No matter the size of a home, replacement windows can be a pretty big job all by itself. Now imagine replacing the leader of a multi-million dollar corporation. It’s been almost eight months, but Pella Window and Doors has announced a new CEO and president. The company with which Pella West Michigan works directly with to provide customers with the best quality patio doors, front doors and replacement windows Grand Rapids MI has to offer has named Tim Yaggi to the position.
According to the Woodworking Network, Yaggi was the former CEO and interim president at Tempur Sealy International, as well as high-ranking positions with MASCO Corp. Group President of the North America Builder Group and Whirlpool Corp.
“As I begin my new role, I will be focused on leveraging our solid competitive advantages and talented team to build upon Pella’s strong brand and product innovation pipeline as we continually focus on enhancing value for Pella customers,” Yaggi said.
The company’s top position has been held by interim CEO and Board chair Adam Farver since last October when the replacement window and door manufacturer parted ways with then-CEO Pat Meyer. At the time, the company cited a need for new leadership as the reason for his departure.
“We conducted an extensive, nationwide search focused on finding a proven leader with profound experience, a strong commitment to profitable growth, and who shared our culture and values,” Farver said. “Tim has demonstrated the ability to create value and drive sustained business results as well as build high-performing teams.”
Regardless of who’s been in charge, the Pella products we offer have remained at the top of the industry in terms of quality and style. They’re a great investment for the 56% of homeowners who are thinking about remodeling projects this summer. They can also save you up to 15% on you home’s energy bill if you’re currently using leaky or inefficient models, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Replacement windows typically provide a return on investment of at least 70%.
