Palmer-Donavin names new VP of sales

Palmer-Donavin announced that it has named Matt Kaufman as its new vice president of sales. 

In the beginning of 2020, the company’s rebranding initiative brought Palmer-Donavin and Seal-Rite Door to one name, Palmer-Donavin. While there were several changes to customer-facing resources, the building materials division and door division continued to largely operate as two separate businesses.  

In the new year, the company will implement a plan to internally restructure from divisional to a more functional organization, eliminating redundancies, the company said.

To accomplish this, Kaufman will lead all regional sales managers who will in turn oversee representatives from both building materials and doors. 

“This change makes a lot of sense as we are a  customer-focused company,” said Matt Butzier, COO of Palmer-Donavin. “We have found that our dealers were looking for a single point of contact regardless of division; however, our sales managers were not equipped to service their needs. With this  realignment, our team will be more informed and will offer the level of customer service our dealers  should expect.” 

Matt Kaufman added, “We plan to leverage the strengths of each division to give our customers the absolute best solutions to help their businesses grow. We’ll improve the internal communication with not only customer service, but our outside sales representatives in the field.” 

Butzier added, "Matt Kaufman’s experience working in both the Door Division and the  Building Materials Division makes him the ideal candidate for this newly created position. His internal  and external relationships will be a tremendous asset as we transition to one company.” 

Based in Columbus, Ohio, Palmer-Donavin operates eight locations in the Midwest.
