JELD-WEN appoints Antonella Franzen to board of directors

JELD-WEN Holding, Inc., a global manufacturer of building products, announced the appointment of Antonella B. Franzen to its board of directors, effective March 1, 2024. Franzen will replace Suzanne Stefany, a JELD-WEN director since 2017, who notified the board of her decision to not stand for reelection.

“Antonella brings extensive expertise in finance, strategic development and cultural transformation for large multinational companies, and we are pleased to welcome her to the board,” said David Nord, JELD-WEN’s board chair. “As JELD-WEN strengthens the foundation of its business and continues to take steps to unlock more value for all shareholders, Antonella’s extensive background in the industrial sector will be a tremendous asset for the company.”

Franzen is currently the chief financial officer for Dupont’s Water & Protection segment, a $6 billion global business with more than 30 manufacturing plants. Before joining DuPont, Franzen served at Johnson Controls International plc, a global leader in building products and smart, healthy and sustainable buildings, serving as the vice president, chief investor relations and communications officer, from 2018 to 2022. Prior to the merger of Tyco International plc with Johnson Controls in 2016, she held various roles of increasing responsibility at Tyco from 2004 to 2016, including leading investor relations, corporate finance and external reporting. She began her career with PwC (formerly PricewaterhouseCoopers) providing assurance advisory services to large multinational public companies in the industrial and pharmaceutical sectors. Franzen earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the College of New Jersey and is a certified public accountant.
