S-5! Names Kilpatrick As Canadian Business Development Manager
Colorado Springs, CO – S-5!, one of the world's leading authorities
on metal roof attachment technology, has named Brandon Kilpatrick as the company's new Canadian Business Development Manager.
“While some companies are pulling in the reins 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 his new role with the company, Kilpatrick will be 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.
Kilpatrick holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Wilfred Laurier University, a bachelor of applied business from George Brown College and an advanced diploma in environmental science lab/field technician honors from Niagara College Canada.
In 2017, Kilpatrick was awarded the Metal Construction Association Triumph Award for “Industry Young Movers and Shakers.”
Kilpatrick is known to have 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.
“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.”
