Building materials distributor US LBM, Buffalo Grove, Illinois, announced on Monday that it has made several additions to its executive leadership team to support the company’s growth.

“Building high performing teams is central to US LBM’s value proposition,” said US LBM President and CEO L.T. Gibson. “With a wide range of experience from both within and outside the building materials and construction industry, the new members of our team are proven, forward-thinking leaders with long-histories of developing successful partnerships and will further drive the exceptional value US LBM creates for our suppliers, customers and communities

US LBM has hired Don Riley to the positions of executive vice president and chief operating officer. As COO, Riley is responsible for leading the company’s sales and operations strategy, which includes operational support functions and US LBM’s six operating regions, which are comprised of more than 400 building materials yards, distribution centers, showrooms and manufacturing locations nationwide.

Riley was most recently CEO of Cornerstone Building Brands’ Commercial Solutions business, before which he was president and CEO of NCI Building Systems, which merged with PlyGem to create Cornerstone.

Riley has held executive leadership roles with ProBuild and Mohawk Industries and holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

 Manish Shanbhag has joined US LBM as executive vice president and general counsel. He serves as the company’s top legal advisor, overseeing legal, compliance and corporate governance. 

Shanbhag joined US LBM from BrandSafway, a  global provider of work access and industrial service solutions, where he held the position of executive vice president, chief legal officer, chief compliance officer and corporate secretary. Prior to that, he was chief legal officer of Edgewell Personal Care, a global publicly traded consumer products company. He has held senior legal roles with Energizer Holdings, Honeywell Life Safety and the Gillette Company and is a graduate of Columbia University Law School and Amherst College.

 Pat Managan was promoted to the role of senior vice president of supply chain. In this new role, Managan leads US LBM’s purchasing strategy and organization to support the company’s national network of locations. Managan joined US LBM earlier this year through the company’s acquisition of ACS American Construction Source, where he was chief supply chain officer since the organization was founded in 2018. Previously, he has held leadership roles with BMC and Stock Building Supply.
