Petersen promotes David Mercer to regional sales manager
Petersen has promoted David Mercer to Midwest Regional Sales Manager for its PAC-CLAD brand of architectural metal cladding systems. Mercer has assumed the role for Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas and Iowa.
Mercer has more than 30 years of experience in the building materials industry, having worked with multiple manufacturers in the architectural metals industry. He holds a degree in business and marketing from the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire.
“I’m thrilled to assume this role and excited to provide vision forward and take the lead for the new Midwest region at Petersen,” Mercer says.
“We’re excited that David is leading sales effort in the Midwest,” says Bob LaForge, national sales manager. “David has a vision for what needs to be done to serve our customers, and is driven to get it done.”
The Midwest region was created when the former, larger region was split. Mercer’s region will be serviced by Petersen’s manufacturing facility in Elk Grove Village, Ill.
When not working, Mercer is a fan of action sports, and enjoys mountain biking, running and golf. He also enjoys time with his wife, daughters and dog where they live in Minnesota.
