Since we’re 100% privately held and are fortunate to have strong support from the LBM community, we’re able to do what we want. As it happens, what we want is to help you and other members of the LBM community build your business, your sales, and your brand. That’s what’s “Behind the LBM 100,” and everything else we do. As my friend Michael Beaudry, Executive VP of NADRA likes to say, “It’s about doing the right things for the right reasons, and having fun doing them.”

The successful ones, we praise. The under-performers, we encourage. The disruptive ones, we admonish, or worse.

These are the invisible people, and I would maintain that they are probably the largest untapped resource you have in your organization.
