Quanex Building Products Invests in Business DevelopmentJanuary 19th, 2012 by DWM Magazine
Quanex Building Products Corp. has hired Reed P. Gnos as a business development manager. He will be responsible for sales and product/business development for the specialty components market (non-fenestration accounts) in North America. This role will include expanding and diversifying Quanex’s core competencies into new markets and adding new customers throughout North America, according to the company.
Gnos has more than 18 years of sales and marketing experience. In 2003, he started his own company, RPG Sales Inc., a small manufacturer’s rep firm. He has operated the firm as owner and president for almost 10 years, with responsibilities that included managing all sales and marketing efforts for more than $2 million in annual sales.
“This newly created position allows me the opportunity to start up another new business venture, much like I did 10 years ago, although this time I get to do it for an organization that specializes in manufacturing excellence,” said Gnos. “This new opportunity and expanded market focus give me the potential to build a program outside of Quanex’s traditional business model.”
