BAYPORT, MN -- Andersen Corporation, the leading manufacturer of windows and doors, today announced that it has named Dave Beeken president of the Silver Line Division, which Andersen acquired in 2006. Beeken takes on this new role following the departure of Silver Line President Paul Valle.

Beeken most recently served as the senior vice president of Doors and Accessories for the Andersen Division, one of three divisions of Andersen Corporation. Previously, he was the senior vice president and general manager of the Architectural Products Division, where he launched the new Andersen Architectural Collection and spear headed the integration of Eagle Windows and Doors into the Andersen business.
