PGT Names New Sales/Marketing VP

May 3, 2012

Todd Antonelli has joined PGT Industries as vice president of sales and marketing. He comes to the Florida-based window and door manufacturer from Masco Corp.,  where he most recently was director of sales for Masco Cabinetry.

"Todd's skill and experience positions PGT to be poised for growth when the market turns," states Rod Hershberger, PGT president and CEO. "We're looking to leverage Todd's strong leadership and relationship building expertise to aggressively grow market share. Our sales team has traditionally been developed from internal candidates. This particular move enables us to capitalize on a broader base of experience."

The company has also named Debbie LaPinska to the newly-created position of vice president of customer relations.  In her new role, she serves as customer advocate to provide a comprehensive and authoritative view of the customer at the highest level to the organization and help ensure greater customer value and increased loyalty, officials note. 

"Formalizing this position was a natural step as PGT is known for its customer centric culture," Hershberger states. "Selecting the ideal person for this position was critical because of its implications for customers and employees."
