ABC Supply Co., Inc. Announces Winners of 2023 Ken Hendricks Award

James Crawford and Chuck Morgan receive the company’s highest honor

BELOIT, Wis. — June 13, 2023 — ABC Supply Co., Inc., the largest wholesale distributor of roofing and other select exterior and interior building products in North America, is pleased to announce two associates as recipients of the company’s annual Ken Hendricks Award. As the most prestigious honor in the company, this award is given in honor of ABC Supply’s late co-founder and recognizes associates who demonstrate a commitment to the company’s character and its seven Core Values.

The 2023 Ken Hendricks Award recipients are James “Jamie” Crawford from Salisbury, Maryland, and Charles “Chuck” Morgan from Lynchburg, Virginia.

“Jamie and Chuck are impactful leaders who have continuously shown their dedication, commitment and desire to support their associates and their communities,” says Keith Rozolis, president and CEO of ABC Supply. “They are a testament to the character and Core Values of our company.”

“These two gentlemen exemplify the type of character Ken championed,” says ABC Supply Chairman Diane Hendricks. “I’m proud of Jamie and Chuck for receiving this well-deserved honor. Their passion and drive for supporting their fellow associates, making our company better and our customers happy, and keeping their communities great places to live is evident, and I thank them for that.”

James “Jamie” Crawford began his tenure at ABC Supply in 2010, when the company acquired Bradco Supply, a building materials distributor where he was branch manager. A year after the acquisition, Crawford was made a managing partner at ABC Supply, and he was inducted into the President’s Club in 2014. Under his leadership, the Salisbury, Maryland, location has been awarded Center of the Year for 11 straight years — eight of those at the Diamond level. Crawford’s servant leadership is evident in the consistent mentorship he offers his associates and peers, as well as his many contributions to causes and charities in his community.

Charles “Chuck” Morgan joined ABC Supply in 1987, when he was hired as a delivery driver for the company’s Norfolk, Virginia, branch. In his 36 years with the company, he’s become a branch manager, led his Lynchburg, Virginia, location in becoming a Gold Center of the Year for five straight years, been named a managing partner and been inducted into ABC Supply’s President’s Club. Morgan’s leadership can be seen in the long tenure of many of his associates, the respect and care he has for his customers, and the entrepreneurial spirit he embodies to ensure success for not only his location, but the entire company.

Crawford and Morgan will be recognized at ABC Supply’s annual Founders’ Celebration picnic in September at the company’s National Support Center in Beloit, Wisconsin. To learn more about the Ken Hendricks Award, visit
