Employee Spotlight: Brock Welker
Growing up in Coon Rapids, MN seems like every kid wants to be a big league baseball player. Shortly after realizing this was not in the cards for me I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. I spent my first two years traveling the world with the majority in the far east regions as an Air Defense Controller. I ended up in 29 Palms California as Senior crew chief of over 1000 square mile of live fire training area helping to prepare men and women from all branches of the military for conflicts in the more desert regions of the middle east and Afghanistan. While rewarding and proud to serve I knew it wasn’t my calling.
After returning home, I quickly became involved in the building materials industry. With a strong family background, I joined the Country Lumber team in 2005 shortly after relocating to the area and newly married. Ten years plus of working as Yard personnel, Driver, Dispatcher, prepared me for a new adventure in sales. My current position here is rewarding as I help contractors and homeowners bring their projects to life by supplying them with the materials, planning and advice to get what they need when they need it.
I currently live in Albertville, MN with my wife and three very busy kids. Every day is a whole new adventure with them involved in so many activities.
