Jerry Burris has resigned from his role as CEO and director of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio-based Associated Materials to pursue other interests.
"I have enjoyed my time at AMI and am proud that our team's accomplishments have positioned the company for a strong future," said Mr. Burris. "As a shareholder of AMI, I look forward to following its continued success over the coming years."
The company's board of directors is currently in the process of seeking a replacement. In the meantime, current director and former CEO Dana Snyder will serve as interim CEO.
"We are thankful for Jerry's significant contributions to AMI during his tenure as chief executive," said chairman Erik Ragatz. "Under Jerry's leadership, AMI has made significant progress toward our strategic imperatives, including enhancing our customers' experience and positioning the company for sustainable long-term growth. We wish Jerry the best in the next phase of his career."
