McKinney, Texas-based RV shade supplier MCD Innovations announced the appointment of Matthew A. Taylor as president. According to a press release, Taylor will be responsible for directing and controlling the company and all day-to-day operations.
“I am very enthused with the potential I see at MCD,” Taylor said. “Facilitating and directing the explosive growth I foresee in the RV and commercial markets as well as looking at possible acquisitions or mergers will be quite exciting.”
Taylor brings extensive operating experience having worked in large multinational companies, family run businesses and private equity ventures, including Deloitte Consulting and as president and CEO of Medco Sports Medicine, Resource Satellite and Scrip Cos.
Dave Townsley, founder of MCD, has chosen to limit his daily involvement and time in the office to focus on providing input and counsel to Taylor on new products, innovations and developments, and market strategies going forward.
“I am extremely pleased to have found someone of Matt’s caliber to lead MCD into the future and help take the company to the next level,” Townsley said. “He will be a tremendous asset to the company. My family and I have enjoyed taking MCD from its very humble beginnings in 2003 and growing it to where it has now become North America’s largest roller shade manufacturer.
He added, “I believe the future of our company is very bright indeed. We expect to experience phenomenal growth in 2014 due not only to our dominance of the recovering/growing RV market but also due to the success of our commercial shade division in landing contracts with such clients as Dunkin Donuts, Baskin Robbins, Staples, Advanced Auto Parts, and others.”
