A New Era at Wimsatt Building Materials

Growing up in this industry and having been a contractor myself, I know first hand how important it is to choose the right supplier to do business with. It was my experience as a Wimsatt customer back in the late sixties that led me to join the company in 1974 as a salesperson, move into management and eventually take ownership in 1983. Since then, our growth has been fueled by the trust that professional contractors have placed in our company. Over the years, it’s been my pleasure as President of Wimsatt Building Materials to operate our company at a level that defines what it is to provide a professional delivery service to the professional contractor.

After 35 years of service to the company as President, I am ready to pass the torch.

I am proud to announce Rob Hoffman as the new President and Chief Operating Officer of Wimsatt Building Materials. Like me, Rob grew up in the business. During his career at Wimsatt, he’s had responsibility in almost every aspect of our business including leadership roles in both Operations and Sales. As our Director of Sales & Marketing, Rob has been instrumental in helping develop the company’s strategy as well as our talent. I am confident that our company and our people will continue to thrive with his leadership as President.

Rob is supported in his new role by the following Vice Presidents: Charlie Hoffman, Jim Carlson, Greg Hoffman, Al DeChene, and Jerry Swiney, as well as newly promoted company officers Linda Martin and Keith Hammer.

I will retain my role as Chairman of the Board and CEO of Wimsatt Building Materials, and look forward to working with our expanded leadership team. These changes take effect on February first, marking a new era at Wimsatt as we chart a course for continued growth and success.

Thank you very much for your loyalty and patronage over the years. It means very much!

Bob Hoffman
Chairman and CEO
