BEAMSVILLE, Jan. 24, 2023 – Dörken is pleased to announce that Marcus Jablonka has been appointed President & CEO of Dörken Systems Inc. In his new role, Jablonka will lead and bring fresh perspectives to the company’s strategy, as well as plans for sustainable growth and profitable revenue generation.
“I feel privileged to work with a competent and experienced management team at Dörken Systems,” says Jablonka, “and I look forward to growing the organization to the next level and helping the construction industry to improve the performance of buildings with our product solutions.”
Jablonka brings a wealth of experience to the role, with almost 25 years of dedication at Dörken Systems. A hands-on leader with an engineering and business background, Jablonka is highly knowledgeable in manufacturing, marketing, product management, applied building science, and advanced building products and technologies.
For the past six years as Vice President Operations & Marketing, Jablonka’s core focus was on developing and implementing new production technologies through the rapid expansion of Dörken Systems’ North American operations, which nearly doubled during that time. Simultaneously, he worked with his team to develop a leading-edge digital marketing program for the construction industry, which received the Hanley Wood Brand Builder Gold Award for Best Use of Data Driven Marketing. Outside of his work with Dörken Systems, he is also an Executive Committee Member of the Rainscreen Association in North America (RAiNA).
