Do it Best Corp. has named its director of merchandising strategy and execution with the promotion of veteran product manager Todd Miller, effective immediately.
“We’ve been continuously focused on leveraging our agility and strengths to fuel even more growth for our member-owners,” says Dent Johnson, Do it Best vice president of merchandising. “Our data-driven approach to assortment planning and providing our members with the right mix of products are delivering exceptional results already. We’re excited to have Todd step into this
important leadership role to build on that momentum. His depth of experience in conducting line reviews, developing acquisition strategies, building vendor relationships and delivering with excellence will help us drive more growth.”
Miller, who most recently served as the company’s merchandise manager for plumbing, has more than 25 years of industry experience. He joined Do it Best in 1997 as an associate merchandise manager in plumbing before being promoted to merchandise manager of housewares and cleaning in 2003. In 2008, he returned to lead the plumbing department through the impacts of low lead requirements and the tremendous PVC supply chain disruptions brought on by more recent factory closures, catastrophic ice storms and raw material shortages.
In this new role, Miller will be responsible for the development and deployment of the company’s category management strategies, overseeing assortment planning, pricing and training and development teams.
“I’m ready to apply my extensive experience and product expertise to serve our team and our members even better,” says Miller. “And I’m excited by the opportunities this move will bring to further drive our strategic growth.”
