Trulite Glass & Aluminum Solutions announced the retirement of Super Sky president Jim Roesing after more than 47 years in the engineered commercial skylight business.
According to the announcement, Roesing has served as president since 1987, and under his leadership, Super Sky had major projects on every continent, including the Santiago Calatrava Art Museum, Mall of America, Palaces in Brunei and Thailand, numerous Smithsonian installations, malls in Portugal and Korea, residences in Nigeria, hotels in China and schools in Brazil.
“We will miss Jim’s first-rate leadership as well as his stewardship,” says Trulite CEO Paul Schmitz. “Jim is a true entrepreneur in the finest sense, committed to serving and providing each customer he touched a remarkable experience.”
Brian Thomas, who is taking Roesing’s place, will work closely with him to ensure a smooth transition, according to the company.
Thomas was most recently vice president of operations at Madison Glass Company and has more than 15 years in the fabrication and construction business. He studied business at Northern Michigan University.
“Brian’s strong track record of success in roles of increasing importance and responsibility make it clear that he is the ideal person to take the reins from Jim Roesing,” says Schmitz. “His strong operational background and customer centric attitude will continue to grow Super Sky where Jim has left off.”
