Viega LLC names new CEO
September 4, 2013
In October 2013, Viega‘s vice president of sales Dave Garlow will assume the roles of CEO and president. Dan Schmierer, who has led the company since its founding in 1999, will retire in December 2013. “Dave Garlow’s 14 years with Viega LLC in sales and marketing make him an ideal candidate to become president and CEO,” said Schmierer. “He brings a very strong customer focus to the role and understands where our customers are coming from. He’s well prepared to step up to this new role as CEO.” Garlow graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in mechanical engineering in 1986 and completed his MBA from the Katz School of Business in 2001. The Viega Group manufactures and distributes plumbing, heating and pipe joining systems.
