Harvey Building Products announced today that it has hired Nick Longman to the newly-created position of President and Chief Operating Officer.
“Nick joins our team with an impressive 15-year record of success in leading businesses in a number of industries,” says Jim Barreira, CEO of Harvey Building Products. “With an extensive background in commercial processes, operations and strategy deployment, Nick is a customer-focused leader known for building highly-engaged teams.”
Barreira relates that the new position has been created at Harvey Building Products so that he can focus attention on new growth initiatives for the company. “Our recent acquisitions of Thermo-Tech Windows and Doors and Soft-Lite, LLC are great examples of the types of business opportunities we’re looking to explore,” says Barreira. “As a company we’re ready to expand our business segments and geographies. While I focus on those prospects, Nick will work directly with our customers, vendors and employees on our daily operations.”
Longman most recently served as Vice President and General Manager at several businesses for Colfax Corporation, a leading provider of fluid handling and welding solutions to several key industries in the United States and internationally. He’s worked in key positions at Danaher Corporation and Rexnord Corporation. He resides in Hopkinton, Mass. with his family and graduated with a B.A. in economics from Kenyon College in Ohio and his MBA from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.
