Petersen [] has promoted its Southeast Regional Manager Mike Weis to Vice President, Sales and Marketing, effective Oct. 1. The promotion precedes the planned retirement of President Mike Petersen in the new year.

Weis’ promotion is part of an effort to integrate all Carlisle Construction Materials brands, including Petersen and its PAC-CLAD architectural metal products, into its organizational structure. Similar organizational changes are taking effect within other Carlisle brands as part of Carlisle’s Vision 2025 plan, which includes a goal of investing in and developing exceptional talent.

Weis began his career at Petersen in 1999 as Southeast Sales Manager and advanced to become Southeast Regional Manager in 2014. Prior to joining Petersen, Weis was a Sales Manager at Reynolds Metals Co. for five years.

“It’s humbling in many ways to be given this opportunity,” Weis says. “I have had the good fortune to learn from the best, namely Mike Petersen, John Palesny and Tom Bell. To have always had their support and guidance over the past 20-plus years has meant everything to me.”

“It was a logical decision to promote Mike (Weis) to this leadership role,” says Mike Petersen. “He has been demonstrating effective leadership skills since he came to Petersen more than 20 years ago, while helping to grow PAC-CLAD’s brand recognition in the Southeast to an unprecedented level. Mike (Weis) will do an excellent job leading Petersen into the future.”

Nick Shears, President, Carlisle Construction Materials, explains the decision to promote Weis: “Mike Weis has been chosen due to his extensive and successful leadership experience with Petersen. He will be a key figure in the continued geographic expansion of Petersen which, along with Drexel Metals, will remain an independent brand as part of the Carlisle Architectural Metals group.” MR
