I am also grateful to be able to leverage Bill’s invaluable expertise as he continues on as a board member.”

Dierberger added: “After 15 years in leadership roles at Skyline, I care deeply about the people, customers, and dealers who have helped build the company over the past two decades. Anthony understands the culture and quality that has driven our success and strong customer relationships, and I am confident that he will make a great CEO.”

Skyline Displays is a portfolio company of Gemspring Capital, a Westport, Connecticut-based private equity firm.
