Interior Systems, Inc., Milwaukee, has named Tony Lutz as ISI’s new president and chief executive officer.
Lutz has nearly 20 years of experience working for ISI and brings significant expertise in operations, production, sales, marketing and strategic branding and design to his new position. Founder and former president and chief executive officer, Lindsey Bovinet, is actively continuing with the company as Chairman.
“Tony’s proven success in growing our business, combined with his vast industry knowledge, strong client relationships and his dedication to the company for the past 20 years made him the ideal and obvious choice for ISI’s next stage of leadership,” said Bovinet. “In his new role as chief executive, Tony will be responsible for growing ISI’s three core areas of business — restaurant, retail and education — by helping our clients create sustainable, affordable and scalable design experiences that consumers love and will remember. His results-oriented approach and ability to think strategically and creatively will play a pivotal role in further extending our successful track record of design innovation.”
Lutz began his career with ISI 20 years ago as a regional account executive in Philadelphia. From there, he became national sales manager, director of sales and marketing, vice president of restaurant and then executive vice president. Prior to ISI, Lutz worked in advertising at Bell Atlantic in Philadelphia.
“Over the past 20 years, I have been both humbled and proud to see ISI emerge as a worldwide leader in interior seating and décor due to the creative, bright and ambitious people we employ and our company’s ability to deliver exceptional interior design, concepting, branding, product manufacturing and product installation,” Lutz said. “We see tremendous, long-term growth potential in all three areas of our business and I look forward to taking the company to its next phase.”
