WESTBOROUGH, MASS. — Raven Products is pleased to announce that Mark J. D’Agostino has been appointed president and CEO, effective March 1, 2014.

“Six months ago Raven Products made one of the smartest business decisions in more than 30 years of existence by hiring Mark D'agostino, former president of Wilo, USA," said Michael Pelletz, COO of Raven Products. “With Mark’s incredibly vast knowledge of our industry, we have never been in a better position for whatever the future throws at us.

Mark has tremendous experience in senior management positions and has such a passion for our great company we are sure to thrive for many years to come. People always ask how to describe Mark so here I go. Mark is the Babe Ruth of the plumbing and heating industry. He hits a home run every time he is challenged. Simple as that.”

“I am very excited to take on this next career challenge,” said D’Agostino. “Raven Products and the Pelletz family have done such a great job of building this company and I look forward to carrying on that tradition of excellence.”

Raven Products also recently appointed Christy Nicholson as administrative coordinator.

“Christy and I have a long and productive work history together," said D'Agostino. "Her knowledge of our industry and our customers is second to none. Christy is organized, professional and a joy to work with. In this role she will become the 'informational hub' for all of our operations. It is a role she is ideally suited for, and I am thrilled to have her on my team.”

“I am excited for this new challenge at Raven Products and to work with Mark," said Nicholson. "This is a great opportunity and I look forward to adding my skills to an already successful team.”
