Pro-Build Holdings has announced the appointment of George Finkenstaedt, the company’s senior vp-supply chain, as its senior vp-corporate development. Finkenstaedt will oversee all mergers and acquisitions for the company in his new position, reporting to CEO Paul Hylbert.

Bill Myrick, senior vp-strategic initiatives for Pro-Build, will add supply chain duties to his responsibilities. Myrick will work with Darin Hildreth, vp-supply chain, “to develop a more cost advantaged procurement and logistics process,” the announcement said.

Pro-Build currently operates more than 500 lumberyards and manufacturing facilities in 40 states. It occupies the number one spot on HCN’s Pro Dealer Top 350, with $5.17 billion in sales in 2006.
