Vice President at Quanex Building Products
July 19, 2010
Quanex Building Products Corp. announced today that August (Gus)
J. Coppola was promoted to senior vice president of Quanex Building
Products, reporting to David D. Petratis, chairman and chief executive
officer. Coppola was formerly the president of the company's Truseal
business. In his new role, Coppola's key responsibility will be
to serve as the champion of Quanex's Project Nexus initiative.
Project Nexus is a sales growth initiative formally launched by
Quanex earlier this year. The initiative calls for the integration
of its Engineered Products Group (EPG) sales, marketing and product
development teams. Coppola and his EPG team will be focused on customer
needs, and the team will be bringing more product solutions to current
customers while reaching out to new customers.
"Gus brings the essential experience, background and management
philosophy necessary to champion this strategic initiative,"
said Petratis. "I believe Gus' energy, years of experience
in the industry and management skills suit our needs perfectly."
Quanex also announced that David Marlar was promoted to general
manager at Truseal, and will assume most of Coppola's former responsibilities.
Pete Donoghue was also promoted to vice president sales - EPG. Donoghue
will be working with Coppola to further refine the structure of
the EPG sales and marketing organization.
