Rockfon North America, part of ROCKWOOL Group, named Kirill Fedorovskiy as its new President, effective April 1. Fedorovskiy will assume the role from John Medio, who helped establish and drive the Rockfon brand in North America and successfully led the business to its current market position.

Medio is taking up a new challenge within ROCKWOOL Group after nearly 10 years as President of Rockfon North America. “It has been a pleasure to work within the ceiling market for so many years, making acquaintances and friends at many levels,” Medio said. “As I move onto a new challenge, I would like to thank all our customers for their support in establishing Rockfon in the marketplace. I’m excited to see where Kirill and the team are able to drive it in this next chapter of growth.”

Fedorovskiy brings with him 17 years of international experience within ROCKWOOL Group, holding positions in Russia, Denmark, the U.K. and most recently as ROCKWOOL Insulation’s Vice President of Finance for North America.

“Firstly, I’d like to thank John for his commitment and drive in establishing the Rockfon business in North America,” Fedorovskiy commented. “I take over at an exciting time for the business but also for the market. The focus on occupant health and well-being in schools, in hospitals and in the workplace has never been greater. Our stone wool ceiling products are ideally suited to meet this focus and challenge. I look forward to bringing my experience to the business, to the market and to continue to drive the growth of stone wool ceiling products.”
