Roach joins Winsupply after
27 years of experience in the industry. He is a
"third-generation HVAC guy," having grown up in Houston in a
family involved in the heating, ventilation and air
conditioning business. He started just out of high school as
a licensed residential service technician, then shifted to
mechanical and heavy commercial industrial contracting.
Roach led contractor sales before ultimately running
wholesale distribution branches in Dallas, Florida and in
Houston before joining Winsupply this year.
"We're very fortunate to have Vince and Cory and the rest of
their talented team join Winsupply," Gordon said. "They have
great relationships with contractors in their market already
and now have the support of a $3 billion company to help
them achieve their dream of business ownership."
In the Winsupply co-ownership business model, Winsupply Inc.
has majority equity in each of its locations while the local
company presidents and sometimes employees own substantial
equity. Roach and Teague have each invested in equity in the
Roach said, "Being an owner of my own company is what
separates Winsupply from everybody else. Going to work for
another supply house didn't (appeal to) me and is the reason
I chose to be here. Treating this company as my own is
completely different. I've opened branches before but this
is special knowing it's mine."
Winsupply provides its local company locations purchasing
power, distribution and other support services such as
business consulting, accounting, payroll, IT and marketing.
The centralized support allows local operators to focus on
their customers, local markets and products.
