Wheatley-DeFrancesca-1000x1000Parksite, Inc., has announced Robert DeFrancesca, Senior Certified DuPont™ Tyvek® Commercial Building Specialist, as the recipient of the annual Parksite Specialist of the Year award. “This second annual award,” stated Craig Wheatley, Director of Market Development, “represents our commitment to education within the building industry and our own distinctive employee-owned culture. Originally created by the DuPont organization, the award recognizes an exceptional individual among all Specialists in the North American market. We wanted to take that same foundation and build upon it in our own organization and recognize and honor individuals for their efforts, sales performance, and extraordinary relationships in our network and industry.”

DeFrancesca, a Parksite associate based out of our Apex, NC location, stated upon receiving the award, “I came into the Tyvek® Specialist role with little Weatherization knowledge and in seven years, I’m humbled by the significant building science education I’ve obtained. Both Parksite and DuPont have provided me considerable opportunities to challenge myself and provide our industry with a qualified building resource.”
