MBCI Leadership Update
Since 1976, MBCI has partnered with our customers to deliver high-quality products, backed by meaningful relationships. We work together every day with our customers, employees and industry partners to create buildings where our communities live, work and play. And over time, it’s about more than the manufacturing of metal components, and about a bond that unites us—the excitement of winning a large project, the struggle of weather delays, and the uncertainty of the market. Many of our employees have watched our customers’ children grow up and we beam with pride as they take over the family business, reminded that what we have built is longer-lasting than any tangible product.
It’s a great achievement to successfully lead an organization aligned with our values of meaningful relationships, trust and responsiveness, expertise and high performance. Thus, it is with the utmost respect and deepest appreciation that I must announce the bittersweet separation of Joel Viechnicki from the company.
Joel began his career with American Building Components (ABC) as a Regional Manager in 1993 and has held various sales leadership roles over the last 27 years at Cornerstone Buildings Brands. Joel’s commitment to his team and customers has aided in the growth of the business, and his leadership is recognized across the industry.
Kelly Huntsman, Director of Sales, will assume the day-to-day sales responsibilities for leading MBCI. Kelly has been with the company for 26 years in various roles across manufacturing and sales, most recently as Key Account Manager for MBCI. He served on the Utah Roofing Contractors Association for 10 years and currently sits on the board of the National Frame Building Association. He holds a bachelor’s in business management from Western Governors University.
Even under new sales leadership, our before-mentioned values will not waver. Our customers can expect the same relationship-based service as before, the best-possible solutions and high-quality products. We understand our customers’ needs, and through our trusted partnerships, you can rely us to ensure the success of your projects.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Kelly or myself.
President, Buildings & Components
