Kingspan Insulation LLC has welcomed Ryan Sullivan as its managing director in charge of operations for North America. Sullivan brings knowledge of the building and construction industry and will help to expand Kingspan Insulation LLC’s presence and portfolio in the market.
“Ryan is joining the Kingspan Insulation team in North America during a time of business expansion,“ says Peter Wilson, global divisional managing director for Kingspan’s Insulation division. “His experience will continue to lead the business toward reaching its goals.“
Sullivan has more than a decade of experience in building products. He has served as president of James Hardie Building Products in Chicago, where as a member of the global executive management team he directed the North American business and increased market share and profitability. Sullivan has a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, a Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering as well as an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh.
“This is an exciting opportunity to help establish this brand in a growing market. I’m passionate about the technology and Kingspan’s commitment to providing energy efficient solutions for tomorrow’s advanced buildings and homes,” notes Sullivan. “The recent U.S. launch of Kingspan’s performance insulation, Kooltherm, and the expansion of the GreenGuard XPS insulation line allow us to advance the business and continue to focus on building relationships with our channel partners and providing excellence in customer service.”
