J. Keenan Burns has been named president of A.W. Hastings of Enfield, Conn., Marvin Windows and Doors’ representative in New England and Eastern New York. The news comes as former President Stephen “Dusty” Hoyt announces his retirement after 45 years of service to the award-winning company.

Burns, who has been with Hastings for the past 30 years, has served the company as vice president since 1996, and as executive vice president and COO since 2004.

“This is truly a natural evolution for our organization, and a seamless continuation of how we have been working,” Hoyt said. “I look forward to watching Keenan continue to bring the same passion, innovation and insight to his new role that has served Hastings and our customers so well for decades.”

Hastings has been family-owned since its founding in 1846, and members of the Hoyt family are still actively engaged in the business on a daily basis.

“Dusty’s impact can be seen in the deep ties we have with our customers and with Marvin,” Burns said. “Many of these relationships go back decades, often with people who themselves are members of family-owned companies. All of us at Hastings owe him our gratitude, and we will continue to build upon our solid foundation as we move forward.”
