The new Chief Financial Officer for Pella Corporation has worked for a major U.S. auto maker.
David Smart is the new Chief Financial Officer for the company that makes windows and doors which bear the brand name “Pella.” According to a news release from the Pella Corporation, Smart spent the past two decades with the Ford Motor Company, most recently as the Chief Financial Officer of Ford’s operations in Australia. He also once served as a key California-based manager for Ford’s Jaguar and Land Rover Group.
The Rolscreen Company was founded in Pella in 1925 and in 1992 its name was changed to the Pella Corporation. Pella wood windows and doors are manufactured at plants in Pella, Carroll, Shenandoah, Sioux Center and Macomb, Illinois. The Pella Corporation has manufacturing plants in five other states that manufacture vinyl windows and doors.
The Pella plant in Story City was closed last spring. It now is used for storage.
