Amy Cole has been named president of Tubelite Inc. She joins Tubelite on March 31 and will report to Joseph F. Puishys, CEO of Apogee Enterprises Inc., parent company of Tubelite.
“Amy brings more than 25 years’ experience in the construction industry, as an executive leading sales, marketing, manufacturing and engineering,” says Puishys. “She has successfully grown businesses by implementing innovative strategies, while meeting business objectives.”
Most recently, Cole was general manager of the residential/light commercial business at Kohler Power Systems in Kohler, Wis. From 1988 to 2012, she was with Hilti North America.
Cole succeeds Ken Werbowy, who is retiring after 20 years as president. “I congratulate Ken on his retirement from Tubelite, which has seen outstanding growth under his leadership since Apogee acquired the company in 2007,” says Puishys. “I am pleased that Apogee will continue to benefit from Ken’s deep industry knowledge as he supports Apogee’s corporate development efforts on a part-time basis.”
