Former founder and CEO David Berman named executive vice president of Northern California online home improvement pioneer

"Our whole team is thrilled that David has agreed to return to an active role within Build.com," said Christian Friedland, President of Build.com.

Build.com, Inc., No. 97 Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide, announced today the appointment of David Berman as executive vice president.

In addition to his direct responsibility for sourcing, vendor brand development and business development, Berman will hold a key role in helping to strategize the next stage of growth for Build.com, the leading online merchant of home improvement products.

Berman was co-founder and CEO of Decorative Product Source (DPS), the industry’s first online merchant of decorative home products until 2009, when its relationship with Build.com changed via their now-common parent, UK-based Wolseley PLC. Prior to that, Berman was a principal and CEO of Ral Supply Group, a multi-branch wholesale distributor and two-time winner of the “Wholesaler of the Year” award by Supply House Times magazine.

“Our whole team is thrilled that David has agreed to return to an active role within Build.com,” said Chris Friedland, President of Build.com. “His industry experience with all the channels of distribution, his industry relationships, his record of innovation and his ability to see future trends make David a key participant in developing and executing the strategic plan for our next stage of growth.”
