S-5!, the leading authority on metal roof attachment technology, today announced a new addition to its growing team.
“While some companies are pulling in the reigns in a hiring freeze and/or furloughing employees, S-5! continues to hire,” said S-5! CEO and Founder, Rob Haddock. “The duration of this pandemic is uncertain and casualties dear but, it will be over and S-5! remains future-forward thinking focused on constant development and growth.”
“And, it was only months ago that we were talking about the number one issue facing the construction industry being the labor shortage and how hard it was to find good people,” continued Haddock. “In fact, one of the silver linings of this crisis could be helping to solve the labor shortage issue that has existed for the past couple of years.”
In light of our ongoing plans for growth and development, we are pleased to welcome Brandon Kilpatrick to our team.
Kilpatrick is S-5!’s new Canadian business development manager and is responsible for developing distributor partnerships, contractor pull through, EPC, OEM and industry relationships to increase sales, market share and revenue within the Canadian market.
He joins S-5! from D.I. Roof Seamers―a manufacturer of roof seamer machinery―where he served as the Canadian national manager and established, managed and promoted the company’s business in Canada, including building its clientele base.
He has a deep understanding of all aspects of the business and understands how to establish strong and trusting relationships with key industry leaders. He brings an array of technical skills, including machining and metal roof installation along with metal roofing industry knowledge and access to major companies in the Canadian and U.S. market gained over the past 10 years.
Kilpatrick attended university in Canada, earning a bachelor’s degree in history at Wilfred Laurier University, a bachelor of applied business at George Brown College and an advanced diploma in environmental science lab/field technician honors at Niagara College Canada. In 2017, Kilpatrick was awarded the Metal Construction Association Triumph Award for “Industry Young Movers and Shakers.”
“We are very excited to have Brandon join our team,” said Haddock. “The depth of experience he brings to our company and our clients is key to our continued success and growth."
