The Executive Council on Construction Supply is a think tank composed of leading independent suppliers throughout the U.S. and Canada, plus select manufacturers, wholesalers, and service providers.
We're not a roundtable; we don't share financials. Our purpose is to study the marketplace and identify emerging opportunities, then share strategies to capitalize on them.
Membership is by invitation only, limited at the dealer level to independents and regional chains. Our members tend to be large—average company size is $94.9 million—but size is not a criterion for membership.
We simply look for the most aggressive, forward-thinking companies we can find. As often as not, they're market leaders—and if not now, soon.
