Performance Tools, 44Tools.com Reorganize

Oct 7, 2013

Performance Films Distributing and 44Tools.com, a retailer of window film installation tools based in Plain City, Ohio, will implement a new corporate realignment this month.

The new structure, effective Oct. 14, will place Dick Austin in the role of dealer development and retail sales manager for both Performance Films Distributing and 44Tools.com, while Jeff Dunn, a distribution operations specialist, will serve as operations manager for both companies.

“We are blessed with a great team and we strive continually to utilize each member to best serve our valued customers,” said Bo Ryan, president of 44Tools.com and Performance Films Distributing. “The realignment of Jeff and Dick allows their experience and deep talent to better serve our broad customer base.”

Austin brings 35 years of window film industry experience to his new role. He previously served as manager of retail operations and training at 44Tools.com since 2008. Austin’s experience also includes working as a manufacturer’s representative for both Madico and LLumar/Vista window films and owning tint shops in Florida and Kentucky.

Dunn has worked with Performance Films Distributing for nearly 10 years in various capacities, including working in sales before being promoted to general manager in 2007. Prior to joining Performance Films, Dunn worked with companies such as Abercrombie & Fitch, BLITZ Distribution (Tony Hawk) and D.N.A. Distribution (Alien Workshop/Habitat Skateboards), according to 44Tools.
