David Engelhardt, President Gypsum North America, has decided to retire as of January 1, 2018 after 13 years with Saint-Gobain. I would like to warmly thank Dave for his professionalism, leadership and dedication to Gypsum North America, CertainTeed, and Saint-Gobain.
Mark RAYFIELD will assume the role of President Gypsum U.S., in addition to his role of Region CEO Saint-Gobain Construction Products for North America and President and CEO of CertainTeed. Dave’s direct reports in the U.S. will begin reporting to Mark effective January 1, 2018. Matt WALKER will continue to lead the Gypsum business in Canada as part of his responsibilities as Chief Executive Officer of CertainTeed Canada.
Growth and success of the US Gypsum business is a critical component of the strategy for Construction Products in North America. Mark’s role as President for Gypsum U.S. will allow him to build a focused plan for transformation and long-term growth of the business.
Please join me in thanking Dave for his service to the Company and in wishing him well in his future endeavors.
