OAKVILLE, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 4, 2014) - OpenAire Inc., the world's premier designer, manufacturer and installer of custom retractable roof enclosures and operable skylights, announced today that Corey Boland has joined its executive team as Chief Operating Officer.

He intends to continue and broaden OpenAire's success as the world-leader in large-scale, one-of-a-kind, luxury retractable roofs for the waterpark, restaurant, cruise, shopping mall, recreational facility and upscale residential markets. Immediate steps will include enhancements to internal teams and processes, in addition to a focus on expanding the company's global footprint.

"The sky is the limit for OpenAire's international expansion plans, particularly in countries like Russia and the UAE," Boland says. Referring to his immediate priorities, he says, "I will focus on developing an extremely disciplined internal approach to new design technology and will nurture a culture of continuous improvement. Our team is already tremendously talented, and I intend to strengthen it even further through some strategic hires."

His tenure at CompX spanned 11 years, and for the latter 5 years he held the post of President, where he was responsible for the P&L of CFC facilities in Canada, the US and Asia.
