Graham Architectural Products appointed Joe Cerminara vice president of process engineering and Tuan Tran vice president of design engineering. Following a transition period to assist them in their new roles, executive vice president Dennis Kelly will assume new responsibilities for corporate initiatives within the business.
“All three of these respected industry leaders bring a tremendous passion for our industry, as well as a strong and continued commitment to drive the future progress and value enhancement of Graham Architectural Products as the leader within that industry,” says Brian Hurley, Graham’s president and CEO.
Cerminara will be the company’s chief application/production process engineer, responsible for all aspects of its application engineering and production engineering activities, V6 processing team and project scope support. His career includes a 30-year tenure at Traco Inc., now Alcoa Commercial Windows, where he held multiple engineering leadership roles. He also served as commercial engineering manager at Season-All Industries for several years in the early 1990s.
Tran will be Graham’s chief product design engineer, covering project engineering, product engineering development and manufacturing engineering. He will also lead the quality and V6 ERP platform initiatives. Previously, he spent time at Guardian Industries as a regional technical advisor. Prior to Guardian, Tran worked for Kawneer Co., where he served as technical design engineer manager. He began his career in the industry at YKK AP America Inc., as a design engineer for its architectural aluminum storefront, entrance, curtainwall and window systems business.
Kelly, in addition to leading Graham’s field service team, will become a strategic technical advisor within the company, identifying new technologies, materials and industry trends. He will provide support to the sales team with an emphasis on strategic sales team projects, and will support national account development and new market opportunities.
Kelly will lead the revitalized “Graham University” to offer technical training for employees, and will continue to represent Graham at AAMA and other industry professional trade organizations.
