Cedar Creek hires John Edwards

Building products distributor Cedar Creek hired John Edwards as engineered wood manager in Statesville, N.C.

Edwards is a graduate of Virginia Tech with a degree in Civil Engineering and has spent 27 years in the EWP industry, most recently with International Beam. The company says he "will use his extensive experience to help lead Cedar Creek’s market share growth across Statesville’s multi-state coverage area."

Cedar Creek operates 16 locations covering 25 states. In May 2010, Cedar Creek was recapitalized by Charlesbank Capital Partners with the goal of providing flexible capital to grow beyond its current trade areas.
