House-Hasson Hardware Co. has promoted Taylor Hasson to vice president of strategic retail management. Hasson is the son of the late Don Hasson, former House-Hasson company president and CEO, and has served for 13 years as marketing manager and vice president of marketing for the company.
In his new role, Hasson will work with the company’s more than 2,500 dealers, helping them increase their profitability by strategically managing retail pricing and price sensitivity within the many markets served by House-Hasson.
“Our goal is dealer profitability, and Taylor’s deep knowledge of retail pricing and systems used by our dealers will be of great value to them,” says Steve Henry, House-Hasson president and CEO. “Taylor has personal relationships with many of our dealers. He knows their stores, their communities and retail pricing and management. He’s going to be a huge asset for our dealers and their bottom lines.”
Hasson says the most important aspect of his new role is being able to improve dealers’ margins by working directly with them and applying data, analysis and targeted plans for their respective regional markets.
“As well as increasing dealers’ margins, we’ll be looking at other aspects of their businesses in terms of retail pricing strategies and programs, point-of-sale systems and other improvements we can recommend to make dealers more successful operationally and financially,” Hasson says. “I find this new role both a challenge and an opportunity to help our dealers improve their profitability.”
House-Hasson also recently named a new vice president of human resources Lysette Aviles. Read more about Aviles’ promotion here.
