Prime Chief of Staff is hiring an

Administrative Manager, Office of the CEO with Elite Roofing Supply

Glendale, United States
Elite Roofing Supply is a locally owned, independent supplier of roofing materials and supplies. Founded in early 2013, during a time of nationwide consolidation among roofing distributors, a group of seasoned distributor professionals decided to go against the trend and start a local, manager-owned distributorship called Elite Roofing Supply. The founding partners felt customers would appreciate a distributor where the managers are owners and therefore understand what it’s like to run a business. They also felt customers were eager to work face-to-face with owners at a local level rather than having to call a corporate office hundreds or thousands of miles away.
This model has made Elite Roofing Supply a standout business that has achieved very strong growth while building a strong people-focused work culture. The Elite team is excited to bring on exceptional talent with a strong work ethic and guardianship mentality to carry them through their next phase of growth.
Elite exists to create opportunities for people who are looking for growth and continuous improvement, not just employment. To learn more about Elite Roofing Supply and their team visit:
