West Point, MS, April 6, 2018– In 1997, Christee Holbrook joined the team at Graham Roofing, Inc. (GRI) as a temporary accountant and later was hired in a full time accounting position.  Christee’s level of responsibility has grown as the company has grown since joining in the 90s including her most recent role as Chief Operating Officer.  Holbrook officially stepped into her new role of President and CEO in March of 2018, when Bobby Hooks, one of the original founding members of GRI, officially retired.  Along with Holbrook, two other team members have become managing partners and stepped into new roles - Suzanne Richardson now serves as Vice President and CFO along with Jonathan Poland serving as Vice President and Branch Manager of Tupelo Operations. 

Graham Roofing has grown to be one of the strongest commercial and industrial roofing firms in the Deep South.  Founded in the late 60’s, by Jimmy Graham, Bobby Hooks and Clyde Hollis, Graham Roofing served as a way for the trio to make money during college at Mississippi State.  Holbrook will be the first President and CEO that is not a member of the founding team.  In its 50th year celebration, Holbrook plans to continue the company’s tradition of staying on the cutting edge of the roofing industry.

“I chose Christee Holbrook, Suzanne Richardson, and Jonathan Poland to lead Graham Roofing into the future. I knew GRI would have a leadership team with vision, integrity, and professionalism. Having over fifty combined years at GRI, there was no doubt they would use our history as their foundation, along with their fresh vision for direction and their faith to take Graham Roofing into its next generation of success,” stated Bobby Hooks in his retirement remarks to the GRI team.

The corporate office remains located in West Point, MS along with a satellite office in Tupelo, MS.  After five decades of service, Graham Roofing boosts a large database of loyal customers.  With most company leads coming from referrals, the team takes customer care very seriously.  Graham Roofing also prides itself on employee retention with multiple team members boosting 20, 30, or 45+ years’ service with the company.  GRI has created a ‘culture of excellence’ that they know separates them from their competition.

Since 1968, Graham Roofing has used top of the line materials, state-of-the-art equipment, award winning safety standards, experience, professionalism and integrity to service commercial and industrial roofing to business and industry throughout the Southeast.  Services provided include new roofing installations including modified bitumen, asphalt / build-up (BUR), EPDM rubber, TPO and metal roof systems with long term warranties up to 30 years.  They also provide re-roofing services, roof repair, annual inspection and maintenance and emergency services.  They are licensed and bonded in Mississippi, Tennessee and Alabama.  Raise your roofing quality and partner with Graham Roofing on your next industrial or commercial project.
