Born in Germany, Florian has an extensive geographical and financial background, having held several executive leadership roles in Europe and the US. Additionally, he has building products experience having been CFO for a Maine based deck manufacturer. Most recently he served as the Director of Finance for Maine Technical Source, serving surveyors, engineers, and commercial contractors.

“Florian’s arrival expands the capacity of our senior executive team from two people to three. This is an intentional investment designed to support the continued growth and expansion of our company. Florian, Paul, and I are excited about our refined roles and the opportunity it creates to increase our focus on our employees, customers, and the future.” – Kevin Hancock
