2019 Ken Hendricks Award Winners Exemplify Excellence
These Associates Live ABC Supply’s Values, Put Contractors First
Chris Schrage, managing partner of our West Allis, Wisconsin, branch and Mark Briggs, manager of our Rocky Mountain District, are this year’s deserving recipients.
Chris Schrage has been with ABC Supply since 1984, just two years after its founding. Chris was a well-loved
branch manager in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, and later on became the Midwest Region fleet and operations manager.
He is known for his roll-up-the-sleeves and teach-by-example attitude, his quiet commitment to giving back and
his focus on helping his coworkers succeed. For the last 15 years, Chris has led the branch in West Allis, Wisconsin.
Chris has always looked up to Ken Hendricks and can often be heard quoting him to his team.
Mark Briggs has been with ABC Supply since 1996 when he went from running his own roofing business to managing
the company’s Lake Havasu City, Arizona, branch. Mark’s personal experience in roofing has served him well in
knowing what kind of service his customers at ABC Supply need, while mirroring the values that Ken was known for
championing. As the Rocky Mountain District manager, Mark has made a name for himself with his extensive
knowledge of the business, his phenomenal mentorship and feedback, and his willingness to crack a joke or flash a
smile. Mark welcomes all of his associates and every contractor he meets as if they’re family.
“Mark and Chris have demonstrated the character that is true to the Core Values that Ken championed,” said President and CEO Keith Rozolis. “Their drive both professionally and personally is contagious, and they are proof that every person has within themselves the ability to do great things, both at and away from work.”
ABC Supply Chairman Diane Hendricks added, “These two deserving award recipients truly symbolize what ABC was built upon, proven by their accomplishments throughout the years. They are dedicated to preserving ABC’s Core Values and exemplify passion for their associates, customers and the communities in which they serve.”
