Kawneer has named Sneh Kumar the director of global sustainability. He will develop and lead the company’s sustainability strategy, focusing on product design and certification, along with supply chain transparency and optimization.

Kumar has spent more than 20 years in the manufacturing industry. Before his new role, Kumar was a product manager for Kawneer’s curtainwall, window wall, sun control and finishes, where he differentiated the company’s curtainwall portfolio with seismic testing. He also led a significant energy performance enhancement strategy for the entire curtainwall portfolio using a warm-edge simulation and the addition of triple-glazing enhancements.

“We are thrilled to have Sneh lead sustainability globally for Kawneer,” says Laurent Salah, building and construction systems president. “His expertise in our industry will be invaluable as we continue to develop and implement innovative solutions that promote environmental stewardship and well-being.”

Kumar has been actively involved with industry associations, architects and customers. He has also served on the National Fenestration Rating Council board.
