As part of its succession planning, Lippert Components Inc. has hired Frank Perna as vice president of operations for the company’s manufactured housing windows division.
Over the next twelve months, Perna will be succeeding Jim Chamberlain, who has served Kinro, LCI’s sister company, for over 17 years.
“Frank will assume the position immediately. Jim will stay on with the company for a year in an advisory role and will help oversee several high-level projects until his retirement,” said LCI President Scott Mereness in a press release.
Perna is a 25-year veteran of the vinyl and aluminum window industry, most recently working for Silver Line Building Products LLC, a division of Andersen Windows.
Perna holds a mechanical engineering degree from Penn State University and is a Six Sigma yellow belt. “I look forward to joining the LCI team and creating new, innovative products for the manufactured housing market,” said Perna.
