Sutton Named Product Manager for Value Added Products
PITTSBURGH, November 30, 2021 – Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass) announced that Daniel Sutton has been named product manager for value added products at Vitro Glass.
In this new role, Sutton will serve as a liaison between research & development, field teams and operations, in addition to customers and end-users. As a critical member of the product development team, Sutton will also coordinate product launches and rollout for Vitro's newest value added offerings, beginning with the launch of VacuMax™ Vacuum Insulating Glass (VIG).
The ultimate in thermal glazing, VacuMax™ VIG integrates with any traditional (and even non-traditional) glazing system to maximize insulation performance and deliver R-values of R-14 and higher. Tempered VacuMax™ VIG units can be used alone as nominal ¼-inch glass to replace monolithic (single-pane) glass without needing to replace the framing system, or as a substitute for the interior lite in any double- or triple-glazed insulating glass unit (IGU).
Sutton joined the Vitro commercial marketing group in 2017, providing project analysis, LEED® compliance documentation and customer support. In 2019, he became a national architectural manager and delivered product, technology and service solutions to architectural designers and other customers in commercial construction markets in the Great Lakes region.
“Dan's experience in the field, his sustainability background, and his past architectural experience make him a very valued member of the Marketing and Innovation team,” said Nathan McKenna, director, marketing & innovation, Vitro Architectural Glass. “He will be an excellent asset to our value added product team, especially as we prepare for additional product and technology launches in the coming year.”
Prior to joining Vitro, Sutton served as University Sustainability Officer for the Florida Institute of Technology. He is a registered LEED® Green Associate.
Sutton holds a Master of Business Administration in sustainable business from Duquesne University and a Bachelor of Architecture from the Pennsylvania State University.
