December 16, 2013

Gary Hartman has been named director of marketing and new business development for Chelsea Building Products. Hartman began his career in the window and door industry 30 years ago with Season-All Industries before working at Chelsea from 1985-1995 in a variety of sales and marketing positions. He returned to Chelsea in 2008 to lead marketing communications and customer service management, and assist with customer relations and new business and product development. In his new role, Hartman’s responsibilities expand to include new business development in windows, doors and Chelsea’s specialty products division.

“Gary’s extensive knowledge and broad background in the fenestration and building products industry will be a benefit to his new responsibilities in new business development," says VP Terry Abels. "Gary will continue to be an asset to Chelsea Building Products as we expand our specialty products division that includes vinyl cellular PVC and polymeric cladding applications.”

Chelsea Building Products also recently announced the appointment of Brad Fello to the newly created position of quality assurance manager, responsible for developing systems to assure consistent product quality, beginning with the raw materials and ending with the finished lineal extrusion. Fello began his career in the window industry at Thermal Industries as its branch manager. He continued his experience in director positions at Traco, where he worked in the quality, manufacturing and materials departments.
