Kodiak Building Partners’ acquisition strategy helps develop a leading construction materials supplier.
Kodiak Building Partners CEO and co-founder Steve Swinney admits that Kodiak’s founders chose a risky time to leave their positions at a leading building materials company to invest in a construction recovery. It was 2010, and the construction industry was only beginning to rebound from the recession that rocked the market just a few years earlier. Swinney and his partners were not deterred. “We felt as though there was an opportunity for investment,” he says.
