Vitro Architectural Glass has announced its new president will be Ricardo Maiz, succeeding Richard Beuke, who held the post since 2016.
Maiz began his career at Vitro S.A.B. de C.V., the parent company of Vitro Architectural Glass, in Mexico in 2000. Initially working as a strategic planning and business development associate, he was promoted to various positions over 18 years. Most recently, Maiz served as chief operating officer, a role in which he was responsible for operations, quality control, supply chain management, and sales and marketing for the company’s joint U.S. and Mexican operations.
“Ricardo has a history of proven success managing multiple businesses and functions throughout his career with our company,” said Adrian Sada Cueva, CEO of Vitro. “The architectural glass business is a critical part of our organization, and I have the utmost confidence in Ricardo’s ability to lead it into the future.”
Beuke will continue in his position through March 31 to support Maiz in his new role and transition to being a senior advisor with Vitro S.A.B. de C.V.
“It has been a privilege to be part of joining these two great companies. Working with Ricardo this past year gives me confidence in the future of the success of the organization we’ve built,” Beuke said. “The future looks very bright for both our company and our customers.”
