US LBM President Named Entrepreneur Of The Year 2023 Southeast Award Winner

Ernst & Young (EY US) announced that US LBM president and CEO L.T. Gibson was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2023 Southeast Award winner. The Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program is one of the preeminent competitive awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. Gibson was selected by an independent judging panel of previous award winners, leading CEOs, investors and other regional business leaders. The candidates were evaluated based on their demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.

US LBM was founded by Gibson in 2009 with 13 locations and 500 associates. Today the company is one of the nation’s largest building materials distributors, employing nearly 14,000 associates across more than 450 locations nationwide.

“The success of US LBM over the past 14 years is due to the efforts of our incredible associates, whose dedication continues to earn the trust and respect of our customers and suppliers and drives us forward each and every day,” Gibson says. “I am incredibly proud of the role we play in building homes and neighborhoods across the country while creating rewarding careers, furthering sustainability and giving back to our communities.”

For nearly four decades, EY US has honored entrepreneurs whose ambition, courage and ingenuity have driven their companies’ success, transformed their industries and made a positive impact on their communities. Entrepreneur Of The Year Award winners become lifetime members of a global, multi-industry community of entrepreneurs, with exclusive, ongoing access to the experience, insight and wisdom of program alumni and other ecosystem members in over 60 countries—all supported by vast EY resources. Since 1986, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program has recognized more than 11,000 U.S. executives.

As a Southeast award winner, Gibson is now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2023 National Awards. The National Award winners—including the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner—will be announced in November at the Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies. The Entrepreneur Of the Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the World Entrepreneur Of The Year® Award in June 2024.
