The 47 employee-owners of Salem announced the appointment of Michael Willard as the company’s new president. Willard brings 25 years of glass sales management experience, the last 11 years as Salem’s national sales manager and executive vice president (EVP) to his new position.

As EVP, Willard directed 23 field sales people located throughout the United States and Canada and managed the company’s strategic diversification throughout the past decade. According to the announcement his efforts as a member of the management team were instrumental in successfully steering Salem’s transition from a privately owned company to a 100-percent employee owned company.

As president, Willard will focus on nurturing the ESOP ownership culture to harness the internal resourcefulness and energy unique to an employee-owned company in expanding existing markets, developing new markets as well as new products. Willard believes the commitment of individual employee owners is vital to maximizing the opportunities of the company for its future success.
