Meet Scott Huguely, Head of DC Sales

Our Team is what keeps the gears turning at National Lumber. As such, it’s our pleasure to get to highlight the fantastic people who work for our company. Today, we’d like to introduce to you all Scott Huguely, head of our DC Sales Division.

With the opening of our new DC metro area location in Chevy Chase, we wanted to bring in an expert team to meet the needs of our clients in that market. We’re excited to have Scott Huguely, an industry veteran, as the leader of our DC Sales Division.

About Scott

Scott’s industry ties are significant as a fourth-generation lumber supplier. His family started Galliher & Huguely, a DC-based lumberyard in 1912. Scott began working for the family company in 1994 and has provided expert service ever since. When the local institution closed its doors in March of this year, Scott knew he wanted to work with another company that has ties to the local community as opposed to a larger chain. He admired that National Lumber was also a family-owned business and was excited to come on as a team member thanks to a long relationship with the Fruman family. This family environment extends to the whole National Lumber team and helps strengthen the relationships that are formed with all clients that come through the door.

The Impact of National Lumber in the DC Area

Scott is excited to help increase the awareness of National Lumber as a building material supplier in the DMV area. While the company has been prevalent in the area, the DC metro market is an ever-changing and growing area, and Scott is looking forward to seeing how National Lumber can continue to meet the increasing demand from builders, general contractors, and homeowners in the region.

He’s also eager to promote some of the industry-leading products National Lumber has to offer, such as Marvin Windows and Trex Decking. These two brands are in high demand across the DC market. He brings his veteran-expertise to every project, ensuring builders are selecting the products that are perfect for them.

Getting to Know Scott

Outside of work, Scott’s dedication to family continues. He loves spending time with his wife Jenny and their three children Michael, Nicholas, and Megan. Before he began work in the lumber industry, Scott had aspirations to become a sports broadcaster and his love of sports continues to this day. Scott is an avid golfer, and a life-long DC sports fan. He also cheers for his beloved UNC Tarheels. Don’t hesitate to bring him your sports hot takes when you drop in to the Design Center in Chevy Chase. On summer vacation, you’re likely to find him in Bethany Beach.

Welcome to National Lumber, Scott!

The entire team is honored to welcome Scott Huguely into the fold. We look forward to the veteran presence, industry-knowledge, and dedication he brings to each interaction with a customer. Contact Scott and the DC team today to get started on your next project.
