Mill Creek Lumber & Supply’s Jim and Jeff Dunn were selected as the LBM Journal’s 2006 Entrepreneur of the Year. Each year the LBM Journal considers hundreds of dealers from across the United States for this award. The LBJ Journal is a unique monthly magazine that is focused on strategies and profits for lumber and building material dealers.
“Jim and Jeff Dunn are the kind of guys that business books are written about. I’m proud to honor them and Mill Creek Lumber & Supply,” said Rick Schumacher, the editor and publisher for LMB Journal.
“The LBM Journal recognized the value of what Mill Creek has accomplished over the last couple years and we are extremely grateful for this award,” said Mill Creek’s Lumber & Supply CEO and President Jeff Dunn.
“With our pictures on the cover, it is easy for us to ‘grab the glory’ in circumstances such as this, but it is really the Mill Creek employees that earned this honor and should be the ones who are congratulated,” said Dunn. “We owe each and every one of them a heartfelt ‘thank you’ for their contribution to Mill Creek and for their efforts in making this possible.”
