Nic Neumann brings a diverse background in the luxury architecture and design industry to his new position as CEO of North America, Canada and The Caribbean Islands of Sky-Frame, Inc., the Swiss company known for state-of-the-art sliding glass door and window systems. He joined Sky-Frame three years ago as COO, and is now based in its new U.S. headquarters in Culver City, California.
Known for its sophisticated technology and versatility, cutting-edge architects around the world, including Sir Norman Foster, Steven Ehrlich, Hagy Belzberg and Shubin Donaldson, have incorporated Sky-Frame’s large glass elements into many of their residential and commercial projects, including the new Pivot door; highly curved and angular glass doors; and aluminum sliding glass door systems that can be motorized and contain a self-cleaning track that disappears quietly into the pockets of the home.
“I’m excited to be leading and overseeing the strategic direction of the company, including regional growth, along with new innovative products, market expansion, leadership initiatives, and further development of the company culture,” Neumann says. “I’m committed to building on the superior system of Sky-Frame and providing top-tier solutions to our discerning clients.”
Prior to joining Sky-Frame, Neumann served as CEO, Mafi-America; VP, Bulthaup Corporation; and National Operations Manager of USM U. Schaerer Sons in the U.S. He was also the force behind the development of several architecturally significant projects in the U.S., including the Revel Entertainment complex in Atlantic City and Gensler Architecture’s new HQ entry in Los Angeles. From 2003 to 2010, Neumann owned an architecture, design and construction firm with luxury residential and commercial projects in Europe and the U.S.
Born and educated in Germany, Neumann received a university degree in architecture and design, followed by a second degree in business management and finance. His passion for modernism, Bauhaus philosophy, and immaculate open living spaces, combined with his international savvy and experience working with the discerning design community, make for a perfect fit with Sky-Frame.
