The VELUX Group, Hørsholm, Denmark, announced Group North America, a new organizational structure for the U.S. and Canada, naming Timothy Miller CEO. Miller, who has led Fort Mill, S.C.-based VELUX America LLC since 2000, will oversee residential and commercial sales and production for the U.S. and Canada.
John Pillman, president and CEO since 1996 at Greenwood, S.C.-based VELUX Greenwood LLC, the company’s U.S. manufacturing arm, is retiring.
“I extend gratitude and appreciation to [Pillman] for his extensive contributions to the growth and success of VELUX and wish him happiness in his retirement,” said David Briggs, CEO at the VELUX Group. “Creating a single operational management team for North America builds on the 2018 acquisition of Wasco Products, and positions VELUX for growth and leadership in the residential and commercial skylight segments in the United States and Canada.”
