Long Island Sales Chris Christopher Champagne

Christopher joined Liberty Cedar in 1997, the early days, as a driver and member of the yard team. Christopher took on the challenge of becoming the first member of the inside sales support team. Enjoying sales, Christopher jumped at the chance to take on an outside sales position in both Cape Cod and Southeastern Massachusetts.

Successfully building these territories, Christopher recognized additional challenges in building the Long Island, NY territory. Today, working with some of the most successful and talented builders and architects, Christopher has built Long Island into Liberty Cedar’s largest territory. In addition, Christopher is often specifying species and providing support to builders working on high profile historical projects in and around the New York City and Long Island areas.

A former Marine, Christopher spends the little free time he finds racing sailboats, golfing, fishing and being dad to two teenagers. Finally, he has been known to fry delicious turkeys for the entire Liberty Cedar team.

Bryan Glemboski

With Liberty Cedar for more than a decade, Bryan has worked in the yard and as a sales representative on Cape Cod. Today, he is our key estimator. Bryan continues as the office go to person when questions arise about various species of wood and require an expert. Self-taught, Bryan is adept at identifying species, genus and family of specialty woods for both customers and colleagues alike.

"My interest in lumber is a natural extension from my love for plants and wildlife. Every piece of wood we sell is unique, just like the trees they come from. Atlantic White Cedar is a very important species for boat builders, almost as important as it is for The Hessel's Hairstreak, a gorgeous green butterfly that lives only its upper branches. Wood is fascinating and there is always more to learn. I enjoy sharing what I know with others."

Bryan's other interests span a wide range from bird watching to glass blowing to playing the bass in a rock-n-roll band. And, if that isn't enough, Bryan is also the proud father to two lovely daughters.

Brock Goss

Brock Goss, along with partners Dave Goss and Joe Davies, founded Liberty Cedar in 1990.

"We started Liberty Cedar because we found ourselves challenged when trying to find the highest quality material, delivered in a timely manner, to complete the construction jobs we were managing."

We worked with our vendors to ensure that the materials they deliver to us met our quality standards. Long-time vendor relationships have paid off over the years. Our customers know that when vendors meet Liberty Cedar's expectations the material delivered to their jobsite will meet their standards ."

Brock's many years of lumber sales experience make him an excellent teacher for incoming sales staff and a mentor to members of the Liberty Cedar team. When Brock is not working alongside his brother, he can be found riding his motorcycle across the country or riding along roadways in foreign lands.

The building materials industry is constantly introducing new, innovative products and I enjoy finding the right opportunity to share that information with the people I meet."
