Tell us about your role
I am the Inside Sales Manager for Brand Vaughan Lumber a division of USLBM. My team consists of 15 of the best Inside Sales rep’s in the industry. I oversee the daily operations in the inside sales department. Hiring and training are two huge responsibilities as well.
How did you get into the industry?
I was given the opportunity to join the residential building supply industry when a close friend on mine opened a lumber yard.
What do you like most about your work?
I enjoy the people. I love talking and working with builders/customers internally and externally. One of the focuses at Brand Vaughan is to “build uncommon relationships with our team members”. This really hits home with me. I value my team members and enjoy working with each and every one of them.
How have you grown as a professional since you joined the company?
I was fortunate enough to attend the “Executive Leadership Program”. The program consisted of individuals from all areas of the industry. I learned so much from my peers from a different point of view than what I see in sales. I also earned my yellow belt!
How would you describe the culture at US LBM?
I feel like US LBM believes in its team members. The open-door policy is not just something they say, it is how they operate.
What would you say makes US LBM unique?
The most unique thing I see with US LBM is that you are not just a number, you are person.
