ProBuild names new exec VP

ProBuild Holdings has named Don Riley, the former CIO of Mohawk, as its new executive VP supply chain and technology. In this role, Riley will be responsible for integrating ProBuild’s supply chain, information technology and manufacturing organizations, including developing strategies and programs to improve the company’s overall operational effectiveness, grow market share and maximize profitability.

Reporting to Riley will be Paul Dodge, senior VP supply chain; Lonnie Bernardoni, senior VP manufacturing and business process improvement lead; and John Huber, chief information officer.
