MEDFORD, Wis.—The Weather Shield Mfg., Inc. board of directors announced the immediate appointments of Mark Schield as president and Kevin Schield as executive vice president of the company. They succeed their father, Edward “Lee” Schield, who founded the company 60 years ago. Lee will continue to serve on the board of directors and be active with marketing and purchasing matters.
As president, Mark will be responsible for leading the company’s strategic direction and financial objectives, and meeting the needs of customers, employees and the communities where the company does business.
“Our priority will be the continued focus of exceeding our customers’ expectations for quality, innovation and service,” Mark says. “Weather Shield looks forward to a bright future, ensuring ways to maintain our truly unique, long-standing position in the marketplace.”
Kevin Schield, as executive vice president, will direct the company’s daily operations to maximize performance, ensure healthy working environments and surpass customers’ expectations.
“By leveraging Weather Shield’s strengths – quality products, a dedicated customer network, and a dependable and resolute workforce – we have emerged from the worst economic downturn in the housing industry since the Great Depression,” Lee said, in announcing the leadership change to employees. “Many companies did not come through the eight-year decline intact or financially sound. I take this opportunity to sincerely thank all who have worked hard to make this remarkable accomplishment possible.”
