Moss, Inc is announced on April 1 the appointment of Bob Frey to the position of executive vice president of research and development.
Frey has been with Moss as vice president of research and development since 2006 when the company acquired Nichols Incorporated in Salt Lake City.

Prior to that Frey was the vice president of Marker and general manager of DNR USA for Marker International. He also was responsible for the construction of a 56,000-square-foot snow board factory.
“Unequivocally, Bob brings substantial value to our organization with his strategic thinking and leadership,” Charlie Corsentino, chairman, president and CEO of Moss. “I am delighted that he now serves on Moss’ executive team.”
Frey has created many innovative products and most recently, he developed a revolutionary new modular wall system, the Moss EZ Fabric Wall System, which combines the versatility of modular walls with the benefits of lightweight fabric structures. Additionally, he has led the Moss team in launching a made-for-fabric Moss Groove Light Box system and also the introduction of the Moss Groove system as well as the lauded Entasi and Allure systems.
“Introducing new products and being on the cutting edge of innovation is what sets us apart from our competition,” said Shelly Alex, vice president, sales and marketing. “Bob has done an excellent job of keeping Moss positioned as the leader and innovator in our field.”
