Mule-Hide Products Co. Promotes Derek Govan to West Region Director

Mule-Hide Products Co. Inc., manufacturer of low-slope roofing systems and products, has promoted Derek Govan to West Region director.

A roofing industry veteran of more than 25 years, he had served as territory manager for the company’s Rocky Mountain territory since 2019.

In his new role, Govan will be responsible for achieving regional sales goals and will lead the region’s team of territory managers, who are the company’s primary points of contact with contractors, property managers, specifiers and roofing materials distributors. The West region includes Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

Govan came to Mule-Hide Products from B.R. McCracken Co. in Arvada, Colorado, where he sold low-slope and steep-slope roofing products. Prior to that, he was a superintendent with Pridemark Homes in Denver.

“When Derek joined Mule-Hide, he took over a well-established territory. Under his direction, it continued to grow every year,” said Mule-Hide Products Managing Director Dan Williams. “The key to that success was his ability to form strong partnerships with our contractors and distributors throughout the territory. We look forward to having him bring that leadership to the entire West region.”
