Business

Jeff Jackson, President and CEO of PGT Innovations, Inc. (NYSE: PGTI), a national brand and innovation leader in the fenestration and garage door industries, was recently named to Florida Trend’s Florida 500 list, an annual section that highlights Florida’s most influential business leaders. This is the second year that Jackson has been chosen for the highly selective guide. Spanning across 60 categories, the selection of the 500 executives was based on extensive contacts in regional business circles, hundreds of interviews, and months of research, culminating in a highly selective biographical guide to the people who really run Florida. The manufacturing category in the guide included 12 individuals. Jackson joined PGT Innovations in 2005 as the company’s Vice President and Chief Financial Officer and was instrumental in taking the PGT Innovations’ stock public through the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in 2016. In 2018, he was promoted to President and Chief Executive Officer of PGT Innovations, and since then, he has continued to focus on the company’s legacy of creating deep customer relationships and accelerating the innovation that PGT Innovations’ customers need and expect. Throughout his 18-year tenure with the company, he has continued to foster a culture that thrives on inventing, building, and delivering solutions to enhance people’s lives. Under Jackson’s leadership, the manufacturer has experienced significant growth, including acquiring five companies in four states over five years; expanding existing operations with two new facilities; and opening nine new retail stores in five states over three years. The acquisitions have successfully moved PGT Innovations into new market segments, distribution channels, geographic locations, and a new industry category, as well as added products to its portfolio, strengthened its supply chain for glass, and created relationships with new dealers. PGT Innovations achieved $1.5 billion in total sales over the last four quarters and is the largest manufacturer of impact resistant windows and doors in the U.S. It currently employs more than 5,500 team members across its family of brands.
