Mary Avery

Tubelite Inc. has promoted Mary Avery to vice president of sales and marketing and Tom Mifflin to director of marketing. Working together with colleagues and clients, they will support the strategic growth of Tubelite’s storefront, curtainwall, entrances and daylight control systems, according to the company.

“Mary’s extraordinary leadership skills combined with her industry experience and strong relationships with our clients and sales organization have made her extremely successful in every role she’s held with the company,” says Tubelite president, Steve Green. “Tom also has proven his leadership within the company and will use his vast knowledge of the industry and diverse background to take the marketing group to new levels.”

In her new role, Avery will lead the development and implementation of Tubelite sales and marketing plans, support new and existing client initiatives, oversee marketing communications and work closely with research and development for product introductions and updates. She continues to report directly to Green and will oversee the regional sales managers, national accounts and marketing team as part of the Tubelite executive leadership team.

Avery began her career at Tubelite more than a decade ago as the manager of client services before being promoted to manager of client services and marketing in 2009. To support the substantial growth and an increased focus on marketing, Tubelite concentrated her role as the marketing manager and then promoted her to director of marketing in 2013. Avery continued to be a driving force in Tubelite’s success and was promoted to vice president of marketing in 2016, according to the company. Previous to her employment at Tubelite, Avery was the customer service training manager at DTE Energy Company.

Tubelite’s regional sales managers Jim Oberlin, Pat Daniels and Terry Robinholt; development manager Kent Baumann; and Mifflin will report directly to Avery.

Mifflin moves into Avery’s earlier role as director of marketing where he will oversee the architectural specification, promotion strategy, public relations, as well as the website and pricing.

Joining Tubelite in 2015 as a product manager, Mifflin has worked closely with the company’s marketing, sales and engineering teams as well as clients to help develop products and services. Before joining Tubelite, he worked at Wausau Window and Wall Systems for 20 years in engineering, research, product development and architectural services. Previous to Wausau Window and Wall Systems, Mifflin held the position of project engineer at Columbia Research Corp. where he supported facility, communication and tactical equipment projects for the U.S. Marine and Naval Special Warfare Commands.
