Bellingham, Wash.-based Wood Stone Corporation announced changes to its leadership team as well as new representation in four states this week.

The changes include roles for both Michael Quinn, vice president of global sales,  and Tamra Nelson, vice president of strategic marketing. The company also hired Fred Gapasin as vice president of operations & engineering.

As vice president of global sales, Quinn’s role will expand to include the inside sales function at the stone-hearth maker. Quinn has been with Wood Stone for one year and has over 20 years of experience with manufacturing companies (sales, business development, strategy, quality), the company said.

Nelson, a 15-year veteran of the company, expands her responsibilities as the vice president of strategic marketing and will be responsible for “the development of insights and fueling a customer-led growth agenda for Wood Stone’s products and parts,” according to the company.

Gapasin, previously the senior vice president and general manager at Altair Advanced Industries, will be focused on “creating synergies and developing new processes among the operations, engineering, supply chain and quality teams.”
