Rinnai America Corp. has announced that Frank Windsor has been promoted to president of the Peachtree City, Georgia-based company.
Windsor joined Rinnai as general manager in 2014 and was later promoted to chief operating officer in 2016.

With the future in mind, Windsor also established an innovation department in 2018 that combines engineering and product management teams and is responsible for developing product initiatives for existing and new markets.
“Rinnai has identified the North American market as a strategic growth vehicle for the global organization,” says Yuji Kondo, director and senior managing executive officer, general manager of Overseas Business Headquarters. “We have achieved significant milestones under Frank’s leadership and look forward to continuing to expand our presence in North America.”
