Tony Lutz Becomes President and CEO of Elkay Interior Systems

MILWAUKEE, WI, January 13, 2022: Elkay Interior Systems (EIS) is proud to announce that former Senior Vice President Tony Lutz has transitioned to President and CEO of EIS Global effective December 30, 2021, following the retirement of Steve Rogers. 


Before joining Elkay, Tony was the President & CEO of Interior Systems and has been with Interior Systems since joining the firm in 1988. When Elkay acquired EIS in 2017, Tony utilized his dynamic and engaging leadership style to help EIS become a globally recognized brand that delivers unrivaled design and manufacturing solutions to hospitality, restaurant, retail, and education markets.

As President & CEO of EIS, Tony will oversee all worldwide operations, including branding, design, program management, project management, sales, manufacturing, distribution, and finance. Under Tony's leadership, EIS will continue to focus on providing exceptional mass craft services, which allows the company to offer its clients unique interior solutions on a scale of one to thousands.

As part of the EIS business, Tony will also oversee Digney York Associates (DYA), a Washington, DC-based hotel renovation contracting group acquired by EIS in 2019, expanding its hospitality capabilities. DYA is the U.S. leader in helping the world's largest luxury hotel brands re-image their properties, specializing in guest room renovations, lobby, and convention space conversions, offering extensive services needed to support large-scale projects. 

"I am incredibly proud of EIS' accomplishments under Tony's leadership," said Ric Phillips, President, and CEO of Elkay Manufacturing. "He's a well-rounded visionary leader who is creative, analytical, and driven to succeed, and I can think of nobody more deserving of this expanded leadership role than Tony. I am excited to watch EIS flourish as it moves into a new chapter."
