Omnia Exterior Solutions, a portfolio company of CCMP Growth Advisors, announced at the end of last month that it had named Jeffery Kizilbash as the company’s new chief executive officer, leading all aspects of the business and focus on adding new member companies to the platform.
"Omnia Exterior Solutions is delighted to announce the addition of Jeff to our team, a strategic move that aligns perfectly with our vision of fostering a community of forward-thinking business leaders committed to advancing the industry,” said Jim Ziminski, chairman of the board at Omnia Exterior Solutions.
“We recognize not only his extensive experience and collaborative approach but also Jeff’s unique ability to navigate and leverage challenges, thereby propelling the company forward during the dynamic transitions expected in the next 10-20 years,” Ziminski added.
Kizilbash has more than a quarter-century of management experience, including more than 18 years in the home improvement space working at Sears Holdings Co., Omnia said in a Dec. 21 news release. While at Sears, he served as the general manager of home services and president of the service line, leading all aspects of Sears’ home-related services, including kitchen and bath remodels, HVAC, home exteriors, garage doors, and carpet/upholstery cleaning.
“With the addition of Jeff to Omnia Exterior Solutions, we continue to build a world-class leadership team to create a differentiated partnership for regional market leaders,” said Mark McFadden, co-managing partner, CCMP Growth.
“Jeff has an outstanding mix of roofing and remodeling industry experience, as well as digital marketing leadership,” McFadden added. “With the leadership of Jeff, Jim Ziminski, Dan Shear and the rest of the team we are building, we are excited to take Omnia Exterior Solutions to the next level of performance.”
Kizilbash’s career has been focused on digital forward consumer services, helping customers and partners find the most trusted services for their needs. Most recently, he served as CEO of RealSelf, Inc., a leading online platform serving the medical aesthetics industry, where he managed acquisitions and business integrations.
Omnia said that Kizilbash, who also served in upper management roles at Transdev North America and Varsity Tutors, is a results-oriented executive focused on rapidly developing products, services and experiences.
“I am thrilled to join Omnia Exterior Solutions, where I look forward to leading a group of like-minded individuals who want to develop innovative solutions to advance the industry as a whole and serve their employees and customers at a higher level,” said Kizilbash.
Kizilbash, an Illinois native, received his bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and his master’s certification, GWCPM, from George Washington University (MIS). He currently resides in Chicago.
“It’s very exciting to join a team that has already been built full of intellectually curious entrepreneurs, compelling this business to unprecedented levels,” Kizilbash added.
