McCoy’s Names New President, Celebrates Historic Retirement

Meagan McCoy Jones will now serve as president and chief operating officer (COO) of McCoy’s Building Supply, the company has announced.

Previously, McCoy Jones served as executive vice president and COO.

“Meagan continues to take on more of the leadership and strategic planning of McCoy’s Building Supply, and her promotion to president is a natural next step in our planning for both the family and the company,” says Brian McCoy, chairman and CEO of the company.

Additionally, Reid McCoy, Brian McCoy’s son, joined the company’s board of directors as the vice chair. Dennis Strong and John Meeks, former senior vice presidents for the company, also joined as new members of the board.

A Historic Retirement

Chuck Churchwell, former McCoy’s Building Supply chief financial officer (CFO) and board member, retired Jan. 1, after 48 years with the company.

A native of Luling, Texas, Churchwell began his career with the company while working at stores in Austin and Brazoria, Texas. He later transferred to the company’s headquarters and held several roles over his career, including personnel manager and buyer, before joining the accounting department.

In the early 1990s, Churchwell became McCoy’s CFO and later became vice president of the company, the first person to hold that position outside the McCoy family. During his time in that role, McCoy’s Building Supply reached a milestone of half a billion dollars in sales in 1999.

“McCoy’s Building Supply simply wouldn’t be where we are today without Chuck. He is one of the most trustworthy, enduring and hardworking leaders our company has ever known. Chuck was always there to support our executive team and me with his willing spirit and intense resolve,” says Brian McCoy, CEO of McCoy’s Building Supply. “His embrace of our Business As UnUsual (BAU) training strongly influenced our company culture at a time when we desperately needed to learn how to serve our customers, teams and one another.”

In 2001, Churchwell was promoted to executive vice president and joined the board of directors. He stepped down in 2013 to focus exclusively on his board of directors position.

“Retiring from the company is definitely an emotional time in my life. I have nothing but positive thoughts about the future of McCoy’s,” says Churchwell. “I’m excited about Meagan McCoy Jones’ role as president and COO and with Reid McCoy becoming vice chair of the board of directors, McCoy’s future is brighter than ever.”
