Sto Corp., the innovative world leader in full system facades, prefabrication, air barriers, coatings, and restoration solutions, announced today that Jose R. Berlingeri has been named President and Chief Executive Officer, Sto Americas. The move became effective January 1, 2020, and followed the December 31 retirement of longtime president and CEO David Boivin.
Berlingeri brings to the role a wealth of industry experience both inside and outside of the Sto organization. After having served in senior leadership positions of organizations in related industries, Berlingeri joined Sto Corp. in 2010 as General Manager, Latin America. The new role was created to facilitate international expansion in Latin American countries. During his tenure as GM, Berlingeri was successful in expanding Sto’s footprint in several markets.
“The choice to succeed me was easy,” said Boivin. “Jose built a business in LATAM for Sto from nothing, and showed he was willing to get very granular in how to work with a young, diverse team and provide the leadership and maturity to allow them to run their companies independently. Jose knows Sto culture, its products and its people intimately, and has fantastic leadership instincts.”
Boivin has led the company’s successful growth in North and South America, and the creation of Sto Panel Technology during his tenure. Boivin will continue the collaboration with Sto as an independent consultant to Sto Panel Technology, Sto’s division dedicated to insulated, prefabricated wall panels.
Sto is an international technology leader in the design and production of innovative building materials tailored to human needs. Our wall systems, coatings and finishes have been the choice of leading architects, engineers and contractors for 61 years, and we are the world’s largest manufacturer of exterior thermal insulation systems, with 35 subsidiaries, more than 5000 employees, and 21 factories operating around the globe.
Sto Corp., based in Atlanta, Georgia, produces a broad range of advanced cladding, air moisture barrier and coating systems that deliver energy efficiency and superior aesthetics for building construction, maintenance, and restoration. Sto Corp’s plants are ISO certified for environmental protection and quality control and are strategically located to serve more than 200 distributor shipping locations throughout North and South America. Sto Corp. is committed to developing next-generation building solutions, and the company’s employees are advocates for technical mastery in pursuit of a sustainable built environment.
