Tum-a-Lum Lumber Co. announced today it has hired M. David Dittmer, a former executive with ProBuild and one of its predecessors, to serve as CEO of the four-yard company.
A year and a half after LBM giant ProBuild built three greenfield facilities in competitor 84 Lumber's home territory, the company is backing out of the region and second-guessing its recent spate of greenfield startups.
In mid-March, recently appointed ProBuild CEO Robert Marchbank said the company would spend three months “reviewing what resources will be needed going forward to support the business.”
American Builders Supply hired former ProBuild head Bill Myrick as CEO, the supplier’s parent company, Blue Wolf Capital Partners, announced.
The industry veteran steps into his new role.
Eighteen months of customer soundings and self-examination have given ProBuild a clear vision of what it should become, the company's CEO tells PROSALES in an exclusive interview. Rob Marchbank says the result is more a refinement than an overhaul, but one that helps the company move from its patchwork past to a more flexible, yet still unified future.
New hire was integral in ProBuild’s streamlining of its management structure.
Too many dealers complain too much about price-cutting by big competitors like ProBuild, editor Craig Webb argues.
ProBuild is a supplier of building materials to national residential and commercial builders, local contractors, and do-it-yourselfers.
ProBuild eliminated 127 corporate positions at its Denver headquarters in a move a company spokesperson said was taken to better align its business practices and create more efficiency.
