 YKK AP America named Terry Carespodi national sales manager and Joseph Bernard Midwest region branch manager. Carespodi will be instrumental in implementing strategic initiatives aimed at sales growth in the Texas region, where the company has ambitious market plans after recently breaking ground on a new manufacturing facility in 2013. Bernard will assume full operational authority of the Cincinnati and Chicago business units, where he will succeed Phil Blizzard, who plans to retire by July 2014.

“As we continue to expand in the greater Texas region and look for additional growth opportunities there and in other parts of the country, we are excited to have the superior leadership of Terry and Joseph,” says Oliver Stepe, senior vice president.
