Super Sky Products Enterprises announced the pending retirement of Rod Kivioja, director of sales, after 44 years of service. The company has hired Larry Grassmann to replace Kivioja, who will work with Grassmann during the transition.

“We will miss Rod’s leadership, as well as his knack for closing the sale,” says Super Sky president Brian Thomas. “His entrepreneurial spirit, as well as his commitment to serving and providing each customer with a remarkable custom-built structural system, contributed to the continued success of the company.”

Grassmann has more than 15 years of sales and marketing experience in the commercial construction industry, working in executive management positions for such companies as Nabco Entrance Co. and TechTeriors.

“Larry’s strong sales background and customer-focused attitude enable him to continue in the footsteps of Rod Kivioja and adhere to Super Sky’s commitment to sell only quality products to its customers,” a release from the company reads.
