Ply Gem appointed Eric Spence as senior vice president of sales and marketing for the Ply Gem Windows group. In this newly created role, Spence is responsible for expanding Ply Gem Windows’ sales and marketing efforts, aligning the two functions under one common structure.

“We are confident Eric’s experience and proven track record uniquely position him to align and expand our sales and marketing operations, while building our consumer and trade branding efforts," says Art Steinhafel, Ply Gem president. "I look forward to our new leadership organization.”

Spence has more than 25 years of window and door experience with JELD-WEN, where he held several sales leadership positions. In his most recent position as senior vice president of sales, Spence was responsible for strategic market planning, sales and business development, pricing, key account management, budgeting and expense control, and staff development through all business channels in the United States and Canada.

Immediately prior to accepting his new role with Ply Gem Windows, Spence served as president and CEO of Empirical Sales Solutions LLC, where he developed comprehensive strategic sales plans, including market evaluation and territory expansion plans, as well as integrated sales and marketing strategies for accounts such as Sierra Door, MasterGrain and Ferche Millwork.
