Fortress promotes Tim Sandlund to director of marketing

GARLAND, Texas — Fortress Building Products has promoted Tim Sandlund to director of marketing. A digital marketing leader in the building products industry with more than 13 years of experience, Sandlund will be responsible for developing strategic marketing and channel sales initiatives for Fortress.

Sandlund joined the Fortress team as channel marketing manager in the fall of 2020 and played an integral role in the development and execution of Fortress’ most successful marketing initiatives to date, the company says, including revamping its contractor preferred program, expanding distributor/dealer programs, and launching the nationwide Fortress Total Solution Tour. In his new role, Sandlund will support the continued expansion of multiple product categories and lead the digital transformation of business development initiatives.

“Having known Tim for nearly a decade and seen all he’s accomplished in his career, I couldn’t think of a more qualified candidate to lead Fortress’ marketing initiatives — especially during a time where digital adoption has become one of the most important strategies for reaching customers in today’s evolving landscape,” said Toby Bostwick, VP of Product & Brand. “As Fortress continues to expand its product offerings, Tim’s proven track record in building products – paired with his passion for technology and innovation—will be essential for increasing market share and global expansion of the Fortress brand.”

When it comes to social media, the building industry as a whole has been fairly slow to recognize the impact of this effective marketing tool. Findings and best practices show that one of the best ways to connect with your B2B or B2C audience is through meeting them where they’re at—social media.

“It’s an exciting time to be a part of the Fortress team, especially following last year’s incredible success—establishing a brand presence and aggressive growth initiatives wouldn’t have been possible without the innovative approach and mindset that drives our team,” said Sandlund. “The building products industry is ripe for digital transformation, and I’m looking forward to building upon the incredible work happening at Fortress.”

Prior to joining Fortress, Sandlund served as the digital marketing manager for Derby Building Products where he was directly responsible for increasing lead generation by developing digital platforms.
