After joining Pella last fall on a consulting assignment, I assumed the role of President in 2021. I am a Finance professional by training, but have spent the last dozen or so years in operational leadership roles. My industry background is diverse, including Oil & Gas, Construction, Aviation, Consumer Products and Manufacturing. While this certainly provided different work experiences, a common theme I’ve learned is to treat people fairly and things usually work out pretty well.
Away from work, I am in leadership roles on two local non-profit boards, Ronald McDonald House Charities and Music Theatre Wichita, and find both organizations to be very rewarding. My wife, Adrienne, and I are proud parents of two grown children and enjoy travel, laughing at our dog and cat, and watching classic movies. Adrienne is originally from New Jersey and I am a native Texan, but we have been in Wichita for almost two decades and really love the quality of life we experience here in Kansas.
