Binswanger Enterprises LLC, a Grey Mountain Partners portfolio company, has named Tim Curran as CEO. Curran replaces Norm Plotkin, who is transitioning to a role supporting other Grey Mountain Partners portfolio companies. Binswanger is a large full-service designer, retailer and installer of architectural glass and aluminum products within the construction, residential and automotive markets in the United States.
“I’m excited to join Binswanger’s industry-leading workforce,” Curran says. “Binswanger has a rich history and an excellent reputation in the glass installation business. I’m very pleased to have the opportunity to work with Binswanger’s management team, experienced employees, and suppliers to grow the business and continue serving our customer base across the commercial and specialty glass, auto glass, and residential glass end markets.”
Curran brings with him a 30-year track record of successfully managing and growing companies in a number of different industries, according to the company.
He was most recently the senior vice president of U.S. operations at G&K Services, a publicly-traded industry leader in the uniform and facility services business, operating through 39 production groups across the U.S.
“During Curran’s 11-year tenure with G&K, he successfully grew revenue and profitability while improving other key operational metrics,” according to the company’s statement.
Prior to G&K, Curran served in various leadership positions with ExpressBill, a division of WebMD Health Corp., Omnova Solutions and AlliedSignal Inc.
“Grey Mountain Partners is grateful for the leadership Norm has brought to Binswanger, which has resulted in growth, improved business fundamentals and greater quality of customer service,” says Will Pucillo on behalf of Grey Mountain Partners. “The hiring of Tim Curran is a very positive transition point for Binswanger. We’re excited to partner with such an accomplished executive to accelerate the growth of the business, both organically and through strategic acquisitions.”
