President, CEO replaces Humphrey
BAYPORT — Andersen Corp. President and CEO Jay Lund was appointed chairman of the company’s board of directors, the company announced today.
Lund, who was named Andersen president and CEO in March 2011, replaces current board Chairman Jim Humphrey, who officially retires Feb. 22, 2013, from his board role as part of a planned transition.
Humphrey joined Andersen in 1999, served as president and CEO from 2003 to 2011 and was named chairman of the board in February 2008. He joined Andersen after a 31-year career at Armstrong World Industries.
“Under Jim’s leadership, Andersen grew its national footprint and expanded its portfolio across all price points, and types of window and doors,” said lead Director Jack Morrison said.
Lund joined Andersen in 1985 and has served in a series of progressively responsible positions in information technology, marketing, sales, distribution, logistics and general management. He became the company’s 10th president in September 2009, and became CEO when Humphrey retired from the company in April 2011.
Lund is a member of the Andersen Corp. Foundation Board of Directors and sits on the boards of St. Olaf College, the Harvard Joint Center for Housing, The Itasca Project and the GREATER MSP Regional Economic Development.
“Jay’s contributions and accomplishments over the last 27 years have been instrumental to the growth of Andersen,” Humphrey said. “We look forward to Jay taking on this additional role as chairman.”
“I am honored to take on the additional responsibility of Andersen’s board chair. It is a privilege to work with a strong board and to build on our industry leadership position,” Lund said
Privately held, Andersen Corp.’s 12-member board consists of eight independent directors, two family members and two members of senior management.
