Accura Systems Inc. announced several organizational changes, including the retirement of an aluminum and glass industry stalwart.

Company officials say that Rene Strong, vice president of estimating and sales, will retire at the end of 2024. He joined Accura in 2009 following an eight-year stint at Texas Wall Systems. Before that, he worked in various roles at Thad Ziegler Glass and Atlas Architectural Metals.

“There is no way to quantify the millions of dollars or the number of projects Rene has personally closed for Accura and our many customers,” say officials. “Rene is a one-of-a-kind hands-on estimator, manager and officer of Accura.”

Clay Coltharp will replace Strong as vice president of estimating and sales. Coltharp joined Accura in 2012. He has worked as a project manager and is currently the vice president of contract management. Before Accura, he worked as a project manager at Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope Inc. Officials say Coltharp is a natural fit for the role.

Officials add that Ryan Alexander will become the vice president of project management. He currently is the vice president of engineering. He started at Accura in 2015 as a project manager.

“Ryan was successful at project management and involved in many mockups and complex projects,” say officials. “His success in that area led directly to his selection for the vice president of engineering role. We expect that to translate to his ability to lead the project management team.”

Additionally, Glen Sullivan has been promoted to vice president of engineering. He joined Accura in 2016 as an engineering manager. Officials say that Sullivan is an “incredible asset and a fun guy to work with even when things are not going as planned. We have every confidence he will do as well in this position as he has in any of the others he has held.”
