Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
Edward Kilwien has been named Chief Operating Officer of Smart Sealed Insulation, a Chicago-based specialty contractor that has carved out a niche as a leading building performance and home comfort contractor. Most recently, Kilwien was a Division Manager for Masco Contractor Services, leading the locally branded SCE, Unlimited since 2005.
Kilwien, a Seattle native, has been in and around the Insulation and Building Performance Industry for over twenty-five years. “The opportunity to bring on an individual of Ed’s experience and character was something we couldn’t pass up,” said David Kirk, President and CEO of Smart Sealed. Kirk continued, “Ed has experience growing a company, building a brand and penetrating new markets and business segments; all things that we plan to do at Smart Sealed. He even engineered the sale of his successful Washington based insulation company to Service Partners; it’s a perfect fit for us.”
Now settled with his family in Chicago’s north suburbs, Kilwien sees a bright future at Smart Sealed. “When I left Masco, I started looking at a variety of opportunities. Within Building Performance in the Chicago market, Smart Sealed has the right team and vision. This is an evolving and growing industry; property owners, contractors and architects will need experts they can rely on to deliver a high quality product and great customer service. When you add in the work that Smart Sealed is doing with leading organizations like Conservation Services Group and Franklin Energy it's an even bigger opportunity. Quality and service are the two things I’ve focused on the most during my whole professional life and will continue to emphasize at Smart Sealed.”
Kilwien has enjoyed success in three very different corporate environments; a closely held private company, a Private-Equity owned company and a multi-billion dollar publicly held company. He says his attention to detail and customer satisfaction have been key factors. “Early in my career I learned the value of relationships and the satisfaction that comes from delivering solutions that fulfill customer needs.” He added, “I fully understand that any organization’s success comes from both individual and team contributions. I am very excited to help lead the Smart Sealed team.”
