The Executive Council on Construction Supply is a private think tank composed of leading independent construction suppliers throughout the U.S. and Canada, plus a select group of manufacturers, wholesalers, and service providers.
We’re not a roundtable; we don’t share financials. Our purpose is to study the marketplace, identify emerging opportunities, and develop strategies to capitalize on them.
Most of our members are market leaders, but size is not a criterion for membership. We simply look for the most forward-thinking, aggressive companies we can find. If they aren’t market leaders now, they will be soon.
WHAT WE DO...
The Executive Council is made up of two working groups. Each group holds a 2-1/2 day annual meeting.
Executive Council on Construction Supply. Current issues and trends, emerging opportunities in the LBM channel, strategies to capitalize on them. Owners, officers, and senior executives.
HR Executive Roundtable. Current issues and best practices in human resource management and professional development. HR executives and managers.

A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY
In the midst of an unprecedented worldwide boom in equity investment, consolidation is accelerating in every industry, including the LBM channel. That’s a breeding ground for innovation as megaplayers scramble to please Wall Street and independents strive to secure their competitive position.
However it plays out, the industry is entering a period of rapid change—and upheaval. To some that’s a threat; to others, an opportunity. If you believe you’re facing the opportunity of a lifetime, you’ll find your peers in the Executive Council on Construction Supply.
