Dale Nelson, co-founder/owner and current President stated that Roof Hugger is fortunate to have an office staff of knowledgeable and dedicated employees. After careful consideration of our team members, D.J. bubbled to the top. D.J. comes from the design-build construction industry, he been a project manager, he has worked as a steel erector (personally installing more Huggers than I have), he also holds a Class “A” Florida Contractors License and has operated his own construction company.
DJ is the father of four; he has four grandchildren and interestingly is the grandson of one of Roof Hugger’s founding partners, Red McConnohie. It is his dedication and hard work however that have made him the deserving and qualified leader needed for this position. We congratulate him and look forward to each of you getting to know him.
Dale Nelson is staying on as President on at a much-reduced workload going forward. His responsibilities will now be as an industry association liaison, national account sales and research and product development, as well product testing. He will also be working closely with Roof Hugger’s parent company, LSI Group, Inc. of Logansport, IN. Dale and his wife Jan sold Roof Hugger in 2016 to Robert Baker, President of LSI. Roof Hugger has grown in sales volume, testing of more products and promotional and marketing efforts. Dale loves what his new responsibility will be, because it will afford him more time to enjoy some leisurely things he enjoys but keeps him active in the metal construction industry. Dale is a past President of the Metal Construction Association (MCA).
Robert Baker stated that I am delighted that DJ will become our new Vice-President. He has demonstrated great leadership and enthusiasm for the position. He brings the vision and values to lead Roof Hugger into the future. I welcome DJ to his new role at Roof Hugger and look forward to working with him. He went on to say that Dale will continue to be a valuable asset to Roof Hugger and is pleased that he will remain part of the LSI Group.
D.J.’s grandfather Red would be very proud of him for becoming Vice-President at Roof Hugger and carrying on his legacy
