SEAL BEACH, CA - Custom Building Products, a manufacturer of tile installation products, has announced the appointment of Mark Longfellow to director of marketing/market development, a position which was newly created. In his new role, Longfellow will oversee the strategic development of the company's backerboard, adhesive and grout product lines, including branding, positioning in the marketplace and new product launches.

"Mark has made a significant contribution to our business that has enhanced and strengthened our leadership in tile installation products," said John McMullen, senior vice president marketing of Custom Building Products.

I am committed to driving the corporate strategy and maintaining our focus on the development of key products and quality service."
