Viracon reorganized its architectural design team with the addition of Jennifer Highfield, architectural design specialist; and the promotions of Marni Windschitl, architectural design associate, and Alissa  Schmidt, technical resources manager, according to an Oct. 4 company release.

Highfield comes to Viracon with a 15-year background in interior design, including running her own interior design business. While at Viracon, she will work closely with architects and designers in all Viracon markets, according to the release.

Windschitl has been with Viracon since 2004, first as a member of the inside sales team, and for the past 18 months as a specialist in the architectural design department. She will now have the increased responsibility of meeting with architects in their offices to provide education regarding the Viracon product portfolio and consulting with architects on project specific glass selection, according to the release. 

Schmidt has been with Viracon since 2005, first as a specialist in the architectural design department, and most recently as manager of the department. In her new role, Schmidt is responsible for managing Viracon’s architectural design and technical services departments with a specific focus on effective utilization of the team members as well as process improvements, according to the release. 

“I felt it was the right time to implement an organizational structure that takes advantage of the synergies of both departments and enhances the capabilities and services we provide to our customers,” said Rick Voelker, vice president of technical services, in the release.
