Manager of the Year Dan Jones is a company veteran with over 34 years at 84 Lumber and has won this accolade many times for his success as a manager. Jones continues to make a tremendous impact on the company and the industry.

“The numbers are great, those are the measurables,” said Jones. The immeasurables are the people, so when you find some of the most qualified young individuals we have within our company, we have to put them in positions where they gain experience and get the quality at-bats to grow themselves. The company has been good to me, it’s time to make sure the company is taken care of in the long run.” For more on Dan Jones, click here.
