Meek’s, the 23rd-biggest dealer on the ProSales 100, announced today that Charlie Meek will take over as CEO effective immediately. The decision is part of an ongoing plan to unify management under one national CEO after years in which the firm operated under two divisions with separate, decentralized management teams in two distinct geographic footprints.
Carrie Meek will become chairwoman of the board, the company also announced.
Meek's operates 46 full-service lumberyards and nearly a dozen ancillary locations including distribution centers, installed service outlets and more in four states: Arkansas, Missouri, California and Nevada. Carrie Meek said "combining our two divisions allows us to leverage opportunities as one company."
“I am very excited for Meek’s; this is an excellent management team, with complementary strengths" said Charlie Meek. "There is no doubt in my mind that the opportunity for this blended executive team to work closely with each other is going to produce outsized results. Collectively, we have worked very deliberately to develop and begin implementing a comprehensive strategy which will allow Meek’s to continue its growth as a leading building products supplier."
Meeks had $316 million in total sales last year, 80% of it to pros.
