Jimmy Bowes

Jimmy Bowes is president of the Worthington Enterprises Building Products business unit responsible for the growth and profitability of the segment’s portfolio of wholly owned and joint-venture businesses. Bowes became president in December 2023 after a successful five-year tenure as vice president and general manager of North American Building Products. Under his leadership, the segment achieved record profit growth via implementation of Worthington's transformation playbook across operations, supply chain and commercial functions as well as driving new product development investments that positively differentiated the Company and entered it into new markets such as adhesives, foam and telemetry.

Prior to his leadership responsibilities in Building Products, Bowes served the Company in various capacities in the Worthington Cylinders business. As director of Finance and Strategy, he led the due diligence and integration of Amtrol into the organization. This was the largest acquisition in the Company’s history at the time. Bowes led several transformational efforts throughout Worthington Cylinders, including initiatives that produced the development and implementation of the division’s first pricing desk along with many other metrics and functions. He joined the Company in 2009 in corporate accounting before earning increased responsibilities in Finance and Transformation within Worthington Cylinders. Bowes earned his bachelor’s degree of science in business administration from Ohio University.

He is an active member in his community, including shared leadership responsibilities of 3rd & Goal Foundation that helps support local veterans in need. Bowes resides in Dublin, Ohio, with his wife Mollie and their three children.
