Deceuninck North America Announces Upcoming Retirement of CEO Filip Geeraert

General News

Deceuninck North America has announced that its longtime president and CEO, Filip Geeraert, will retire from his position with the company, effective July 1, 2020.

A veteran of the window and door industry who orchestrated a period of substantial growth and development for the company during his tenure as CEO, Mr. Geeraert will serve as the Chairman of the Deceuninck North America board of directors following his departure.

Francis Van Eeckhout, chief executive officer of Deceuninck Group, the parent company of Deceuninck North America, said a global search for Mr. Geeraert’s replacement has been concluded, and a formal announcement will be made as soon as possible.

“We are excited to begin this next chapter in our Deceuninck story,” said Mr. Van Eeckhout. “Filip’s strong, steady hand as the leader of our North American operations for nearly a decade has produced verifiable results across the board for Deceuninck – in providing customer solutions, in product innovation and in greater market share. We now have a highly qualified successor in place to  assure our customers, employees and stakeholders that the future is bright.”

Mr. Geeraert engineered a period of sustained growth for Deceuninck North America in the wake of the unprecedented market pressures of the Great Recession. He and his team recorded a number of years marked by double digit growth for Deceuninck North America in its key markets.

Mr. Geeraert also oversaw the company’s $20 million Western expansion when the company opened a second manufacturing facility in Fernley, Nevada in 2016.

“This year marks my 20th year with Deceuninck North America, and without a doubt, it became my second home over the past two decades. My work has always energized me, and I am proud of what my team and I accomplished,” reflected Mr. Geeraert. “I was fortunate to have the opportunity to lead Deceuninck North America during a period of time that presented many opportunities, and we effectively capitalized on them to generate terrific returns. I have been blessed working with people who brought out the best in me. I am delighted to pass the leadership to a well-respected executive who has held positions in multiple continents, including the U.S. The future is indeed bright, and I look forward to sharing it with our customers, our employees and the Board in the years to come.”
