Andersen Realigns Business Units
Andersen Corp. has promoted Holly Boehne to chief technology officer and Jerry Redmond to president of its Andersen Division. The changes are part of an organizational realignment following the planned retirement of Craig Evanich, senior vice president and chief sales & marketing officer.
Andersen will now be comprised of three divisions: Andersen, Silver Line and Renewal by Andersen. The Andersen Division includes its architectural collection, storm doors, and Andersen wood clad and composite windows and patio doors. This change brings a stronger focus and accountability to the company's three main businesses, officials state.
Boehne joined Andersen in September 2004 as senior vice president of research, development and innovation. Her experience spans engineering, product development and commercialization, operations and lean management. In her new role, Boehne adds responsibility for supply chain services.
"There is a natural alignment between our research development and innovation and supply chain services areas," says Jay Lund, Andersen chairman, president and CEO. "Holly's leadership will create an integrated supplier strategy that combines our technology direction with our supplier capacity."
"After thirteen years with Andersen, Craig will be missed," Lund adds. "He successfully transformed Renewal by Andersen from a concept to an industry leader in window replacement. He set the direction for the business, built a talented team, and created a strong company-owned and affiliate network. Then he took on an additional challenge with our traditional business along with sales and marketing, where he's made a significant impact."
Redmond joined the company as senior vice president of operations and supply chain management in 2007, with responsibility for manufacturing, order management, logistics and procurement. Since then, he is credited with integrating the supply chain, driving the Andersen Management System into manufacturing, and improving safety, quality and customer service.
"Jerry's extensive knowledge and expertise make him the ideal leader for our new Andersen Division and he has been instrumental in helping us to successfully manage through the recession," Lund states.
