Boehne, Redmond in new jobs; Evanich retires
BAYPORT — Andersen Corp. today announced the promotions of Holly Boehne to chief technology officer and Jerry Redmond to president of its Andersen Division.
The changes are part of an organizational realignment following the planned retirement of Senior Vice
President and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Craig Evanich, company officials said.
Boehne joined Andersen in September 2004 as senior vice president of research, development and innovation. Her experience spans engineering, product development and commercialization, operations and lean management. In her new role, Boehne adds responsibility for supply chain services.
Prior to joining Andersen, Boehne served in leadership roles at Ecolab and Pillsbury. Boehne earned her bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from the University of Minnesota.
“There is a natural alignment between our research develop and innovation and supply chain services areas,” said Jay Lund, Andersen Corp. chairman, president and CEO Jay Lund. “Holly’s leadership will create an integrated supplier strategy that combines our technology direction with our supplier capacity.”
Lund praised Evanich’s work with Andersen as the veteran sales and marketing officers leaves the company.
“After 13 years with Andersen, Craig will be missed. He successfully transformed Renewal by Andersen from a concept to an industry leader in window replacement. He set the direction for the business, built a talented team, and created a strong company-owned and affiliate network,” Lund said. “Then he took on an additional challenge with our traditional business along with sales and marketing, where he’s made a significant impact.”
Andersen will now be comprised of three divisions: Andersen, Silver Line and Renewal by Andersen. The Andersen Division includes its architectural collection, storm doors and Andersen wood clad and composite windows and patio doors. This change brings a stronger focus and accountability to the company’s three main businesses.
Redmond joined Andersen in 2007 as senior vice president of operations and supply chain management with responsibility for manufacturing, order management, logistics and procurement. Since then, he has integrated the supply chain, driven the Andersen management system into manufacturing, and improved safety, quality and customer service.
Prior to Andersen, Redmond led Whirlpool Corp.’s business in Mexico as its general director and as general manager in Canada. Redmond earned his bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering at Mississippi State University in Starkville, Miss., and a master’s of business administration from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.
“Jerry’s extensive knowledge and expertise make him the ideal leader for our new Andersen Division and he has been instrumental in helping us to successfully manage through the recession,” said Lund.
