RTI announces appointment of new CEO

RTI has announced that it has appointed Joe Roberts as its chief executive officer (CEO).

Taking over from interim CEO Mark Derus, who will now return to his role as chief financial officer, Roberts will lead the company through initiatives that expand the RTI control platform with unique solutions for its global residential and commercial customers. 

“We’re very fortunate to have Joe join us as CEO,” Derus said. “His passion for building a culture that consistently delivers exceptional service and innovative products makes him a perfect fit. Under Joe’s leadership, we look forward to expanding the business opportunities for our distribution partners around the world.”

Roberts’ history involves customer focus, product innovation and delivery, as well as being well-know in the industry for turning around Core Brands and re-establishing ELAN as a leading control brand. During his time at Core Brands and Nortek, he and his teams won multiple awards. 

With his previous experience, Roberts will accelerate innovation within the residential market, and position the company to expand its suite of solutions for the commercial market. 

“I am excited to join RTI, where the team shares my passion for our dealers,” said Roberts. “We have a strong foundation with nearly three decades of creative solutions for both residential and commercial integrators worldwide. I look forward to leading the team to build on this momentum.”
