Who We Are


Mark Barnard has been a valued member of the lumber and building materials (LBM) industry for over 35 years. His experience ranges from all levels of sales and management to CEO with a reputation of leading through innovation. In 2004 he committed to filling a need in the LBM community for a Best-in-Class, honest and hardworking recruiting firm specializing in the building supply sector, but diverse in the professions and talents targeted. He created a strong, people-oriented business following the advice of a mentor at Georgia-Pacific, “surround yourself with the best people”. Mark has consistently done this through inclusive company culture and respect of his employees who strive every day to do better than the day before. Promoting community service, such as SnapDragon’s annual donations to local charities, participation in national and international mission trips, and internships, all enhance the belief of sharing. He has created a “family” business, where all four of his children and wife have contributed to the company’s success, with large business achievements. His oldest daughter, Cassie, continues to work at SnapDragon, recently becoming its vice president and upholding the tradition of innovation and positive results that SnapDragon has always been known for.
