Tell us about your job. 

I work with a terrific group of coworkers. Together we build relationships with our customers, finding new ways to build sales and profitability. Each day is different but every day has the same goal: serving our customers and striving to be the best in our market.

How did you get into the industry?

The local lumberyard in my hometown was looking for a new manager. Although I had minimal building materials experience, I applied and they were crazy enough to give me a shot. Thankfully it worked out well and gave me the experience I needed to come over to Hines and take on my current role.

What do you like most about your work?

The opportunity to work with an amazing group of coworkers!

How have you grown as a professional since you joined your company?

I’ve had the opportunity to get my Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification. With US LBM and Hines, I’ve been empowered as a manager and professional more than in any other job I’ve had. I’ve learned a lot about the financials and P&L processes.

How would you describe the culture at US LBM?

It’s a big company, but it feels much smaller as you get the opportunity to meet a lot of people in different roles and positions. People help each other out and seem to be focused on common goals. We are always challenged to reach higher.

What would you say makes US LBM unique?

We’re a big company, but each division and location is allowed to have it’s own identity and make most of their own decisions. This allows us the flexibility to serve our individual markets in the best ways possible, without a lot of “one size fits all” solutions.
