“The product innovations Malarkey Roofing Products has introduced to the market in the last year have exceeded our expectations in terms of performance, sustainability and value to our customers,” said Malarkey. “I am proud to assume this position within the company that my grandfather started in 1956, and humbled to lead an organization staffed with enthusiastic, dedicated, and talented individuals. Rushing’s appointment as chief operating officer is a testament to those traits, and I look forward to working alongside him as we continue to pioneer advancements in the roofing industry.”
Malarkey most recently served as senior vice president at the company, where he led several key industry innovations such as The Zone® nailing area, Highlander® NEX® and Vista® polymer modified asphalt shingles, and the industry’s first smog-reducing shingle.

He is the only two-time winner of the Outstanding Service Award from Western States Roofing Contractors Association.
