Mason Ogle has been promoted to Director of Sales for Awnings and Laminated Products where he will focus entirely on customer relations and product sales. This move will then allow LCI’s Scott McKinnon to spend more time focused on product management and product innovation.

“We’ve experienced nothing short of explosive growth within this division, and it’s helped us to realize the necessity of adapting the division’s management to stay ahead of the growth, and at the same time keep the same level of intensity and product focus that has fueled our growth to date,” LCI Vice President of Sales Andy Murray says.

Ogle graduated from Purdue University in 2003 where he studied Sales Management and has since accrued more than 14 years of experience in sales and sales management. Before joining LCI in January 2017, Ogle served as Vice President of Sales for a local manufacturing company.
