The RiteScreen Co. LLC, a manufacturer of window and patio door screens in North America, has hired Chris Yankowich to the company as chief executive officer and a member of its board of directors.
Yankowich joins RiteScreen with a background in strategic, commercial and operational leadership in the building products industry, having most recently served as chief executive officer of Dreamline, a shower enclosure company in North America.
“I am thrilled to be joining RiteScreen at such a pivotal moment for the company and the screen manufacturing sector,” said Yankowich. “COVID lockdowns have generated a significant and lasting increase in consumer demand as attention shifted to home renovation. At the same time, builders continue to respond to a shortage of housing in the United States with increased construction of new homes. Now, headwinds caused by the supply chain crisis and labor shortage are clarifying the value of outsourcing screen manufacturing for window and door providers. RiteScreen is in an ideal position to meet this demand and provide the industry with innovative solutions and timely fulfillment.”
“Chris is a valued addition to the RiteScreen executive team and board of directors,” said Tom Burchill, managing partner of Seven Point Equity Partners LLC, which owns RiteScreen. “He brings outstanding leadership qualities, deep industry experience, a strong track record of operational excellence, and a passion for delivering outstanding customer value. RiteScreen has grown faster than the overall market on a consistent basis, but the company has many avenues of additional growth available to it and Chris is the right leader to maximize its market opportunity.”
“RiteScreen’s customers range from the largest and most sophisticated window companies in the United States to regional, custom window manufacturers, all of whom have extremely high expectations with respect to quality, design, customer service, and on-time delivery,” said Seven Point partner Mark Kammert. “Chris brings the right balance of deep commercial and operational experience to help the company consistently deliver exceptional customer outcomes.”
