ProBuild Holdings has named Bill Myrick, president of the company’s Strategic Initiatives group, as its new chief operating officer. In this role, Myrick will oversee all areas of field operations, supply chain, manufacturing, market development and gypsum.

Myrick joined ProBuild in February 2007 as a senior vp-strategic initiatives. He started his career in the LBM industry as a manager trainee at 84 Lumber, where he spent 25 years, rising to the position of chief operating officer before leaving last year to join ProBuild.
