AUSTELL, Ga. (May 11, 2018) – YKK AP America Inc. today announced the expansion of its Southeast team with the addition of Architectural Sales Representative, Wesley Grubb. Grubb joins the Atlanta branch, reporting to Ken James, and will cover architectural sales in the state of Alabama and the Florida Panhandle.
Drawing on 25 years of success within the building supply industry, Grubb’s expertise centers on building strong relationships with architects and glazing contractors through a consultative, solution-based approach.
