Frank Green — President

Frank Green started in this industry years before he decided to open AI Innovations. Knowing he had more to offer the industry he decided he couldn't do it working for another company. After collaborating with long time friend Brett Hodges they decided to take the leap and start Awning Innovations in 1999. A few years in the awning industry they were seeking ways of providing more for their customers. It didn't take long to figure out that most of their customer were sign companies. Manufacturing channel letters was an obvious start to providing customers with what they need from a wholesaler. This is when AI Innovations was born. Since then, Frank continues to broaden the product line by introducing cabinets, decorated faces, post & panels and such cutting edge products as Slimbrite. You never know just what he will think of next, but whatever it is, it will continue to keep AI in front of the industry.
