Both have been hired to replace their recently retired predecessors and will be working closely with Tubelite customers and architects to provide assistance with storefront, curtainwall, entrance and daylighting systems. Peters replaces Steve Seeling in serving clients in Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri. Townsend assumes the responsibilities of Don Walker for clients in Oklahoma and northern Texas.
Peters joins Tubelite following nine years of owning and operating his own business as an independent sales representative serving EFCO’s customers in Oklahoma and Kansas. He began his career in 1989 with EFCO as a field service technician and progressed to become a field service manager.
To gain additional industry knowledge, Peters left EFCO after 13 years and accepted a position with a glazing contractor in Ohio where he led their service division. He transitioned to Vistawall Architectural Products (now Oldcastle Building Envelope) to become the company’s sales representative in Ohio, before starting his own firm.
Townsend draws from more than three decades of experience in the commercial glazing and architectural products industries, as well as a lifetime of connections in Texas. He most recently worked as a Wausau Window and Wall Systems’ Texas-based architectural sales representative.
Prior to joining Wausau, he held the position of national sales director of Columbia Commercial Building Products in Rockwall, Texas. Previous positions include working as an estimating manager and as a senior project manager for Vistawall Architectural, as vice president of field operations at Alco Glass in Mesquite, Texas; and as a project foreman at Haley-Greer, Inc.
