EIGHTY FOUR, Pa. - Nick Luchonok, co-manager of 84 Lumber’s store in Oakland, New Jersey has been selected as the company's 2018 Rookie of the Year. He and others were honored as top performers during the company’s annual awards banquet, which was held in March at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Farmington, Pennsylvania.
Luchonok joined the company in Jan. 2018 and was promoted to co-manager in August with aspirations of one day managing his own store. Bringing an ambitious nature to his role, one of his primary goals is to re-familiarize the store’s contractor customers with counter service.
“[We] needed someone who could bring some of that business back to the counter,” says Luchonok. “Now contractors are being exposed to and supported by more people at the store, which improves the overall service they get from us.”
The Rookie of the Year program was launched in 2016 as part of 84 Lumber’s people-first culture and a desire to celebrate the impact individuals have on the business. Other awards presented at the ceremony included the Manager of the Year, Area Manager of the Year, Buyer of the Year, Hauler of the Year, and various merit awards for best sales performance and improvement.
