ABC Supply Names Todd Buehl Vice President
A resident of Janesville, Wis., he joins the company from Hendricks Holding Co. Inc., which is affiliated with ABC Supply through common ownership. While there he most recently served as executive vice president. During his eight years with Hendricks he worked with ABC Supply on many key acquisitions, including its 2010 acquisition of Bradco Supply Corp. He has also served on ABC Supply’s board of directors since 2008.
While successful in his work endeavors, those who knew him best say he will be most remembered for his unbridled gregariousness and the magnanimity he showed his friends. “McAvoy was an important part of the industry,” says Tyson Schwartz, vice president of sales and marketing for Thermal Industries. “Dereck was well respected in the industry, especially the Virginia/Maryland marketplace. He was affectionately referred to and will be remembered as Bub.”
