Growing up in a family lumber business based in Wisconsin, Pat gained a unique perspective on local LBM operations. From operating a forklift and delivering product to working in sale and operations, Pat has essentially held every job in the lumber business. Following the sale of the family business, Pat joined Seigle’s, a regional LBM in the greater Chicago area where he was General Manager of a large lumber operation. He later returned to Wisconsin as General Manager of Dunn Lumber in Southern Wisconsin before he joined New England Building Supply as Co-President.
Aside from his duties leading building maerials businesses, Pat served his community with a stint in the Rotary Club and as a paid on call firefighter for 34 years, ultimately retiring as Capatin. Pat graduated from UW-Whitewater in Wisconsin with his BBA in Business Administration, Management, and Operations.
