ELKHART, Ind. - Wood component giant Patrick Industries has named Jeffrey Rodino as its new president.
Rodino most recently served as executive vice president and chief sales officer for the manufacturer.
The company says former president Andy Nemeth will continue in the chief executive officer role.
"Patrick continues to experience tremendous growth along with opportunities for both strategic and organic expansion, and Jeff has provided exceptional strategic and organizational leadership during his tenure with Patrick," said Nemeth. "Jeff has established proven and highly-respected credibility within our organization and our primary end markets, helping to drive the execution of our vision and our organizational strategic agenda. Jeff's new role recognizes his many contributions to Patrick's success and at the same time reflects the evolution and increasing size and scale of our Company, which has grown to more than $3.4 billion in annualized sales today."
Rodino has more than 27 years of experience in the recreational vehicle, marine, manufactured housing, and industrial markets. He also served as Patrick’s chief operating officer from 2013 to 2016.
The appointment comes at a time of tremendous growth for Patrick. We've written quite a bit about its recent acquisitions. The company has acquired more than 25 companies over the past few years. Just last May it acquired Indiana's Alpha Systems. It also recently announced a new 60,000-square-foot Indiana plant.
Patrick is a major manufacturer and distributor of component products and building products serving the recreational vehicle, marine, manufactured housing, residential housing, high-rise, hospitality, kitchen cabinet, office and household furniture, fixtures and commercial furnishings, and other industrial markets. Patrick's major manufactured products include decorative vinyl and paper laminated panels, countertops, fabricated aluminum products, wrapped profile mouldings, slide-out trim and fascia, cabinet doors and components, and hardwood furniture.
The company has more than 170 operations across 20 states, Canada, China, and the Netherlands - employing more than 9,500.
