84 Lumber announced area manager Mark Ingersoll will be moving to its Western division, overseeing facilities in California, Nevada, and Arizona.
“His accomplishments as a seasoned leader in our Southeast division, coupled with his commitment to the success of the company, makes him the best choice to manage our opportunities out west,” 84 Lumber CEO owner and Maggie Hardy said in a prepared statement. “With all the ongoing growth in California, combined with our potential plans for key markets in the West, having Mark lead the charge is without a doubt the best move for us.”
Ingersoll joined 84 Lumber in February 1992 as a manager trainee in Depew, N.Y., and was named area manager in 2002, overseeing 84 Lumber sites in Florida and Georgia.
