PITTSBURGH — Adding depth to the team now serving residential builders, building-materials dealers and distributors, and architects across the U.S.A., Versatex Building Products, LLC, has added six new members to its sales and market development lineup in the U.S. and Canada.
Coming aboard this month, according to vice president of sales Rick Kapres, are Commercial/Architectural Specialist John Pepe of Pitman, NJ, and Market Development Specialists (MDS) John Chadwick Jr., of Long Island City, NY; Mike LaPorte, of Houston, Texas; Nick Leugers, of Mobile, Ala.; Patrick McCrae, of Halifax, Nova Scotia.; and Matt Poulsen, of Calgary, Alberta.
Kapres said that Pepe is the first to hold the newly created position of Versatex commercial/architectural specialist. “John spent the last 25 years as a top sales person for Thermal Windows and Doors, of Murrysville, Penn., concentrating on selling commercial windows for large East Coast projects. He’ll be based in New Jersey, and will use his vast array of contacts in the architectural community to get VERSATEX products specified on commercial projects from Boston to Washington, D.C.”
“We’re thrilled to be able to attract such impressive sales talent, and to continue our investment in exposing more architects, builders and contractors to the advantages of VERSATEX PVC building materials,” Kapres said. “John and all of our MDS representatives are there to support our ever-expanding distributor and dealer network and, essentially, to pull through sales—thus ensuring growth for all of our distribution-channel partners.”
