Construction Supply Holdings today announced the appointment of Mitch Williams as President and CEO. Construction Supply Holdings is a leader in the distribution of construction materials, accessories and tools primarily for professional concrete and masonry contractors in the United States and Canada. The company has 48 branches with 750 employees and offers over 70,000 SKUs for nearly 25,000 customers.
Most recently, Mitch was the CEO of Rexel’s $1.7 billion Asia Pacific region which had more than 250 branches in 13 countries and over 3,000 employees. Having spent his entire career in distribution, Mitch brings valuable experience to Construction Supply. “Mitch brings proven experience in sales, commercial leadership, operational excellence, supply chain, acquisitions and integration. These are all things that will make him an exceptional partner for our existing teams, customers and vendors,” said Brian Henry, a Partner at The Sterling Group.
In late 2016, The Sterling Group, a middle market private equity firm based in Houston, Texas, brought together Brock White Company, LLC, Border Construction Specialties, LLC and Stetson Building Products, Inc., forming Construction Supply Holdings. Each an industry leader in their respective markets, the combined companies represent a much broader geographic footprint and the opportunity to continue providing best-in-class products and services to their growing customer bases.
“Sterling and each of the three existing teams have a shared vision and plan to build a best-in-class distribution business,” said Mitch Williams. “The opportunity to join such a strong team with a passion for construction materials was one I couldn’t pass up.” Sterling has a long history of partnering with management to build businesses and transform segments of the building products industry, including successful investments in Roofing Supply Group and American Bath Group.
