PrimeSource Brands CEO Tom Koos Named City of Hope Spirit of Life Honoree

The honor recognizes dedication to philanthropy and humanitarian accomplishments.

Based and residing in Dallas, Tom Koos, president and CEO of PrimeSource Brands, has been named a 2024 Spirit of Life® award recipient by City of Hope, one of the nation’s leading cancer and medical research centers.

“It is humbling to be honored by such an inspiring institution, whose researchers and medical professionals are making a difference in the lives of millions,” Koos said. “Cancer, diabetes, and other life-changing conditions touch each of us in some way. We are so grateful to the teams who fight these battles every day, giving patients and their families hope. Their dedication, compassion and advocacy are unparalleled.”

Koos joined PrimeSource Building Products as president and CEO in April 2018, bringing more than 35 years of global supply chain, distribution and consumer brand experience. In 2020, he became president and CEO of PrimeSource Brands, which was formed by the consolidation of Wolf Home Products, Dimora Brands and PrimeSource Building Products — whose industry-leading brands include Grip-Rite, Top Knobs, RailFX, Nationwide Industries and many others. PrimeSource Brands provides the building industry’s premier customer experience with the highest value products, brands and services.

The Spirit of Life® award is City of Hope’s highest honor, bestowed upon leaders in various categories of business, including construction; hardware and homebuilding; music, film and entertainment; fashion and retail; beauty; food; real estate, and many more.

Other honorees from the National Hardware/Homebuilding Industry this year include Jeff Lorberbaum, Chairman and CEO of Mohawk Industries, and Kevin Campbell, president of Moen Americas. They will be honored at the Spirit of Life® Golf Outing and Awards Reception at The Palms in Las Vegas, on Feb. 26, 2024, during Design & Construction Week. Throughout 2024, the honorees will bring members of the hardware/homebuilding industry together to benefit City of Hope.
