The Next Chapter at Northwest Door

On August 1, Northwest Door was joined by their new President, Mr. Dirk Fell. He recently moved to Washington with his family and spent the month of August transitioning into his new role and working with former President Jeff Hohman to get up to speed on all aspects of the company. Dirk has a Master’s degree in mechanical engineering and has spent his last 13 years as the Managing Director for the Hörmann manufacturing facilities in Tianjin City and Beijing City, China.

Mr. Hohman said his farewells on September 3 and was presented with some parting gifts from Dirk Fell and Christoph Hörmann: A custom engraved Therma Elite hand sample commending him on his ten years of service, and the emblematic number ten jersey for the Bielefeld soccer team.

In his time at Northwest Door, Jeff led the company through the opening of many new distribution centers, development into new markets in more than 50 countries, and yearly profitability. Before he left, Jeff expressed his fortuitousness for his time with Northwest Door as well as his anticipation of spending more time with his family doing the activities they most enjoy.

As Northwest Door says farewell to Jeff and wishes him the very best in his next chapter, they look forward to the road ahead and the expertise Mr. Fell will bring to the company.
