BY HBSDEALER Staff

Johnson City, Tenn.-based General Shale named Charles Smith as CEO of the company, the North American subsidiary of Wienerberger, a manufacture of brick.

Smith is a 22-year veteran of General Shale and he previously served as president and COO. He succeeds Richard L. Green, who retired April 1.

"Charles has helped steer General Shale’s operations through a major economic downturn, and he played an instrumental role in revitalizing the company’s product development," said Heimo Scheuch, CEO of Wienerberger.

General Shale operates manufacturing facilities in nine states and provinces, and 31 distribution centers across the country.
