Sometimes you just know when it’s right. And that’s how we feel – underscored, all caps – about Pete Varevice joining Glass+Metal Craft at the beginning of this quarter.
Pete is serving us in a new position for G+MC, as our Architectural Sales Director. It’s a new strategic position that will help us to continue to strengthen our relationship with architects, as well as our glazier partners. (Despite his title, one of Pete’s primary responsibilities will be working with glazing contractors in the Northeastern U.S. for custom applications.)
Why are we so excited? Pete brings a lot to the table.
First, he’s got top-shelf experience, coming to us as a former director with a leading architectural glass fabricator in North America. Pete’s depth of knowledge will help us accelerate our plans to bring a portfolio of pre-engineered architectural systems to the industry in the coming months.
Second, Pete’s from the East Coast, knows the region very well, and will remain there to bring a strong new presence for us within easy reach of key metropolitan areas. In all, Pete has served successfully for 20-plus years in sales, project management, and cost estimation for commercial glass and metal systems. He’s a real resource when it comes to vetting a spec, and getting everyone – architect, contractor, and glazier – all on the same page at the onset of a glass and metal fabrication project. Another addition to our customer service in that region.
Third, Pete’s just a great guy. What’s makes him stand out is his ability to truly hear what you have to say, understand the challenges, and then articulate a solid response. I recently described him as almost being “professorial.” Think back on the teachers that engaged you … that’s Pete.
There’s a lot of road ahead for Pete as he buckles into his journey at Glass+Metal Craft, but I can assure you this. As you work with him going forward, you too will know we did this right.
