Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. (NASDAQ: BECN) (“Beacon” or the “Company”) announced today that its Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, David R. Grace, will retire effective January 1, 2013 for health reasons. A nationally recognized executive recruiting firm is conducting a search for his successor. Mr. Grace will remain in his current role until a new CFO is named and has also agreed to devote as much time as necessary to ensure a seamless transition.
Mr. Grace graduated with an accounting degree from Bentley College in Waltham, Massachusetts. Mr. Grace has been the leader of Beacon’s financial organization and also oversees information technology and investor relations. He joined the Company as an accountant in 1987, when Beacon operated three branches, and served in positions of increasing responsibility until he was named CFO in 1997. He was most recently promoted to Executive Vice President on January 1, 2011.
Paul Isabella, the Company’s President & Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Throughout his 25-plus years of service to Beacon, Dave has been a key part of the Company’s tremendous growth and success, including the completion of our 2004 IPO, a secondary offering in 2005, and many debt financings and acquisitions. He has built strong finance and IT teams and a disciplined financial culture that will serve the Company well in the years ahead. Although we certainly will miss Dave’s leadership and guidance, we understand and appreciate his decision that his health and family are his main focus at this time. We are grateful that Dave will continue to lead his departments until we transition to his successor. We wish Dave a long, enjoyable, and healthy retirement and thank him for his many years of service to Beacon.”
