PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Nortek Inc. has announced the appointment of Mark DeVincent as group president of its Custom and Engineered Solutions (CES) segment. DeVincent replaces Eric Roberts, who resigned following a five-year career with Nortek.

Nortek’s Custom and Engineered Solutions segment encompasses a group of custom HVAC brands for commercial, industrial, and institutional applications. Its brands include: Governair, Huntair, Mammoth, Temtrol, Eaton-Williams, Venmar CES, and Ventrol air handling systems.

DeVincent joins Nortek with 22 years of experience in manufacturing operations and sales management.
