WDMA Names New President

The Window and Door Manufacturers Association announced that it has named Joel Hoiland as its new president.
Most recently, Hoiland served as president and chief executive officer of the International Warehouse Logistics Association in Chicago, a multi-million-dollar supply chain logistics organization and captive insurance company. There, he re-branded the organization, following its charter to rebuild/reposition the association.

In five year's time he increased the net worth of the organization without raising dues, expanded membership benefits and spearheaded an historic alliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Association to implement worker safety programs. He also launched certification programs and conferences for information technology, marketing, sales, safety and risk. A certified association executive, he holds a certificate from the Institute of Organization Management.

Hoiland understands what drives WDMA.

"The most significant strengths I see in WDMA are the quality companies and people that comprise the membership, as well as the excellent platform to move the association to a higher level," he said.

"These are critical times in the door, window and skylight industry, perfect for Hoiland to enter our organization. Our members need a strong representative organization in WDMA to act as a unified voice for the industry. We want our members to be able to offer the finest products, manufactured to exacting standards and beyond, so they in turn can offer them to their customers," said Jim Hackett, vice president of marketing for the door division of JELD-WEN Inc. and the WDMA chair.

WDMA members attending the association's Fall Conference at the JW Marriott Resort and Spa in Las Vegas, October 27-30, 2006, will have an opportunity to meet Hoiland during "A Time to Shine."
