John Hunt

Contractor Sales

John started in the construction business as a laborer working his way through college. After graduating from Virginia Tech in the late 1970's, he began working at 84 Lumber in Amherst County and worked his way to co-manager. John then moved to Charlottesville, working for several building supply companies, specializing in estimating and purchasing. With over 30 years of experience under his belt, John made his move to J. S. Purcell Lumber in 2003. John enjoys his work and feels that J. S. Purcell's is large enough to be price competitive, yet small enough to give individualized and personalized service.
