Veterans are an important part of the Builders FirstSource team. We're proud to work with members of the military community at every level of our organization from coast to coast. May is Military Appreciation month, and we wanted to take the opportunity to honor, recognize, remember, and celebrate the brave men and women who have served, or are currently serving, our country. We are extremely fortunate to have them on our team, and we are actively recruiting more veterans to join us!

We're proud to share a few of the our veterans' stories. 


Sales Specialist
West Valley, UT

Jordan Matkin has been in the Utah Army National Guard for 7 years and has also worked with Builders FirstSource for five years. He started thinking about it when he was playing with army soldier toys as a kid, but the idea started in earnest when his older brother joined the Marine Corps. He started out as an air traffic controller and is now a sergeant responsible for guiding a team and setting an example for them. He thought Builders FirstSource would be a good fit for him because he likes to be hands on and use military skills like communication and flexibility, and also because "there are companies that want to help you transition, and BFS is one of them."

Joseph Norris was a corporal in the Marine Corps from 2008-12, and when he found out how much Builders FirstSource was committed to veterans, he knew this is where he wanted to be. "They go above and beyond the call of duty, which means a lot." He joined the company in August 2021. As a squad leader, he helped his team develop leadership skills, self-education and field training. That leadership experience is something he continues to bring to his job everyday by focusing on a positive attitude and continue working until his job is done.

Operations Manager in Training
Rapid City, SD

Ethan Wentzel's grandfather served in World War II, and Wentzel followed in his footsteps by spending nearly a decade in the Air Force. As a staff sergeant in security forces, he led a group of anywhere from 5 - 25 people. When he was getting close to leaving the Air Force, he found Builders FirstSource through the Department of Defense's SkillBridge program. His father built houses for several years, and Wentzel has always been interested in the construction industry, so it was a good fit. The skills he learned in the Air Force, such as attention to detail, customer service, and teamwork are helping him in his new career at Builders FirstSource.
