Quanex Building Products Corp. announced today that August (Gus) J. Coppola was promoted to senior vice president of Quanex Building Products, reporting to David D. Petratis, chairman and chief executive officer. Coppola was formerly the president of the company’s Truseal business. In his new role, Coppola’s key responsibility will be to serve as the champion of Quanex’s Project Nexus initiative.

Project Nexus is a sales growth initiative formally launched by Quanex earlier this year. The initiative calls for the integration of its Engineered Products Group (EPG) sales, marketing and product development teams. Coppola and his EPG team will be focused on customer needs, and the team will be bringing more product solutions to current customers while reaching out to new customers.

“Gus brings the essential experience, background and management philosophy necessary to champion this strategic initiative,” said Petratis. “I believe Gus’ energy, years of experience in the industry and management skills suit our needs perfectly.”

Quanex also announced that David Marlar was promoted to general manager at Truseal, and will assume most of Coppola’s former responsibilities. Pete Donoghue was also promoted to vice president sales – EPG. Donoghue will be working with Coppola to further refine the structure of the EPG sales and marketing organization.
