The Velux Group announces Group North America, a new organizational structure for the United States and Canada, naming Timothy B. Miller as CEO. Miller, who has led Velux America LLC since 2000, will oversee residential and commercial sales and production for the United States and Canada. John W. Pillman, president and CEO the company’s U.S. manufacturing arm since 1996, will retire effective Dec. 31, 2019.
