Union Partners Hires New VP

Written by Tim Triplett

Union Partners, the Chicago-based metals and logistics company, has hired Jay Ervin as vice president of business development. In this new role, Ervin will be responsible for managing the company’s sales, customer and prospect strategies, as well as strategic partnerships.

Ervin formerly held numerous sales and management roles in 14 years with Leeco Steel. “As we continue to expand our reach, it’s imperative for us to invest in talent that will support and drive our future growth. We have no doubt, with his demonstrated success and experience, that Jay will be able to accomplish this,” stated Union Partners co-founders Chris Hutter and Paul Douglass.

Ervin’s appointment comes on the heels of Union Partners’ acquisition of three steel service centers this year: Contractors Steel, Lamination Specialties and Maksteel.

Based in South Carolina, Ervin will be well positioned to further cultivate sales and support Union Partners’ customer base in the mid-Atlantic and southern regions, the company said.
