YKK AP America Announces Retirement of Mark Richards

April 16th, 2018 by Editor

Mark Richards, general manager of YKK AP America’s Northeast Region, retired earlier this month. Baltimore branch manager Derick Clutchey will assume leadership of the Northeast region.

Richards joined YKK AP America in 2006 as manager for the Boston branch. He soon took over the Baltimore branch as well. YKK AP America says Richards has continually strived for excellence in every endeavor and empowered those around him to seek the same.

“Mark will be greatly missed. He has served as an integral member of our sales leadership team for the past several years, and his commitment to excellence has been a tremendous asset to YKK AP. We wish him the very best as he moves on to this next phase of life,” said Mike Turner, senior vice president of sales and marketing at YKK AP America. “Mark built an incredible foundation for future success in the Northeast region. We are thrilled to see Derick step into this role, and continue to build YKK AP’s brand presence and sales within the Northeast region.”

Since 2016, when Clutchey joined the company, Richards mentored and supported him as he expanded his building products background to include the fenestration industry. In 2017, the Baltimore branch was recognized as “Branch of the Year” for excellence in sales and customer service.
