C.R. Laurence (CRL) announced the expansion of its executive team with the promotions of Chris Hanstad, Bojan Komadina and Armando Rodriquez.

Hanstad takes over as vice president of architectural sales. Most recently, he served as brand manager of the company’s architectural railings, where he oversaw the development of the first and only glass railing system to be approved by the International Code Council, according to the company.

In his new position, Hanstad will leverage his project management experience and thorough working knowledge of the construction project delivery process to facilitate project efficiencies for architects and stakeholders.

Komadina was appointed vice president of engineering. He lead the early development and expansion of CRL’s engineering department from a small group of engineers to a highly-trained team of more than 50 engineers, architects, draftsmen and support personnel.

Komadina also helped with the implementation of a design group distinct from the production group, which will allow former vice president of engineering Gary Sprague to focus on his new role as vice president of design, according to the company.

Rodriguez is the new vice president of production. Joining CRL almost 10 years ago in a technical sales capacity for the architectural metals brand, Rodriguez became instrumental in production management for this product line, according to the company.

“As C.R. Laurence continues to grow, it is essential that we strengthen our leadership foundation to maintain the same reputation for quality service and innovative products,” says Lloyd Talbert, president. “We are proud to have Chris, Bojan, and Armando continue with the company in these elevated positions and know they will play a critical role in our continued success.”
