Kodiak Building Partners announced that Randy Grill has earned a new title at Jenkins Lumber & Hardware in Alpine, Wyo.
Grill has been named Jenkins Lumber & Hardware president.
The new top executive at Jenkins was hired by Davie Jenkins in 2018 to ultimately run Jenkins Lumber & Hardware. Grill’s background as a general manager of a large beverage distribution company gave him the acumen to easily transition to operations in the LBM industry, Kodiak Building Partners said.
To successfully lead Jenkins, Grill worked through all departments and benefitted from the vast experience of the seasoned employees at Jenkins.
Jenkins Lumber & Hardware was acquired by Kodiak Building Partners in the fall of 2019, and Dave Jenkins took that opportunity to enjoy the customer-forward tasks at the company with Grill Randy essentially assuming the top leadership role.
Upon Dave Jenkin’s retirement in February 2022, Grill officially became the President of Jenkins Lumber.
Grill said he is grateful for the opportunity provided by Dave and also Kodiak.
He remarked that Kodiak really succeeds at facilitating relationships among its companies. He noted that he appreciates that he can call or text any of the company operators with questions and comradery and that his little corner of world is vastly broadened by those connections.
