“We are thrilled to add Bern to the team,” said Sean Hyer, CEO at Gardner-Gibson. “Bern’s experience with both building materials manufacturers and within the Lowe’s organization will serve the Lowe’s/Gardner-Gibson partnership very well and in turn, really champion the needs of the pro contractor.”
