ATLANTA, Jan. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BMC Stock Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:STCK) Divisional Sales Director Paul Evans has been named the 2015 Builder/Remodeler Educator of the Year by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). Evans was honored at the 2016 International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Las Vegas on Monday, January 18. The annual NAHB Designee and Educator awards honor builders, remodelers and other industry professionals who actively hold NAHB designations and promote the value of NAHB designations among clients, colleagues, builders associations and media across the industry.
Evans’ classes emphasize the importance of building relationships as the key to great salesmanship. “True customer service is all the more valuable in this world of emails and texting,” stated Evans. “Education is key to making us all better at we do, better at serving our customers and able to take our industry to higher levels.”
“I am honored to have been recognized by the NAHB with this award,” added Evans. “But even greater is the satisfaction of a student telling me how they used what we learned in class to make them better at what they do.”
NAHB’s Designee and Educator of the Year awards were created to honor individuals who fully embody the organization’s ideals. Tom Stephani, the 2015 NAHB Education Chair, describes the honorees as industry leaders, noting, “They incorporate innovative practices and techniques that ultimately benefit customers as they shine a positive light on our industry and inspire others through their commitment to excellence.”
Evans, CGA, CGP, widely recognized as a building materials industry expert with over 32 years of experience, has been employed at BMC Stock for 22 years. He was the content reviewer for the course Basics of Building and a subject matter expert on the course Marketing and Sales for the NAHB. Evans is a board member for the Building and Energy Codes Committee for the state of Texas, and is a licensed contractor in nine states. His latest book, Life’s Lost Art, will appear in bookstores in March 2016.
