ProBuild Names Bill Myrick CEO
DENVER, August 23, 2010 – ProBuild Holdings Inc., one of the nation’s largest professional building materials suppliers, today announced Bill Myrick has been appointed chief executive officer, succeeding Paul Hylbert, who is stepping aside from day-to-day responsibilities after having been ProBuild’s CEO since January of 2007. Hylbert will continue to serve as a senior advisor and director of ProBuild’s board.

ProBuild’s chief operating officer for the past two years, Myrick has nearly 30 years experience in the home building industry. He joined ProBuild in 2007 as Senior Vice President of Strategic Initiatives.

“I feel very fortunate to have joined ProBuild at its inception and to have productively spent nearly five years in the development of the company,” said Hylbert. “Bill’s broad industry and leadership experience positions him well to lead ProBuild into its next phase of development.”

As CEO, Hylbert spearheaded multiple acquisitions enabling ProBuild to achieve market-leading status, oversaw ProBuild’s move to maximize the company’s combination of local expertise with nationwide resources and established the company’s headquarters in Colorado.

Like Hylbert, Myrick began his career in building products distribution in lumberyards. During his career, Myrick has held progressively more responsible positions in virtually every aspect of the industry, the past 15 years of which have been in senior management roles.
