Our Foundation? A Cherished Family History Steeped in Roofing for More than 35 Years
The power of good people, good ideas, and good values, all working together are the bedrocks on which majority owner Carl Verble along with C. Michael Verble and Patrick R. Verble founded North American Roofing in 1979. These attributes are the keys to our sustained success and stellar customer satisfaction in both commercial and industrial roofing. Equal credit goes to the Verble family’s keen eye for mutual opportunities and their skillful touch at attracting and retaining a talented team.
Transforming Commercial Roofing
Back in the day, roofers churned through day laborers willing to take on the heat and harsh toil of installing or replacing commercial roofs. Turnover—if not always pride and expertise—ran high. By contrast, from the beginning, North American Roofing was built on a team and family model. Recruiting and hiring based on character, attitude, and integrity, the Verbles gathered together the sorts of people you’d hope would stand between your property and the relentless elements.
Soon after its founding, North American Roofing became a second home to a group of talented, tight-knit installers, project managers, salespeople, technicians, and managers. The company supported the team with solid training, first-rate tools, professionalism, and rewards for loyalty and a job well done.
Carl’s son, C. Michael Verble, joined North American Roofing in 1988 as Director of Sales. Under Mike’s leadership and through the vision and spirit of the entire Verble family, the company’s sales reached new heights. With this new sales success brought forth the next chapter of North American Roofing’s already rich history. In 1989, Mike Verble took the reins with pride, purchased the company from the family, and became North American Roofing’s sole owner as well as its new Chairman & CEO.
Early Success with Solid Growth
During Mike’s tenure as Chairman & CEO, North American Roofing earned a place among the Inc. 500 list of the “Top Ten Fastest-Growing Companies.” Firestone, propelled by our growth, also became the nation’s largest producer of single-ply roofing, crowning a classic win-win relationship.
The Tradition Continues
In 2003, Mike Verble’s son, Brian, joined North American Roofing’s management team, after holding positions in sales, product management, and installation. In 2007, Mike decided to remain the company’s Chairman while also selecting Brian to succeed him as CEO of North American Roofing Services, Inc.
Three generations in and under Brian’s leadership, North American Roofing continues to grow. By molding the expertise of his loyal, longtime employees with a strategic management team, Brian leads a company that combines the craftsmanship standards set so high by his grandfather Carl and his father, Mike.
Passing the Torch
With a long-standing conviction that we have the best employees in the industry, in 2012 North American Roofing made the decision to form an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). In recognition of our employees’ contributions, and to reward their loyalty, NAR restructured in a way that strengthened our company’s history and built on decades of solid success.
To say our company thrived as an ESOP during this time would be an understatement. Since 2012, our company’s growth plan led to the expansion of our national client base as well as our company’s valuation. In 2017, the board of directors appointed its former chief operating officer, Kelly Wade, as the company’s chief executive officer. Under her leadership, the success of our company led to the next phase of our company’s evolution.
New Owners, Same Goals
In 2018, North American Roofing announced the investment and new ownership by one of the nation’s leading lower middle market private equity firms, Silver Oak Services Partners, LLC. With a keen eye for technological innovation and such strong roots and vision in place, North American Roofing continues to be the most trusted and respected industrial and commercial roofing company in the U.S.
