BlueLinx names new regional vice presidents
BlueLinx Holdings Inc. announced that it has promoted two of its leading general managers to the role of regional vice president.
Matt Lyle, most recently the general manager of the Gulfport, Miss. and Monroe, La. branches, will be leading the building products distributor’s Central Region. George Zarick, most recently the general manager of the Denville, N.J. and Frederick, Md. branches, will be leading the East Region.
Lyle began his career in the building products distribution division at Georgia-Pacific. While at Georgia-Pacific, Lyle gained extensive experience in procurement, product management, and territory sales.
In 2007, he took on the responsibilities of general manager for the Monroe, La. branch, and in 2014, Lyle launched the Gulfport, Miss. business from the ground up.
Zarick began his career as a sales representative for the Trex Company. He then moved to OmniMax International, first as an architectural representative for the Northeast, and then as the director of national accounts.
The new regional vice president came on board with BlueLinx as the general manager for the Frederick, Md. branch in 2016, and in May of 2020, he began managing the Denville, N.J. branch.
“We are excited to announce the promotion of Matt and George to regional vice president.
