National Gypsum promoted John Mixson to the position of VP sales and marketing. He succeeds Craig Weisbruch, who retires as senior VP of sales and marketing after 39 years.
“John Mixson and I have worked closely together over the past 15 years and whenever given an assignment, he has distinguished himself and addressed strategic challenges to the benefit of our customers and our company,” said National Gypsum Chairman, President and CEO Tom Nelson. “Throughout his distinguished career, Craig Weisbruch has been a highly effective leader who has made National Gypsum a better company by building a world-class sales and customer service organization and establishing outstanding relationships with our customers.”
Mixson began his career with National Gypsum in 1999 as director of strategic planning. In 2004, he assumed the role of southeast area sales manager and in 2008, accepted the leadership role for the company’s marketing and advertising functions. As director of marketing, Mixson led several strategic initiatives related to branding, field sales training, product development and sustainability and was instrumental in guiding National Gypsum’s new Purple branding campaign. He spent the last year as VP of sales, overseeing dealer sales and national accounts.
