Kodiak names new co-presidents of Specialty Appliance business
John Dadderio and Blayne Patrick will oversee operations and sales at the Colorado-based appliances division.
Kodiak Building Partners has promoted John Dadderio and Blayne Patrick to the co-president positions at Specialty Appliance, based in Denver Colo.
Dadderio and Patrick fill the positions left by the promotions of Greg Ulvedal and Kirk Dryden who were recently named the co-presidents of the Interiors Group for Kodiak.
Patrick has 26 years of experience specifically in the appliance industry. Through his time in both manufacturing and retail with Sears, Montgomery Ward, Circuit City, and Dacor, he said that he observed and appreciated that all of the people he worked with shared the same goals and aspirations, no matter their backgrounds.
Patrick joined Specialty Appliance seven years ago and was a major player in the sales team's growth, Kodiak said.
Dadderio’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to own five different businesses before becoming affiliated with Specialty Appliance in 2004 as an independent contractor and ultimately being hired in 2014, prior to being acquired by Kodiak.
The new co-presidents do not plan on any major changes at Specialty Appliance under their direction. Patrick will focus more on the sales side, and Dadderio will spend his energy on operations, the company said.
