YKK AP announced the promotion of Stephanie Burroughs to architectural sales representative for the Pennsylvania market, and the appointment of Jim Anderson as residential sales representative for North Carolina.
Burroughs replaces Jeff Turicik who has retired. She will leverage more than 15 years of experience to continue to cultivate the central Pennsylvania market, a territory that Turicik diligently built up over the past 26 years. She has been with YKK AP since 2007 and most recently served as senior customer service administrator for the Baltimore branch.
In 2019, Burroughs was awarded YKK AP’s Core Values Award, which is given to employees who live out the company’s values daily – building experience to create success, being a person of trust, integrity and respect, and insistence on quality in everything they do.
“Stephanie’s commitment and dedication to her customers and to her colleagues is evident in her everyday work,” said Mike Turner, senior vice president of sales and marketing, YKK AP America Inc. “We are proud to promote her to architectural sales representative, where she will apply her deep account management expertise and experience to contribute to the growth and success of our customers, our organization and our industry.”
“I am truly honored for the opportunity to deepen and expand my relationships with YKK AP’s architectural and glazing customers in this next chapter of my career,” said Burroughs.
Anderson will be responsible for promoting brand awareness and building long-term customer relationships with door and window dealers and homebuilders throughout North Carolina. Drawing on more than five years of experience as a manufacturer’s sales representative for architectural products, the company says he is knowledgeable on overarching market trends, and will bring his expertise to the local market.
“We’re truly excited to expand our sales team in the state of North Carolina, where residential home sales continue to grow exponentially,” said Rick Cawston, general manager of YKK AP’s residential service division. “Jim’s extensive knowledge of the regional market will bring a collaborative approach to our customers.”
Prior to joining YKK AP, Anderson worked with metal-based architectural building components manufacturers to market and manage product lines within North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.
