Unicel Architectural, a manufacturer of vision and daylight control solutions, hired Octavio Valdivia to focus on sales for the New York City metropolitan area.

Based in New York, he has more than 20 years of experience as both an architect and product sales professional.

“Octavio’s experience is perfect for Unicel as we amplify our efforts in key high-growth markets,” says Viviane Chan, director of sales for Unicel. “His architectural background spans many commercial projects including institutional, healthcare, corporate, hospitality and retail, which gives him deep insights into the vision and daylight control requirements for virtually any design project.”

“As an architect, I developed a keen interest in the building components that enhance a structure’s design, function and performance,” adds Octavio. “The opportunity to work with the Unicel team was a no-brainer for me.”
