Samuel Chastain Tapped For Key Leadership Role At Facades United
Austell, GA – Facades United, a designer and supplier of fully-engineered rainscreen systems for high-performance exterior claddings, announces the appointment of Samuel Chastain to Director of Business Development. In this role, Chastain will use his extensive industry knowledge and global business relationships to position the company for strategic growth.
This news follows the recent announcement of the company’s launch in February 2018. Facades United has taken a unique approach to service the North American market by designing engineered attachment systems that can be used to install a variety of different types of cladding. Typically, the responsibilities for attaching multiple types of systems would be split between any number of companies and potentially require coordination between parties on different continents.
In recent years though, facades have become less dominated by a single material, as newer design trends now dictate that multiple materials come together to express a singular idea. Facades United’s attachment systems allow for traditionally different materials to integrate into a singular system or series of compatible systems to offer designers the freedom to bring their unique vision to life.
“Facades United fills a unique need in the market by being able to bring together numerous high-performance wall cladding products. We are now able to deliver quality products that have either lacked suitable installation solutions for the North American market or the means to effectively provide installers with technical support and pricing to successfully pursue projects,” said Chastain.
Chastain is a 23-year veteran of the metal composite cladding industry. Prior to this announcement, he has served in upper and middle management positions for various metal composite material manufactures, both in North America and abroad.
He received his Undergraduate Degree in Industrial Engineering Technology from Southern Polytechnic State University, and his Master’s Degree in International Business from the University of South Carolina. He speaks multiple languages including Spanish, Portuguese, and French. Using his international business and global commerce experience, Chastain will also focus on bringing new manufacturers and materials to the North American market.
“I am excited about this opportunity to bring traditionally European products and integrate them with tested solutions for the North American market, which are backed by solid engineering,” said Chastain. “We will be able to provide European manufacturers with compatible solutions, enabling them to get to market much more quickly,” he added.
