Tom Krebs Announced as New EVP Sales & Marketing
We are delighted to announce that Tom Krebs will be returning to IHP January 22 as our executive vice president for Sales and Marketing. Many of you know Tom and his career with Lennox Hearth Products, and with IHP during our first three years. Tom’s return gives us a solid, knowledgeable, and experienced executive to drive our business forward that requires no adaption or learning curve for our customers or market.
Tom joined LHP in 2001 when Lennox Industries was struggling with the consolidation of the five companies they acquired. That experience, along with the contacts and credibility Tom developed during this time in the hearth industry, will help Tom and the Sales Team accelerate our future sales growth, new product development, and market position. Tom’s experience with our sales team will also bode well for rapid planning and revenue improvements.
Glenn Thomson Announced as New VP Strategy & Planning
With the return of Tom Krebs, Glenn Thomson will now pick up an important role for us at IHP – VP for Strategy & Planning, supporting our efforts to rebuild the IHP brand and tradition of innovation. Glenn’s experience working with Tom dates back to the LHP & FMI 2012 merger, and beyond. This long-standing relationship combined with Glenn’s industry and company experience will help speed up our recovery in the marketplace, as well as realizing fast capture on sales opportunities we are pursuing.
