YKK AP America hired Dave Herber as its first California-based architectural sales representative and promoted Evan Gibson and Jessica Rios. Gibson has assumed the role of branch manager of the company’s Houston branch, and Rios is now operations manager of the Dallas branch.
In his new position, Gibson will cover Southern Texas and the Gulf Coast region. He joined YKK AP in January 2015 as service center manager in Houston.
Rios first joined YKK AP in May 2014 as a project manager. In her new role in Dallas, she will cover northern Texas, surrounding states and the West Coast.
Herber joins the company with façade industry experience in business development and architectural consulting service in southern California, where he will represent the brand in major markets such as Los Angeles and San Diego.
The company plans to soon add additional representation in the San Francisco Bay area and has established a transportation and logistics system to service California from its base of operations in Texas, according to a release.
“We are dedicated to hiring and promoting the best employees to provide outstanding value and service to our customers,” says Oliver Stepe, senior vice president of YKK AP America. “As we focus on strengthening our presence in the Texas region and expand our reach to western United States markets, we will continue to invest in our facilities and employees.”
