Sales and marketing veteran Rick Brinton has been appointed as the general manager for the fence, rail and decking business at CertainTeed Corp. He will assume this leadership role in addition to his existing responsibility as the general manager for the company’s Restoration Millwork Exterior PVC Trim product line.
“During his 15-year tenure, Rick has shown tremendous ability to achieve market share goals, profitability and growth objectives for the company,” said Mark Rayfield, president for CertainTeed Siding Products Group. “In his new role, Rick will be committed to implementing a robust business strategy that meets the needs of our customers and supports the growth of our fence, rail and decking business.”
