In his new role as president, Bradburn is responsible for leading Lyman’s lumber and specialty building products distribution, labor services and manufacturing operations in the Twin Cities metropolitan area of Minnesota and in Eau Claire, Wis., US LBM said.

He succeeds Lyman’s outgoing president, Scott Richter, who was promoted to vice president of Midwest Region Operations for US LBM, Lyman’s parent company.

“Charlie has been a standout member of the team since joining over a decade ago,” said Richter. “He distinguished himself early as a leader in the company, and we look forward to Lyman’s continued success for years to come under Charlie’s leadership.”

Bradburn has more than 20 years of industry experience and began his Lyman career at ABC Millwork & Cabinetry, where he worked his way up from sales manager to branch manager, before becoming vice president of Lyman Companies in July 2019.

Founded in 1897 in Excelsior, Minn., Lyman Companies operates 8 sub-companies. This includes Lyman Lumber, Lyman Roofing & Siding, Carpentry Contractors, H&H Lumber Company, ABC Cabinetry, ABC Millwork, and Elevations by ABC.
