The Marvin Companies elected Kirsten Castillo and Russ Becker to its board of directors.

Castillo previously served as CEO of Logistics Planning Services, which was named one of America’s fastest growing companies seven years in a row. Castillo led the strategic sale of LPS to GlobalTranz in 2017 and now serves on the board of advisors for the Fuqua’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Duke University while also sharing her time with numerous nonprofit organizations.

Becker is the president and CEO of APi Group Inc., a North American specialty contractor. During Becker’s tenure, APi Group acquired more than 60 independently managed life safety, energy, specialty construction and infrastructure companies and grew to more than $3.8 billion in annual sales. Becker also serves on the Children’s Hospitals Foundation board along with the Liberty Diversified Industries and Advisory Board of Directors for the Engineering School at Michigan Technical University.

“Kirsten and Russ are ideal additions to The Marvin Companies board of directors,” says Susan Marvin, chair of the board. “Both bring diverse business experience and a passion for innovation, and we are fortunate to add their talents to the board.”

Jackie Schneider was hired as Marvin's vice president of marketing and will work directly with president Darrin Peterson to support the organization’s window and door sales growth. Schneider will be responsible for designing, implementing and monitoring the effectiveness of marketing strategies that drive growth.

“Jackie brings significant experience as a strategic marketing thought-leader to Marvin,” says Peterson. “Her design expertise coupled with her aptitude for human-centered solutions are an ideal match for Marvin’s evolving product portfolio.”

Most recently, Schneider was the director of brand marketing for the Heat & Glo brand at Hearth & Home Technologies. She brings more than 15 years of building industry experience to Marvin, including more than 10 years with Kohler leading showroom and store sales along with marketing strategy and implementation. Prior to that, Schneider spent several years as a practicing interior architect.

“Having worked in the building industry my entire career, I’ve always held Marvin in the highest regard,” says Schneider. “I am looking forward to working with the team to delight customers at every touchpoint as they experience Marvin’s products and services.”
