Trained as an engineer and schooled as an MBA, Butch Reimer, president of Tru Cabinetry, will bring his unique perspective on managing a kitchen cabinet business when he addresses the 2019 Executive Briefing Conference. The top-level management event runs April 14-16 at the San Jose Marriott.
Reimer became president of Ashland, Alabama-based Tru Cabinetry five years ago, when it was acquired by United Cabinet Technologies, a unit of equity firm Building Industry Partners. Since then, Reimer has used his focused, process-driven leadership style to re-position the brand, attain sales growth in excess of 100 percent and achieve strong operational performance. These results were achieved through his implementation of new management philosophies, development of sound and innovative manufacturing processes, and successfully rebuilding the product line.
Reimer brings something of an engineer's approach to all aspects of the business, including sales, as he will explain at EBC 2019. He has a mechanical engineering degree from Ohio State University, and took his MBA from Ashland University.
