The National Association of the Remodeling Industry named Fred Ulreich as its chief executive officer. Previously, Ulreich was the NARI’s director of business development and national membership.
Ulreich will focus on guiding the NARI’s board of directors, staff, chapters, members and partners toward achieving the objectives established within the NARI’s 2020 plan, which includes growing membership and revenue through the year 2020.
“Through our national search we were presented with many highly qualified candidates for the position,” NARI chairman Art Donnelly said in a statement. “Fred, while his qualifications were impeccable, also brings with him a unique talent for building highly effective teams and a contagious enthusiasm for achievement and growth. NARI stands on a very solid foundation today and is poised for growth as our industry rebounds and expands on the heels of this past recession. Fred was chosen because the committee saw him as the right individual, at the right time for all the right reasons."
Ulreich replaces Mary Busey Harris, who was NARI’s previous executive vice president.
