Throwback Thursday: Ten years ago Steve Buckle was promoted to president of Sexton Group

Throwback Thursday is a regular weekly feature in which we dip into the archives of the Hardlines Weekly Report.

In our Jan. 27, 2014 issue of the Hardlines Weekly Report, we ran a story with the headline, “Sexton shuffle moves Buckle into president’s role.”

We reported that Buckle had joined the Sexton Group in 2006 as vice-president and in 2008 became VP and general manager. Before joining Sexton, Buckle had spent more than 20 years in the LBM industry, starting as a sales representative and moving his way up through sales and management. That included working as GM for CanWel in Quebec and as eastern Canadian division GM for Weyerhaeuser. In 2020, Buckle was named CEO of the Sexton Family of Companies.
