Chris Borrego is the Chief Executive Officer and President of Builders with locations in Colorado and Nebraska. He is a native of Colorado who has spent 30 years in the LBM industry beginning in Arizona while still in high school. He continued in the industry working his way through college earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Business at the University of Nevada at Reno.
He has worked for a wide variety of dealers in his career managing sales teams, lumberyards, home centers, and millwork and truss operations. This experience has taught him how to handle the unique challenges and opportunities in our industry. Chris recognizes that his ability to grow was fostered by the great companies and leaders that invested time to develop his skill sets and presented him with growth opportunities. He welcomes the opportunity to give back to our industry and feels a strong obligation to help prepare the future generation for their roles in leadership.
He has worked in the majority of the markets that the MSLBMDA are present including a couple of terms in Arizona, New Mexico and currently Colorado with close ties to several dealers in Wyoming. Chris recently relocated to Aurora, Colorado with his wife Kristin and their children. Admittedly a poor golfer and fishermen, he does enjoy many great opportunities the Rocky Mountain States present.
