Brian Torry has over 35 years’ experience in wholesale building materials distribution. After initially entering the roofing industry, Brian quickly progressed from salesman to branch manager. Not long after, he was named partner and VP of the Western Region for the 5th largest distributor in the United States.

Years later, Brian and his partners opened ERS in April 2013. Their vision was to build a sustainable, independent distribution business in key markets, utilizing local distribution experts. As a matter of fact, Brian is responsible for creating the vision for Elite’s growth strategy.
