Versatex Building Products, LLC, announced today the appointment of Evan M. Kaffenes, as Vice President and CFO. In the newly created position, Mr. Kaffenes will manage the company’s accounting and treasury functions as well as its human resources and information technology activities.
According to Versatex President and CEO, John Pace, Mr. Kaffenes joins Versatex after two years of successful service with Werner Co., in Greenville., Pa.

“Evan grew up in Aliquippa, Pa., where Versatex has its headquarters, and he sees the move as an opportunity not only to work with a very innovative and dynamic company, but also as a chance to return to his roots,” Mr. Pace said. “We’re looking forward to a long, productive relationship.”
