The entire Window World family thanks him for his commitment and dedication and wishes him all the best."
Following retirement from a 21-year career in sales, purchasing and management at Lowe's, Deem was enticed to return to work in 2004 by Window World's late CEO, Todd Whitworth. Charged with overseeing the company's sales strategy and operations, he was later named president in 2011, contributing significantly to Window World's steady growth and success over the past three years.
"Approaching the 20-year-mark, I'm confident Window World will continue to build on the remarkable success achieved thus far; keeping its commitment to the homeowner at the forefront," said Deem.
