Today, 84 Lumber operates more than 250 stores, component manufacturing plants, custom door shops, custom millwork shops, and engineered wood products centers in 30 states, representing the nation’s top markets.

Women Executives in Building is an important series that reaches women in the C-suite in the built environment,” says Lakisha A.
