He has more than 19 years of experience in the fenestration industry, working for companies such as Arc Specs (an EFCO sales representative), Wausau Window and Wall Systems and Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope®. He graduated with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration from Kent State University in Ohio.
