In his most recent position as Vice President of North American Operations, Quint was responsible for managing the full scope of manufacturing activities, achieving a successful operational turnaround during the challenges of the global economic downturn.
"The company's leadership team has done a tremendous job in recent years to strengthen the business amid a challenging economy and struggling building industry," shared Adamson. "Mitch has been an integral part of our success, and we're excited to have him at the helm as we look to expand and gain market share."
Adamson added, "By aligning our resources globally with the opportunities we see for growing our business, we're positioning the company to execute an aggressive growth agenda."
"It's an exciting time for Formica Corporation as we continue to build on our legacy in the architecture and design community while also exploring new markets," Quint said. "We'll soon launch VIVIX™, our first exterior product, and we continue to pioneer innovative technologies in the design and manufacture of Formica® Laminate, Formica® Solid Surfacing and DecoMetal® offerings."
Before joining Formica Corporation, Quint was principal at Booz Allen Hamilton, a leading strategy and technology consulting firm.
