Pioneer Millworks announced the addition of Andy McQuade as Director of Sales, continuing the company’s investment in servicing clients and projects with the wood products they need to be successful.
Andy will hold a strategic role in sales, focusing on supporting the national sales team, allowing more one-on-one customer interaction, while developing new opportunities to meet growing customer needs. He brings with him an impeccable reputation for building and motivating high-performance teams who deliver high-touch services.
Founder and President of Pioneer Millworks, Jonathan Orpin, commented, “Andy brings great energy and experience to our sales services and will solidify our overall customer experiences and successes, ensuring that we delight designers, builders, architects, and homeowners while fulfilling their vision and goals.”
A 20-year veteran of the building materials supply industry, Andy previously helped real estate developers and property managers improve their purchasing and procurement nationwide. Most recently Andy held a commercial sales manager role at a large national home improvement retailer, managing the largest property management portfolio for the company, specializing in aligning design selections and product needs with customer vision, target clientele, and budgets. He currently holds CAPS (Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist), CGA (Certified Graduate Associate), and CGP (Certified Green Professional) certifications with the NAHB, and serves on the Board of Directors for the Upstate Building Industry Alliance based in Rochester, New York.
“Working one-on-one with customers where I can inquire directly about their needs and their project specifics has allowed me to better understand product needs and varied approaches for individual businesses. Through this understanding of vision, goals, and priorities, I’ve been able to better advise on how to integrate solutions for every project. I’m excited to bring these skills to the wood and design team at Pioneer Millworks,” said Andy.
From single room remodels to the construction of hotels, restaurants, apartment complexes, student housing, and more, Andy has taken a proactive approach, identifying challenges and implementing systems to ensure smooth transitions to completed projects.
“I’m looking forward to helping Pioneer Millworks continue to scale up, to help projects to reach their full potential using reclaimed and sustainable wood products throughout the USA. Plus, I’m working for a company the practices the Triple Bottom Line business model of People, Planet, and Profit–that’s simply excellent,” Andy continued.
