Building materials supplier 84 Lumber introduced its inaugural Team Headquarters Award winners. The new awards program was launched as a way of recognizing and rewarding associates at 84 Lumber’s headquarters in Eighty Four, Pa. The dealer selected winners for two different categories: Business Excellence and Rising Star.

Ryan Oakes, 84 Lumber’s senior manager for transportation and specialty purchasing, was recognized with the Business Excellence Award. The dealer said the Business Excellence Award recognizes an associate who has demonstrated leadership skills, achievement, growth, and success at 84 Lumber.

Oakes has worked with 84 Lumber for six years and was promoted to his current position in October 2021. Recently, Oakes led his department to strategically place additional delivery trucks and forklifts into stores, allowing several stores to double their business, according to 84 Lumber.

84 Lumber recognized marketing manager Ashley Cyprowski with the Rising Star Award. The award recognizes an “up-and-coming” associate with the company. Cyprowski joined 84 Lumber 2021 and works daily with associates across the country on local store advertising, recruitment, and events. In 2022, Cyprowski implemented new recruitment marketing efforts for the company, which has been beneficial for “keeping up with the company’s record year of growth,” according to 84 Lumber.

“Our main goal at 84 Lumber team headquarters is to provide top tier service and support to our customers and to our stores,” 84 Lumber chief operating officer Frank Cicero said. “Both Ryan and Ashley work hard on behalf of our stores each and every day, and I hear nothing but positive feedback from store associates about them.”
