The Window & Door Manufacturers Association has announced that it has named John R. Stoiber as its new president and SmithBucklin as its full-service management company, effective April 1.

The association will relocate from its current headquarters in Des Plaines, Ill., to SmithBucklin’s offices in Chicago.

”We believe this move to be a natural one at this stage in our development,” says Rick Kon, WDMA Board chairperson. “It will allow our leaders to focus their energies and expertise on strategy, objectives, member value and strategic alliances. I am confident that SmithBucklin’s people, as well as its unparalleled expertise and breadth of resources will help us expand our reach and allow us to provide best-in-class programs and services to our members and the industry. We are also pleased to welcome John Stoiber to WDMA and are excited about his combination of technical and leadership expertise.”

Stoiber holds two bachelor’s degrees and a master’s degree in engineering from Marquette University. He also holds a master’s degree in business administration from Northwestern University’s J.L. Kellogg School of Management in strategy and finance and is a certified management accountant. In addition to having founded and served as the chief executive officer of six companies, Stoiber spent seven years with Johnson Controls in product and sales engineering roles focused on building and construction solutions and technology related to energy efficiency, life safety, security and fire protection.

“WDMA is a unique organization with significant growth potential,” said Stoiber. “As the recognized leader in standards and product performance certification for the window and door industry, I am excited to have the opportunity to work with WDMA’s board of directors to create value for our member companies.”

WDMA announced last September that its former president, Joel Hoiland, had left the association to pursue other opportunities.
