Robin Thompson Joins Petersen As Pacific Northwest Sales Manager

Elk Grove Village, IL - Petersen announces that Robin Thompson is now the Pacific Northwest Regional Sales Manager for its PAC-CLAD brand of architectural metal cladding systems. Thompson assumes the role effective immediately for Idaho, Oregon, Montana, Washington, Northern California, Wyoming, Utah and Alaska.

Thompson has years of experience in the building materials industry, most recently with Insulfoam as the regional sales director for the West Coast. Prior to this, Thompson was the west coast regional sales director for a decorative surfaces manufacturer. She carries a degree in political science from Central Washington University.

“I’m excited to accept this challenge and I look forward to helping architects and installers be successful and grow their businesses by using PAC-CLAD systems,” Thompson said. “Our customers’ growth will reinforce their confidence in the PAC-CLAD brand as it expands within the Pacific Northwest.”

“We’re excited that Robin is on our team,” said Bob LaForge, national sales manager. “Her experience and energy will help our customers in the Pacific Northwest grow their familiarity with architectural metal, as well as expand the PAC-CLAD brand as a go-to source for trusted building materials.”

The Pacific Northwest region was created when the West region was split. Thompson’s region will be serviced by Petersen’s manufacturing facility in Bonney Lake, Wash.
