C.R. Laurence Expands Leadership Team with Three Promotions

CRL appoints three new Vice Presidents across sales, engineering, and production to improve service and help drive profitable growth   C.R.

Laurence (CRL), the leading manufacturer of architectural glazing systems, tools, and supplies, announced the expansion of their executive team with the promotions of Chris Hanstad, Bojan Komadina, and Armando Rodriquez to the position of Vice President.

Chris Hanstad, V.P. of Architectural Sales

Most recently, Hanstad served as Brand Manager of CRL's Architectural Railings brand, where he personally oversaw the development of the first and only glass railing system to be approved by the International Code Council (ICC). He also served as a key player managing CRL's North American expansion projects including new and revamped service centers in South Carolina, New Jersey, and Texas. In his new position, Hanstad will leverage his project management experience and thorough working knowledge of the construction project delivery process to facilitate project efficiencies for architects and stakeholders.

Bojan Komadina, V.P. of Engineering

Komadina lead the early development and expansion of C.R. Laurence Engineering, from a small group of engineers to a highly trained team of over 50 engineers, architects, draftsmen, and support personnel that have enabled the company to evolve from a limited product distributor to a premier manufacturer of bespoke hardware solutions for the glazing industry. Komadina also helped with the implementation of a Design Group distinct from the Production Group, which will allow former V.P. of Engineering Gary Sprague to focus on the imperative role of designing and developing new solutions for customers as the new V.P. of Design.

Armando Rodriguez, V.P. of Production

Joining C.R. Laurence almost 10 years ago in a Technical Sales capacity for the Architectural Metals brand, Rodriguez became instrumental in production management for this critical CRL product line. His demonstrated potential and skill set saw him manage production initiatives and duties with great energy and impact, making his transition into a Vice President role a natural step for C.R. Laurence.

"As C.R. Laurence continues to grow, it is essential that we strengthen our leadership foundation to maintain the same reputation for quality service and innovative products," says Lloyd Talbert, President of C.R. Laurence. "We are proud to have Chris, Bojan, and Armando continue with the company in these elevated positions and know they will play a critical role in our continued success."
