worldwide roles. Elizabeth McNulty, a textile industry veteran with over 25 years of experience, will lead the Manchester Mills division as SVP. Roys Laux, currently VP of global strategy for Guest Supply, will oversee Gilchrist & Soames as SVP and general manager. Laux joined Guest Supply in 2015 when the company bought Gilchrist & Soames.
