Washington, DC – The Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) new board was installed at the WDMA Board of Directors meeting on February 26. Steve Tourek of Marvin was elected the association’s 2021-2023 chair, succeeding outgoing Chair Bob Lewis of Masonite International Corporation. It is Tourek’s second time in the role.
“When I was last elected to serve as Board Chair, our industry was facing the most difficult challenge imaginable: The Great Housing Recession,” says Tourek. Today, as we begin to emerge from the shadow of COVID-19, our industry’s challenges are much different but nonetheless demanding: safely satisfying the increased demand for high quality, high performance windows and doors amidst the broader need for housing that is affordable.”
Tourek is Marvin’s senior vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary. Marvin is a fourth-generation family-owned and -operated business, headquartered in Warroad, MN, with more than 6,000 employees across 16 cities in North America. The Marvin portfolio of products for builders, architects and homeowners is designed to provide exceptional solutions for any project. Marvin has recently launched two innovative, award-winning product solutions, the Marvin Skycove and the Marvin Awaken Skylight, designed to enhance light, air and views in the home.
In addition to Tourek, the other members of the 2021-2022 WDMA Executive Committee are:
• Vice Chair/Treasurer: Emily Videtto, Pella Corporation, Pella, IA
• Executive Committee Door Representative: Fenton Challgren, Therma-Tru Doors, Maumee, OH
• Executive Committee Window Representative: Jeff DeLonay, Kolbe Windows & Doors, Wausau, WI
• Executive Committee Supplier Representative: Dave Pinder, Cardinal Glass Industries, Eden Prairie, MN
• Immediate Past Chair: Bob Lewis, Masonite International, Tampa, FL
The Window & Door Manufacturers Association defines the standards of excellence in the residential and commercial window, door and skylight industry and advances these standards among industry members. The association had its origin in 1927 with the formation of the National Door Manufacturers Association. In 1985, its name was changed to the National Wood Window & Door Association to provide an even better awareness of the products manufactured by its members. In 1998, the name was changed again to the Window and Door Manufacturers Association reflecting the increasing diversity of manufacturing materials.
