PGT Innovations announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Jeff Jackson to become Chief Executive Officer, effective January 1, 2018. Rod Hershberger, who is retiring as CEO, will continue to serve as the Chairman of the Board of Directors.

“It has been an honor to lead PGT Innovations for the past 37 years, and I am grateful for the tremendous support I have received from our team members and customers over the years,” said PGT Innovations Chairman and CEO, Rod Hershberger.

“Consistent with our succession planning, we've promoted from within a demonstrated leader at a time when PGT Innovations is in a strong position,” Hershberger continued.

“Jeff has the ability to translate vision and strategy into industry-leading execution, bringing together brands, products, and teams to drive results. As a twelve-year veteran with the Company, Jeff already understands all aspects of our business and will move the Company forward to capitalize on the opportunities in front of us. He is a champion of the PGT Innovations culture and has a proven ability to inspire, energize, and connect with our team members, customers, and partners.”

Mr. Jackson joined PGT Innovations in November 2005 as Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. In 2006, Mr. Jackson helped lead the Company's IPO and was later named Executive Vice President.

In June 2014, Mr. Jackson became President and Chief Operating Officer, a position in which his responsibilities included overseeing all aspects of the Company’s operations and strategic direction. In 2016, Mr. Jackson was appointed to the Board of Directors.

“I am humbled and excited by the opportunity to lead PGT Innovations. I look forward to continuing to work with our team and valued customers to build upon the solid foundation that Rod created and to realize the opportunities we have going forward,” said Jackson. “I am focused on continuing our legacy of deep customer relationships and accelerating the innovation and execution that our customers need and expect from us.”

Commenting on the transition, Floyd Sherman, an independent director on the PGT Innovations Board and CEO of Builders FirstSource, Inc. said, “Our Board of Directors has had the opportunity to watch Jeff grow as a leader at PGT Innovations over the past twelve years and we believe there is no better leader to take the Company into the future. Jeff has demonstrated the ability to connect vision, people, and ideas to drive strategy, execution, and results. With Rod continuing in his role as Chairman and Jeff taking the role of CEO, the Board is confident PGT Innovations has the leadership that will continue to drive its success for many years.”
