McCoy’s Building Supply names new General Counsel, VP of Information Services
McCoy’s Building Supply recently announced a new hire and a promotion to its Executive Team.
Bane Phillippi has been appointed General Counsel of the Texas-based lumber dealer. Phillippi, a graduate of Texas A&M University and Baylor University School of Law, will be responsible for all legal matters for McCoy Corporation and its related entities. He will oversee McCoy’s transactional and litigation needs and allow it to continue to grow its already robust regulatory compliance capabilities.
“Our search for a General Counsel was very thorough. It was important that we find someone with the legal skills that matched our needs, and even more important that the individual fit into our culture,” said Kent Williams, Vice President of Human Resources and People Development. “Bane has a great legal background and a unique ability to relate with people in a manner that blends well with who we are as a company.”
Phillippi has more than 17 years of experience in transactional, regulatory compliance and litigation matters. He began his career with Haynes and Boone, LLP, where he primarily served business clients in regulatory compliance and transactional matters. In 2012, he joined Weisbart Springer Hayes, LLP as a litigation attorney advising a broad range of clients with a particular focus on litigating business matters in state and federal court.
“We are thrilled to bring Bane on board as General Counsel. He has worked with McCoy’s in the past as outside counsel and understands our industry so well,” said Meagan McCoy Jones, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “We look forward to utilizing Bane’s legal and regulatory expertise to increase McCoy’s industry impact as we grow as a company.”
Corum Appointed Vice President of Information Service
McCoy’s also announced the appointment of Joanne Corum as Vice President of Information Services. Corum had previously served as the company’s Director of Information Services since April 2016.
Corum, a graduate of the University of Texas with a degree in Electrical Engineering, worked for more than 10 years at IBM and Applied Materials before coming to McCoy’s. “Joanne has demonstrated her project management expertise as a key leader in a number of major projects such as our disaster recovery upgrade and logistics software pilot,” said Dennis Strong, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer.
“We knew we needed to make some key hires from outside McCoy’s as we continued to grow. Joanne is one of those leaders,” shared McCoy Jones. “After several years of searching for the right combination of technical and information services skills plus the right heart and caring for others, we met Joanne. Her promotion is a critical step in our future.”
In her new role, Corum will be responsible for all facets of the Information Services Department at McCoy’s and will serve as a member of the Executive Team. “The most critical success factor for an IT organization is to have a strong partnership with our users. The partnership at McCoy’s is amazing,” explained Corum. “We are truly one team and that environment enables faster, targeted progress. I’m thrilled to be a part of such an aligned culture.”
“Joanne’s promotion is a natural step in the process of identifying the next generation of leaders at McCoy’s,” said Brian McCoy, President and CEO. “She is a talented, engaging and caring leader and we’re proud to have her on our Executive Team.”
