PGT Industries announced that Todd Antonelli has joined as vice president of sales and marketing. Antonelli comes to PGT from Masco Corp. where he most recently was director of sales for Masco Cabinetry.
“Todd’s skill and experience positions PGT to be poised for growth when the market turns. We’re looking to leverage Todd’s strong leadership and relationship building expertise to aggressively grow market share,” says Rod Hershberger, PGT president and CEO. “Our sales team has traditionally been developed from internal candidates. This particular move enables us to capitalize on a broader base of experience.”
PGT also announced Debbie LaPinska as the vice president of customer relations. This newly formed position serves as the customer advocate and provides a comprehensive and authoritative view of the customer at the highest level to the organization, according to the announcement. This important role solidifies the customer experience across all levels of the company to ensure greater customer value and increased loyalty.
“Formalizing this position was a natural step as PGT is known for its customer centric culture,” adds Hershberger. “Selecting the ideal person for this position was critical because of its implications for customers and employees.”
