Flitman, 54, has more than three decades of experience leading distribution businesses across multiple industries, including Performance Food Group, Univar and Ecolab.

“I am honored to be named President and CEO of BMC at such an exciting time,” said Flitman. “BMC is on the leading edge of development and innovation in this industry, providing builders and remodeling contractors with the tools and solutions needed to address a very challenging labor environment, reduce cycle times, save money and reduce waste. Given the Company’s strengths, I believe that we have a tremendous opportunity to build upon that foundation to continue to grow and succeed as we focus on delivering superior service to our customers. I look forward to working with the BMC Board, management team and associates to drive enhanced value for our stakeholders.”
