M-D Building Products, Inc. Chairman of the Board Loren Plotkin and the board of directors are pleased to announce the following senior leadership changes effective immediately. M-D Building Products President Ryan Plotkin has been promoted to chief executive officer and president, effective May 1, 2023. Loren Plotkin, current chairman and CEO, will continue to serve as chairman of the board. 

This year, Loren celebrates his 40th year with M-D, where he has served as president and/or CEO since 2000. M-D has positively changed and grown in numerous facets over the past four decades while remaining true to its core values of investing in its people and remaining a strong domestic manufacturer. Loren enthusiastically noted that M-D’s current strong leadership will continue to build on that growth and the fundamental culture that makes the longtime company a great supplier and employer. 

Ryan joined M-D in 2008 and has held various roles during his tenure including global business manager, vice president of operations and chief operating officer. Ryan has served as president of M-D since 2021 and is well positioned for the additional responsibilities of the chief executive officer. 

“As part of the family ownership of M-D, I am deeply committed to the long-term growth of the company,” said Ryan. “The people and process investment will always be at the center of what we do. I am humbled to continue the preservation and enhancement of our current culture to ensure the goals are consistently aligned with our vision and mission."

Additionally, Josh Plotkin has rejoined M-D as executive vice president after earning a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of South Carolina. Josh is excited to continue working alongside his brother Ryan in a senior leadership role focused on supporting M-D’s strategic goals.  

“We are very fortunate to have ‘new’ family leadership that is passionate about M-D and wants to carry on the legacy and foundation that have been built for us,” said Jim Webb, an M-D board member. “I look forward to watching the company’s continued success through Ryan and Josh’s leadership and the company’s talented team.”

“On behalf of the entire Plotkin Family, we appreciate the hard work and efforts of every team member. Each person has a role in building a sustainable and fulfilling future for M-D Building Products. We believe that being a strong, private family-owned business allows us to build on our long-term relationships with our customers and employees across the U.S. and Canada. I am excited to support the business and its leaders as it continues to grow and thrive in the years to come," said Loren Plotkin.
