McCoy’s Building Supply added two members to its executive team: Melanie Rae has been promoted to vice president of people development, benefits, and training, and Brandon Bishop has been promoted to vice president of merchandising.
“It is such an honor to welcome Melanie and Brandon to our executive team. I appreciate the balanced and wise view that Melanie brings to complex issues. And Brandon is an analytical thinker and a diligent student of our industry,” said McCoy’s president and CEO Meagan McCoy Jones. “Every responsibility in McCoy’s ultimately reports up to one of the 12 leaders on our executive team, and they have my trust and confidence as our company continues to grow and thrive.”
Rae has over 20 years of experience at McCoy’s, starting with the dealer as a human resources generalist before moving into manager and supervisor roles. In her roles of increasing responsibility, Rae helped establish and grow McCoy’s people development, benefits, and training departments. Most recently, she served as director of people development.
“I’m so excited for this next step and to be able to foster development in our McCoy’s team,” Rae said in a prepared statement. “As a team, we will continue to champion our unique McCoy’s culture while finding strategic ways to enhance their employment experience.”
Bishop has worked for McCoy’s Building Supply for 15 years, including five years at the company’s Stephenville location. Most recently, he has served as the director of merchandising - commodities, leading his team while working closely with members of the dealer’s vendor community during supply chain challenges.
“I’m looking forward to continuing to support the commodities side of our business while also expanding to work with hardlines and our store planning teams as well as their vendor partners,” Bishop said. “Overall, merchandising has such a direct impact on our store teams and our customers. This new role allows a specific voice on the executive team to fully represent this department which is exciting.”
