Dietz has been a part of WINCO for 11 years and will continue as an independent rep covering Missouri, Southern Illinois, Kansas and Nebraska. He will support his current Winco responsibilities until September 2021. Dietz is also opening his own independent company, Dietz Architectural Products LLC., which he believes will allow him to serve WINCO customers better directly.
“With his extensive knowledge of the company, estimating, and technical aspects of aluminum windows, we believe that Joe will continue to be a great value to WINCO customers,” says Bill Krenn, president of WINCO. “His skill set is unique, and we are confident he’ll bring insight to the architectural community we serve.”
According to the company, one of Dietz’s first goals is to help schools and essential facilities design safe rooms for tornadoes and intruder protection.
“I have always had a passion to problem solve and build relationships,” says Dietz of the new career step. “Last fall, I was cleaning out our basement and found a box of papers that I wrote in college. One was a career planning paper, where I wrote that when I am 45, I will own my own company. Then Tim (Cox) announced his retirement, and the opportunity was there.”
