Progressive Roofing is proud to be part of the new McKinnon School of Management building at the University of New Mexico.  The new school sits where the old west wing of the Anderson School of Management was, which is at 1920 Las Lomas Rd. NE, Albuquerque, NM 87106. This new addition to the University of New Mexico was named after Ian McKinnon. His donation of $7.5 million was the single highest donation by a living individual in the university’s history. This generous gift was donated specifically to the Anderson School, WisePies Arena and the tennis complex. [i]
