CLEVELAND, OH -- Keene Family of Companies recently welcomed Rebecca Turbeville. Turbeville joins Keene Building Products as the regional manager for Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and southern Virginia. After graduating from SUNY Plattsburgh, she made her way to Raleigh, NC, to work for Kenseal, a division 7 distributor (White Cap). Turbeville spent 2 1/2 years as a specification consultant for ACO, Inc., where she gained valuable experience and knowledge within the design community.
Now, she enjoys the best of both worlds in her role as regional manager. She hunts down the job, pushes the spec and follows it through to the contractor. She likes to fully “own” a project and is passionate about the industry. “It’s always the people that make the difference, from customers to colleagues,” she said. “Keene has been the company I’ve been looking for, as far as a perfect fit for me and I’m so glad to be here.”
Turbeville loves the fact that her days are never the same and prides herself on her technical knowledge and experience in distribution. She finds that the relationships she has built within the construction industry have been the most important and rewarding aspect of her career.
Currently, Turbeville lives in South Carolina with her husband, Scott, and their kids, Victoria (9) and Jonathan David (4 months). In her free time, she loves spending time with family, attending any kind of sporting event, enjoys live music, and anything on the lake or at the beach.
