A company press release noted that Nordaune began working with Andersen in 2000, quickly established herself as a senior attorney and steadily climbing the ranks. Her most recent position was as vice president, general counsel and assistant corporate secretary.

“Andrea’s deep understanding of our industry, coupled with her exemplary judgment, make her the perfect person to lead our legal department,” said Chris Galvin, Andersen Corp. president and CEO. “I have no doubt that she will play a pivotal role in guiding and protecting our business interests as we continue to grow the business, expand employment opportunities, and support our local communities.”

In her new position, Nordaune reports directly to Galvin and is a member of the company’s executive committee. She is the first woman appointed to this executive-level position and she will oversee a team of over 25 professionals in the legal, audit and regulatory affairs departments.

Alongside her internal responsibilities at Andersen, Nordaune also serves as the company’s representative on the board of directors of the Window & Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) and is a member of WDMA’s executive committee. Through her board membership, she works to promote, protect and advance the use of high-performance, high-quality windows, doors and skylights through advocacy, education, standards and certification, to improve upon the industry as a whole, company officials said. She is also an active board member of the YMCA of the North, working to make system changes essential to address social injustices and inequities tailored to serve the needs of local communities.

Galvin shared his gratitude for Bernick’s invaluable contributions throughout his tenure.

“We thank Alan for his many years of service and wish him all the best in his well-deserved retirement,” he said. “His expertise and unwavering commitment have played a significant role in shaping our organization. Alan leaves behind a remarkable legacy, and we are grateful for the lasting impact he has made.”
