December Employee Service Milestones

hall-bill_11-27-13December 16, 2016 marks Bill Hall’s 20-year anniversary with ARDEX Americas.  Bill began his career at ARDEX Americas in 1996 as a Sales Professional in the Upper Midwest market where he helped build a very successful territory with an avid following of customers and strong distribution.   While there have been many changes in his market and the industry over the years, Bill was able to consistently create growth. Bill is great at keeping ARDEX Americas and our message in front of our customers while being a fierce advocate for their needs.  In September of 2016, Bill made the transition to the position of Business Developer, ACMS and ARDIFLO, Midwest Region. Bill’s work ethic, technical proficiency, passion to win and deep understanding of the ARDEX sales cycle and process make him particularly suited for this assignment. In this role, Bill will continue to support the Midwest sales teams in their effort to promote these very important corporate initiatives and work along with the team members to secure projects.
pesce-johnDecember 18, 2016 marks John Pesce’s 10 year anniversary with ARDEX Americas.  John started as a Senior Formulation Chemist in 2006, reporting to Dr Terry Potter. Due to his breadth of experience he has taken ownership of many projects relating to many different technologies while working in this role. It has involved complex product development, particularly in the HENRY range. Over the last 10 years, John has overseen a huge number of successful product introductions and localizations at five different manufacturing facilities. Currently John is responsible for projects relating chiefly to levelers, thinsets and patches, their development, localization, troubleshooting and QC support.
ARDEX is grateful to Bill and John for their service. Both have had a large impact on the business over this time. Congrats on this significant milestone!
