West brings management experience to the Texas-based lumber and building materials company. He has served at the district management level for the past 30 years and comes from his role as district manager of Safelite AutoGlass. Previously, West served as the District Manager and Market Director at Lowe’s.

West will receive transition support from Zarsky’s previous Co-Presidents Phillip Steffy and Steve Weaver before their retirement.

“After thorough succession planning and a comprehensive search process, the company is pleased to have found the best individual to assume leadership of our organization,” Weaver said. “Stephen has a track record of strong leadership both inside and outside of the lumber and building materials industry. This combined with his deep industry knowledge and tenure makes Stephen uniquely qualified to lead Zarsky successfully into the future.”

Kodiak ranks No. 11 among building materials/construction distributors on MDM’s 2023 Top Distributors Lists.
