Beacon has appointed Dan Worley as vice president, environment, health & safety (EHS).

Worley has been in the roofing industry his entire career and has served 32 years with Beacon. His extensive operations experience culminated in his most recent role of regional vice president, Mid Atlantic.

“This role gives me the opportunity to dedicate myself to Beacon and the industry in a new way that goes right to my heart for engaging people,” Worley said. “Having led 30 branches and 540 team members in our Mid-Atlantic region, I have seen the impact of positivity and the power of caring for one another on the job and off. I could not be more pleased to receive this appointment and contribute continuous improvement on our environment, health, and safety journey.”

“We are thrilled that Dan has taken this critical leadership role,” said Julian Francis, president and CEO of Beacon. “Putting People First and Making Every Day Safer are core values at Beacon, and I am confident that Dan’s passion for getting our employees home safely every night and his deep and broad experience delivering operational excellence will further strengthen our culture.”

According to Francis, the appointment is another example of Beacon tapping top talent to make an impact in the areas most fundamental to the business. 

Building a "winning culture" is a pillar of its Ambition 2025 growth strategy, the company said. 

“And there is nothing more important than the health and safety of our team members who serve customers and communities every day,” Francis noted.

Based in Herndon, Va., Beacon is a distributor of building products, including roofing materials and complementary products, such as siding and waterproofing. The company operates over 480 branches throughout all 50 states in the U.S. and 6 provinces in Canada. Beacon serves an extensive base of nearly 100,000 customers.
