SEYMOUR, Ind. - Royalty Roofing is pleased to announce the hiring of Thomas G. Hollingsworth as the company’s new business development director. 
Most recently, Hollingsworth was President of Duro-Last® Roofing, a position he held for 17 years. Prior to becoming President, Hollingsworth was Duro-Last’s vice president of quality assurance and information systems. During his tenure at Duro-Last, Hollingsworth implemented and supported corporate initiatives that yielded a 300 percent rise in profitability, including building market share, strengthening underperforming sales regions, fostering strategic business partnerships, introducing new product lines, and improving customer service programs. 
In his role with Royalty, Hollingsworth will pursue opportunities for growing the Royalty business through acquisitions. Once a prospect is acquired, Hollingsworth will integrate that entity’s operations into Royalty by acting as its interim chief operating officer. Hollingsworth’s leadership and strategic planning experience will complement Royalty’s proven business practices and the skill set of the company team already in place. 
 “The Royalty brand has been built largely on providing exceptional service to our customers,” said company President Andy Royalty. “We’re convinced that, as our geographic expansion continues throughout the United States, having Tom on our team will enable us to maintain the level of support that is at the heart of our business and that our customers deserve and expect.”
