Alcoa Building and Construction Systems officials announced that Donnie Hunter has been named architectural manager for North America. In his new position, Hunter will lead a team responsible for the promotion of the Kawneer, Traco and Reynobond brands to the architectural community, according to a July 17 Aloca release.
Hunter began his career with Alcoa in 1983 as a sales trainee for Kawneer for the southern region working in the Jonesboro, Ga., manufacturing facility. From 1984 through 2001, he held various sales positions and was responsible for architectural promotion and customer sales in the southern region.
