Beacon Roofing Supply president and CEO to step down

Beacon Roofing Supply Inc. announced that president and CEO Paul Isabella will leave the company later this fiscal year.

He will remain president and CEO, and a director, during the company’s nationwide search for his successor and will remain with Beacon through the transition of his duties until his departure, after which he will remain an advisor to the company.

“Paul Isabella has provided 12 years of dedicated service to Beacon,” said Robert R. Buck, Beacon's chairman. "He has been a valued leader to our executive management team, especially through our recent transformative acquisitions of RSG and Allied. As part of our company’s succession-planning process, we have prepared for Paul’s departure and we are glad that Paul is willing to remain with Beacon through our on-boarding of a successor with the skills, experience, and vision to lead Beacon to many more years of growth in sales and profitability.”

Isabella joined the company in 2007 and was named a director in 2011. Prior to joining Beacon, he served in executive roles at Cooper Industries and Stanley Works.

“It remains my great pleasure to serve as Beacon’s president and CEO through my departure and to continue to play a role in Beacon’s growth and success,” said Isabella. “A strong succession planning process is critical to the long-term success of a great company and I look forward to helping Beacon ensure that my successor will be well-equipped to lead Beacon to even greater heights.”
