Big news — we’ve made several promotions to key Long Fence and Home executives.
Meet the people steering our company into a new and exciting year:
Dave Normandin, Long Fence and Home President
Dave, formerly our chief operating officer, is now our company president. He helped oversee tremendous company growth as our COO — gross annual sales have more than tripled over the past four years. A resident of Rockville, Maryland, Dave has 30 years of home improvement industry experience. He was the executive vice president for NEWPRO in Woburn, Mass. until 2011.
John Avramidis, Vice President of Production
John “Yanni” Avramidis is our new vice president of production. He joined our company in 2011 and was most recently the director of the roofing division. Yanni is a Master Shingle Applicator, a title he earned through roofing material manufacturer CertainTeed.
He and his family are residents of Severn, Md.
Mike Bell, Director of Operations
Mike is now our director of operations. He was previously installation manager and is now responsible for the overall flow of the work in all markets.
Mike oversees the entire customer service department, collecting customer feedback and ensuring client satisfaction. His job is to ensure a delightful experience for all customers. Mike and his family are at home in Halethorpe, Md.
Jeff Caron, Vice President of Sales
Jeff, formerly Long Fence and Home’s general sales manager, is now vice president of sales. He joined Long Fence and Home in 2016 after serving as director of sales for Next Step Living in Boston for three years.
Jeff spent 28 years at NEWPRO in Woburn, Mass., leaving as the vice president of sales. He currently resides in Rockville.
“I am really excited to assemble this team as we continue our company vision to become the homeowner’s choice for pro roofing,” says John DePaola, CEO of Long Fence and Home. “These gentlemen have shown their commitment to our customers. That is first and foremost to anything else we do. We now have the staff assembled to assure 100 percent customer satisfaction in this market and beyond.”
National growth for Long Roofing
The promotions coincide with major developments. Long Roofing — one of several brands under our Long Fence and Home umbrella — opened a new office in Charlotte, North Carolina in the final months of 2016. We plan to expand into three more cities in 2017.
The expansion marks our first push outside of the Washington, D.C. metro area.
“The growth of the company is a credit to John DePaola’s vision to create a national roofing company,” Dave says. “We put a plan together, executed and we’ve never looked back. We’re already one of the biggest customers of CertainTeed roofing products. It’s our goal to be the largest residential roofing company in the country.”
