Momentum Glass (formerly Momentum Exterior Systems) has added significant capability to its Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) presence by hiring two DFW-based market executives, Kyle Gaskill and Jared Parker. The company also obtained dedicated warehouse and office space. Momentum’s DFW facility will be located at 8925 Sterling Street, Suite 100 in Irving, Texas, just north of DFW Airport.

Gaskill, who was named general manager, has more than a decade of experience in all aspects of the glazing industry. He has led or participated in more than 50 projects totaling more than 1.5 million square feet of glass. He is a graduate of the University of Central Florida.

Parker, who was named business development manager, has more than 12 years’ experience in the glazing industry. Previously, Parker served as an architectural advisor for Schüco USA, and prior to that, was with Trainor Glass. Parker is a graduate of the University of Texas at Dallas.

“Momentum is a born-and-bred Texas company and Texas is where we’re focused. Momentum has ambitious goals for our Texas focus, and while we’ve had a presence in Dallas-Fort Worth for the past three years, our Dallas customers wanted to see us commit in a bigger way. Now with a fully-staffed office and two of the Dallas glazing industry’s best and brightest, our customers know we’re ready to deliver,” says Omar Maalouf, CEO of Momentum Glass.

Earlier this year, Momentum hired John Shaddix as chief financial officer. Prior to joining Momentum, Shaddix was a principal with the Houston office of The Boston Consulting Group.
