Pat Moretti promoted at Ricci Lumber

HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. — Kodiak Building Partners and Ricci Lumber have announced the promotion of Pat Moretti to president of Ricci Lumber. Moretti joined Ricci in 1977 in the hardware department stocking and merchandising and has been with the company for the past 45 years.

“Pat has consistently set a high standard for everything he has undertaken. His talents are many including sales, operations, excellence in follow-through, and giftedness in customer and employee relations. His greatest strength is the ability to work with leaders at every level of our company to advance Ricci’s productivity, processes, and customer relations, which he does with passion and humility. Pat’s experience working with Ricci’s past and only presidents— my grandfather, Erminio Ricci, my father, Don Hayes, and myself— has prepared him tremendously to be Ricci’s fourth president,” said Ed Hayes, Ricci Lumber’s previous president.

Throughout his tenure at Ricci Lumber, Moretti has worked in almost every position in the business, the company said. After working in the hardware department for two years, Moretti moved to yard associate and assistant yard manager for a year before he got his CDL and became a truck driver for two years, then moved again to inside sales for another few years. When Ricci’s yard foreman retired, Moretti served as interim yard manager for a year and then transitioned to outside sales before taking the position of store manager. In 1991, Moretti was promoted to general manager where he remained for 31 years until his promotion to president in February.
