Barrons has a rich history of excellence in the building community. Our
visionary founder, Bill Norman started the company in 1947. Mr. Norman went
on to become a highly respected member of the building supply industry. He
even served a term as the president of the National Lumbermen’s Association.
Today, Barrons continues to carry on the great traditions of our past
leaders, who built our company on honesty, integrity, quality and excellence
in customer service. Leaders like Bill Smith who completed an esteemed 30
year career with Barrons – Gaithersburg Lumber retiring as its president.
Other past presidents include Charlie Davis who went on to a successful
career in training and consulting CEO’s around the country. John Eaton, who
during his tenure piloted Barrons into an unprecedented increase in size and
volume. And, our current president, Jim Davis, who started with Barrons
Gaithersburg Lumber in 1978 and worked his way up through the company with
real experience in virtually every aspect of the operation.
Mr. Davis has lead the company during an historic downturn in the economy
and yet has maintained a successful and profitable organization. Recently,
the company opened its second location in Manassas, Virginia and is
continuing to grow and service new customers and new markets. Along with the
five presidents that Barrons has had over the last 63 years it has benefited
from other owners who have now retired. George Wilcoxon our first vice
president who served with Mr. Norman. Randy Stoy our past controller and
treasurer and Dick Alexander who founded our kitchen division.
Barrons continues to follow the example of these fine leaders. At Barrons
the owners of the company are full time employees. They are onsite each and
every day. Our current owners are Jim Davis, President, Terry Michnya,
Executive Vice President, Annette Stuckey, our Controller and Treasurer,
Mike Soulen, our General Manager, and Ann Clodfelter our Credit Manager. Stop in and speak to any one of our owners anytime, just to say
