ABC Supply promotes exec

In his new role, Walker will work with the company’s national business development team to grow and develop ABC Supply’s low-slope roofing business -- particularly its share of large, top-tier customers and national roofers.

Walker comes to ABC Supply from Firestone Building Products, where he served as VP sales since 2007.

Headquartered in Beloit, Wis., ABC Supply was founded by Ken and Diane Hendricks in 1982. The company has more than 450 branches in 44 states and is dedicated exclusively to serving professional contractors.
