LBM Advantage Reports Retirement of Duncan Facey as Vice President of Forest Products, Tim Johnson Selected as His Replacement

General News

After over 11 years of service at ENAP/LBM Advantage, Duncan Facey has tendered his retirement notice.

Mr. Facey has been LBM Advantage’s Vice President of Forest Products since 2009 and has overseen dramatic growth in sales and efficiency, taking the Forest Products Division from $250 million at ENAP in 2009 to over $1 billion at LBM Advantage. His leadership and broad experience have been a significant contributor to the success of the cooperative. He transitioned the organization from a service-centric philosophy to a sales and service approach – which included taking positions with mills on contracts and blocks – and greatly contributed to the value and the dividend to Advantage shareholders. Over the years Mr. Facey has enjoyed strong loyalty and support from his team. LBM Advantage congratulates Mr. Facey on his well-deserved retirement.

LBM Advantage’s Executive Team and member-based Search Committee is pleased to announce the promotion of Tim Johnson, Vice President of Southeastern Operations since 2017 and former President of IBSA, to Vice President of Forest Products. Tim’s experience in his roles of President and Member Development at IBSA (and his prior experience with a hardware cooperative) as well as his current role overseeing the growth of LBM Advantage forest products sales to the Southeast membership makes him uniquely qualified for this challenge. Tim understands well LBM Advantage’s commitment to its members and will build on the success of the Forest Products organization.

“We could not have found a better person to fill this important role. In addition to his depth of experience, Tim understands the co-op, and is dedicated to serving our members”, said Steve Sallah, president and CEO of LBM Advantage.

Mr. Johnson brings nearly 30 years of experience to his new role with ten years of executive leadership. He has been responsible for developing new sales territories and operations and has overseen strong growth in the Southeast region for LBM Advantage. He also has seven years of experience working for a hardware cooperative, making him uniquely capable of understanding our membership and what they expect from their cooperative.
