The CEO of American Builders & Contractors (ABC) Supply Co. began his career at Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in Akron, Ohio. Keith Rozolis left Firestone and joined Maaco Enterprises, the leading auto painting and bodywork franchise at the time. From there, he and some friends struck out and started an automotive franchise business. In 1992, he returned to Bridgestone/Firestone where he led several initiatives, including directing tire marketing, spearheading efforts in store branding, process improvement, and collaborative internet strategies. In 1999, he joined ABC Supply as the company’s Vice President of Strategic Marketing and Planning. In succeeding years, he served as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “Attending Kellogg has had a tremendous impact on my life,” says Keith, “and I am proud to be an alumnus of such a wonderful institution.”
Keith has been happily married to Linda for 26 years. They have three children, Alexandra (Alix), Erik and Chris. His oldest son Erik is a graduate of Big 10 rival Purdue University. His son Chris, currently attends Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering, and daughter Alix will be attending Northwestern’s Pritzker School of Law this coming fall.
"There is not a course I took at Kellogg that hasn’t helped me or had a direct impact on my career."
