LP Building Solutions announced two leadership changes within its OSB department: the appointment of Gabriel Farias to the role of vice president of OSB manufacturing and the promotion of Landon Stephens to the role of director of OSB sales and marketing planning.
“Gabriel and Landon are both highly capable leaders, who will drive new levels of productivity, efficiency, and success for our operations and sales and marketing teams,” LP executive vice president and general manager of OSB Jimmy Mason said in a prepared statement. “I am confident that their leadership will be an incredible asset to LP as we achieve our ambitious operations and sales goals.”
In the role of vice president of OSB manufacturing, Farias is responsible for leading the development, execution, and attainment of our OSB operating goals; ensuring compliance with established corporate and regulatory policies and overseeing the safe, environmentally sound production of LP’s oriented strand board and structural solutions products. Farias has more than 25 years of manufacturing experience, having previously worked for Armstrong Flooring and Armstrong World Industries.
Stephens joined LP in 2015 as an OSB account manager before being promoted to the role of regional sales manager and senior national OSB sales manager. Before joining LP, he held account management positions at Dell and Windstream Communications. In his new role, Stephens will serve as the face of LP’s OSB business segment to customers. His responsibilities include developing and implementing LP’s annual strategic sales plans and leading its OSB sales, marketing, and customer services.
