Hillman Solutions Corp. promoted Jon Michael “JMA” Adinolfi to the newly created position of chief operating officer. Adinolfi, who has served as a divisional president of Hillman U.S. since 2019, will expand his role as COO to oversee Hillman’s Hardware Solutions, Protective Solutions and Canadian business segments.
“JMA has been an invaluable strategic partner to me and our leadership team during his time at Hillman,” says Doug Cahill, Hillman’s chairman and CEO. “JMA’s demonstrated ability to execute Hillman’s business strategy, build relationships with our key customers and manage operational complexity make him the perfect choice to be our COO. He has earned this promotion with his work ethic and customer-first attitude, both of which exemplify Hillman’s culture and core values.”
In other management changes, Scott Ride, president, Hillman Canada, will begin leading Hillman’s Industrial Solutions business throughout North America in addition to his current role of leading Hillman Canada. In his expanded role, Ride will report to Adinolfi.
“During his eight-plus years with Hillman Canada, Scott has overseen consistent growth in both revenues and profitability in that segment,” Cahill says. “Our Canadian business has a meaningful industrial business, which we believe we can establish and grow in the U.S. Scott’s breadth of knowledge and experience make him a great fit for this role as we seek to grow our market share among the fragmented industrial business in the U.S.”
