BELOIT, Wis. — Mule-Hide Products Co. has promoted Steven Litaker to the position of territory manager for the newly created West Central and Southwest Florida Territory.

In his new role, Litaker will be the company’s lead contact with area contractors. He will help ensure projects are completed efficiently and according to specification; work with contractors and Mule-Hide Products parent company ABC Supply Co. Inc. to develop the best solutions to meet property owners’ roofing needs; and provide ongoing product, technical and sales training for contractors and ABC Supply associates.

Litaker had served Mule-Hide Products as business development manager in Florida since December 2019. During that time, he was instrumental in growing the company’s liquid-applied roofing business throughout the state. During the COVID-19 pandemic, he helped continue Mule-Hide Products’ education and training program by developing and presenting numerous online seminars for contractors, ABC Supply associates and Mule-Hide Products associates.

Prior to joining Mule-Hide Products, he worked in the Columbia, S.C. branch of ABC Supply. Initially working in inventory control and procurement, he quickly moved to inside sales and, shortly thereafter, was promoted to assistant branch manager.

“Steven has lived his entire life in the roofing world and has been walking roofs nearly as long as he has been walking,” said John Pantesco, Mule-Hide Products Southeast and Southwest regional director. “His relentless hard work and his passion for the business have earned him the trust of our contractors, ABC Supply and his peers at Mule-Hide.”

Litaker has a Bachelor of Science degree in biology/biological sciences from the University of South Carolina in Columbia. He will remain located in the Tampa, Fla. area.
