Window Coverings Industry Insider Joins the HomeRun Holdings Management Team

Ben Kutell has been named business director, residential products, for the QMotion™ division of HomeRun Holdings™ Corporation, effective immediately. Kutell was the vice president of sales and marketing for Vertilux Ltd.

“Ben will make an outstanding addition to our management team and the development of our new QMotion Shade division,” said Gordon J. Wuthrich, the chief operating officer of HomeRun Holdings. “He has a track record of success in the window covering industry, and the experience we need to help build our brand while developing an appropriate distribution network.”

Kutell began his career in the retail home furnishings industry in 1991, where he developed effective training programs in customer relations, sales qualifications and closing techniques that resulted in substantial increases in profitability and inventory control. He further honed his skills in marketing, product development, sales, relationship building and training methodology in positions with Chase Federal Bank and Mayrsohn International Co., Inc., before joining Vertilux Ltd., 14 years ago.

“The engineers at HomeRun Holdings have developed some of the coolest technology I’ve seen in this industry in over a decade,” commented Kutell. “It’s exciting to become a part of it. The pre-launch buzz about QMotion has been amazing. There’s every indication that QMotion’s clean, crisp aesthetic and whisper-quiet mechanism will raise the bar within the industry for quality motorized shades for years to come.” Kutell will continue to work out of Miami, FL.

HomeRun Holdings Corporation, based in Pensacola, Florida, offers a broad assortment of home controls, garage door openers, access systems, motorized window shades and storm protection products. Emanuel Mullet founded the company, formerly known as the Wayne-Dalton Corporation, in the 1950s.
