Dennis Hirschfeld (pictured above), former vice chairman and CEO of world-renowned structural steel manufacturer Hirschfeld Industries, has joined Redsmith Graphic Solutions as chairman.
Hirschfeld Industries, founded in 1946, is one of the largest fully integrated fabricators of highly engineered structural steel in North America. Signature projects under the tutelage of Hirschfeld include: Minute Maid Park, home of World Series champion the Houston Astros; SunTrust Park, home of the Atlanta Braves; Texas A&M University’s Kyle Field; and the Hudson River’s Tappan Zee Bridge. Chicago’s Soldier Field, the Google Headquarters in San Jose, along with airports, bridges, Las Vegas hotels and NFL stadiums across the U.S are among several other notable projects Hirschfeld Industries is known for.
“We welcome Dennis to the Redsmith family and believe his extensive experience in taking on prestigious, complex and demanding projects will help us navigate our growth with a steady hand,” says Hatch Cummings Smith Jr, CEO of Redsmith Graphic Solutions.
Hirschfeld brings a long history of working in the bridge and fabricated steel markets. Prior to his roles as vice chairman and CEO for Hirschfeld Industries, he served as the company’s CFO overseeing finance and acquisitions, facilitating rapid growth for the family business. “What I see is the intersection of my private equity experience for the past 12 years with a family-owned business to marry those insights to bear with Redsmtih,” Hirschfeld says. “I am looking forward to using that and my 40-year experience in steel fabrication to help monitor, guide and direct the company to more opportunities in the future.”
“Dennis’s demonstrated capability and skill within the structural, industrial and nuclear sectors as well as logistics, design and project management are well aligned with Redsmith’s vision for facilitating the design and production of large-scale events.” Smith adds.
Redsmith Graphic Solutions is a large-format printer and exhibit producer based in San Antonio, Texas, and serving clients worldwide. The company’s broad capabilities encompass a full array of large-scale event needs including design, logistics, production, fabrication, installation and project management.
