Scott Gates

Western Window Systems, part of the PGT Innovations family of brands, has announced that its president, Scott Gates, will depart the company on January 31, 2020, to form an entrepreneurial clothing company with the social goal of helping inmates gain new skills, earn fair wages and provide for their families.

“Scott is a dynamic figure in the fenestration world and his role in Western Window Systems’ significant growth cannot be overstated,” says PGT Innovations CEO Jeff Jackson, “from delivering record-breaking sales to overseeing growth enablers, such as new products, to market expansion to development of sales and marketing strategies and a strong company culture. Western Window Systems will continue to benefit from Scott’s talents through the ongoing work of the amazing leadership team he has built. I’m happy that our relationship continues to evolve and look forward to seeing Scott realize his dream.”

Prior to beginning his role as president in August 2015, Gates served as Western Window Systems’ president and chief operating officer following assignments as vice president and general manager and marketing director.
