PGT Industries Appoints Jeff Jackson As New President And Chief Operating Officer

N. VENICE, Fla., May 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PGT, Inc. (Nasdaq:PGTI), the nation's leading manufacturer and supplier of residential impact-resistant windows and doors, announced this week that its Board of Directors has appointed Jeff Jackson, President and Chief Operation Officer, effective June 1, 2014. Mr. Jackson, 48, succeeds Rod Hershberger, 57, who will remain in his roles as Chairman of the PGT Industries Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

"I am proud and excited that Jeff will succeed me as PGT's President. This move supports our decision to make changes in the executive leadership team as part of our long-term organizational strategy and aligns us for the many significant growth opportunities ahead," said Rod Hershberger, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors. "In Jeff we have found a President of diverse ability that is deeply committed to our tradition of leadership and core values - customer intimacy, quality, family, community and integrity – all of which he has clearly demonstrated during his 9 year tenure with PGT. Jeff has played a pivotal role in successfully leading PGT through the worst housing downturn in our history and is now directing our team through the recovery ensuring steady and stable growth. He has extensive experience and an engaging leadership style that relies heavily on collaboration and partnership. I believe he is an excellent leader for our organization with grassroots sensibilities, and we are very pleased that he emerged from within PGT's own pool of talent."

Mr. Jackson, who currently serves as executive vice president and chief financial officer, joined PGT in November 2005 and helped lead the Company's IPO in 2006. Mr. Jackson is responsible for all aspects of the Company's operations from Supply Chain to Manufacturing and is PGT's Chief Financial Officer. Prior to joining PGT, he served in various Executive Management roles, including Division Chief Financial Officer, Vice President Corporate Controller, and Senior Vice President of Operations. Mr. Jackson earned a B.B.A. from the University of West Georgia and is a Certified Public Accountant in both Georgia and California.
