GARLAND, Texas — Fortress Building Products has promoted long-time employee A.J. Jesiolowski to director, framing category. In his new role, Jesiolowski will be responsible for the brand strategy and product development of the framing family of products.
Jesiolowski has been the senior product manager of the decking and framing categories for the last three of his eight years with the company. Within that window of time, he introduced several products to market, including the industry’s first steel stair framing system, Fortress said. As the newly appointed director of the category, Jesiolowski will drive the planning, development and commercialization of the Fortress framing portfolio.
“A.J. is skilled at leading high-performing teams to success, and goes above and beyond to provide superior service to our Fortress customers,” said Toby Bostwick, VP of product and brand at Fortress. “Backed by his experience and passion for building products, A.J. will further cement Fortress framing as a proven solution for residential and commercial building professionals.”
Earlier this month, Fortress named Tom Leahy as director of 1-step sales.
