I started my career in 1979, after serving in the Navy for 2 years, when I had the opportunity to purchase Broadway Perryville Lumber Co. in Rockford Il., In 1986 I ended up closing the lumber yard and had the opportunity to work for a chain yard, Wolohan Lumber Co. in 1987-1998 which was a multi-million dollar operation in Loves Park Il. I furthered my experience with Wolohan Lumber Co. when they gave me the chance to start up a door shop operation at the location in Loves Park. In 1998 Wolohan Lumber Co. sold out to Stock Building Supply where I managed until 2008 when our industry experienced a nationwide slowdown in housing and they decided to shut down their Midwest operations. I then was afforded the opportunity to go to work for Alexander Lumber Co. in 2009 which is a privately owned company.
In my 36 years of experience in the lumber industry, I have come to learn that the number one goal is, excellence in customer service which is the foundation of any successful business.
