ATLANTA- AERT, a division of Oldcastle APG, has announced the addition of Todd Braun as the company’s vice president-sales overseeing the company’s national sales network and international business interests. In his role, Braun will be responsible for both sales operations, key customer relations and direct channel sales strategies for the company’s expanding distributor network and retail partner relationships.
Braun is an industry veteran with 12-years category experience with James Hardie Building Products. He held multiple roles within James Hardie servicing multiple markets throughout the U.S.
“Innovation is the blueprint for our organization’s future success. To properly deliver this vision- while driving bottom line results- we sought a sales professional that could bring equally innovative solutions to our sales infrastructure,” AERT president Rich Lankester said. “Todd brings a wealth of expertise to our organization learned from an industry leader in the cladding marketplace that built their respective category. From marketing-sales alignment to data integration for better enablement, Todd has the right skill set and leadership qualities to help forge a new path for AERT.”

“AERT has a clear differentiator in this category- that is our product. Already in my short tenure, multiple customers have reiterated our value proposition and that we deliver what we claim in terms of performance. If our product delivers performance and value, it’s my role to align our troops with data-driven insight so we can deliver the needed support and education to drive sales,” Braun said. “It’s a challenge, no doubt, but one I’m excited to tackle along with my team.”
