Sherri Baker - Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, PGT Innovations

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.” – MOTHER TERESA

Presented by PGT Innovations June 14, 2019

At 14 years old, Sherri Baker was already embarking on her career in finance as she worked for her father’s building supply company, running credit checks in the credit department. Since that time, she became the first in her family to graduate college, started a family of her own with her husband and two children, advanced through the ranks of corporate accounting and finance, and founded and led corporate networks that supported women and provided mentorship for career advancement. Now she has come full circle back to a finance position in a building supply company; only this time, it’s as Chief Financial Officer for PGT Innovations, the nation’s leading manufacturer of impact-resistant windows and doors.

Originally from Plano, Texas, Sherri always wanted to be the CFO of a publicly traded company. Prior to joining PGT Innovations, she held numerous VP of Finance roles at Dean Foods Company and spent 13 years at Frito-Lay in various finance and accounting roles. She joined PGT Innovations in April 2019 with nearly two decades of finance and accounting leadership experience and a deep understanding of investor relations and manufacturing operations.

A collaborative leader with a strong record of success, Sherri says the best advice she has received is to take on tasks that make you uncomfortable.

Thanks to that guidance, Sherri now leads the Venice-based company’s finance department. While the position fulfills her childhood dream, she chose PGT Innovations because the company’s focus on its people, servant leadership, and family-centered culture echo her own beliefs and passion.
