McCoy's names first regional support manager

By HBSDealer Staff - 04/11/2018
McCoy's Building Supply, the San Marco, Texas-based pro dealer and farm and ranch retailer, has made a series of managerial promotions, including the creation of its first regional support manager position.

John Brown — a native of Lufkin, Texas, and a 30-year veteran of McCoy’s, who began his career working part-time in the lumberyard of his hometown store — has been appointed to the new position. For the past 17 years, Brown has served as manager of the Lufkin location.

In his new role, Brown will provide direct support to McCoy’s store managers as they mentor assistant managers and others in the company.

“Mentorship, versus education alone, is a hallmark of a McCoy’s leader,” said Meagan McCoy Jones, executive VP and COO. “For us to ensure all our leaders are growing as mentors, we’ll need some additional support, and John is particularly gifted in this way.”

After celebrating its 90th anniversary last year, McCoy’s said that the new position highlights the company’s commitment to growth in the 21st century. “John thoroughly knows our company culture and has always demonstrated such high integrity and concern for others,” said CEO Brian McCoy. “He is a time-tested and dynamic leader at McCoy’s and was the ideal choice for this new position.”

“My primary focus will be the growth and development of our future leaders,” Brown shared. “It is critical that everyone have the opportunity to identify and achieve their purpose. I’m excited for the opportunity to support the success of our current and future leaders.”

McCoy’s has also appointed Tyler Fenley as store manager of its Lufkin location. Fenley joined McCoy’s 10 years ago as part of the yard crew at Lufkin and worked as an assistant manager in several Texas locations including Nacogdoches, Palestine and Longview. Later, Fenley was promoted to store manager of McCoy’s Searcy, Ariz. Store, which he managed for the past three years.

“I’m excited to return home and be able to serve the community that I grew up in. It’s great to be reunited with the Lufkin team and see these familiar faces,” says Fenley. “Our customers can expect continued excellent customer service from a caring team who is here to serve.”

Regional Manager Darien Swann shares, “Tyler did an outstanding job of developing and leading his team in Searcy. I am honored to welcome him back home to Lufkin.”

Also, Laura Tafoya has been named store manager of McCoy’s League City, Texas, location.

Tafoya joined McCoy’s nearly three years ago as part of its Management Development Program, working first in the Stephenville, Texas, store before being promoted to assistant manager of the company’s Longview location.

“The MDP exposed me to the many different aspects of being a manager,” Tafoya said. “And it’s really prepared me to connect with my new team in League City and its market.”

McCoy’s Building Supply is one of the nation’s largest privately held building supply retailers and operates 87 stores and two millwork facilities in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi and New Mexico.
