Today, JIAN would like to pay tribute and honor the memory of Mr. Fenton Hord. “Fenton was a wonderful colleague and one of the kindest men you would ever meet” said Michael Turner. In 2008, Fenton accepted the appointment of Chairman of the Board for The JIAN Group. His legacy in the building materials industry was unprecedented. Mr. Hord had an illustrious career with Stock Building Supply as President and Chief Executive Officer until he retired in July 2007. Mr. Hord served on many boards and organizations. The JIAN Group expresses their deep sympathy and our thoughts are with the family at this time.
