Linetec promoted Jeff A. Fochs, Jr. to vice president of sales and marketing. He reports directly to Linetec's president, Jon Close, who previously held this position.
In his new role, Fochs will oversee Linetec's national outside sales, inside sales and marketing teams. For now, he also will continue to serve as the East Central regional sales manager.
Since joining Linetec in 2012, Fochs has led the East-Central territory to significant growth by developing long-term customer relationships across nine states, adding value and expanding services, according to company officials. Among his accomplishments, he was instrumental in successfully implementing Linetec's flat sheet program. This full-service program provides flat sheet aluminum in any quantity and in any choice of anodize finish or paint color, including custom matches, micas and metallics.
Fochs works in close collaboration with Linetec's production staff to ensure company meets customer quality and timeline expectations. Benefitting both customers and colleagues, Fochs also has served as a facilitator for Linetec's Kaizen program and regularly teams with his fellow associates on continuous improvement projects.
Drawing from more than 20 years of experience, Fochs has gained an in-depth understanding of architectural metal building products and services. Prior to joining Linetec, he worked as a territory manager for Vicwest Inc., a manufacturer of exterior metal building products. He previously was employed by a Seattle-based design/build firm with sales and design responsibilities.
His career path also includes territory management positions with a window manufacturer, building materials providers and contractors headquartered in Wisconsin.
