Orgill, Inc., the world’s largest independent hardlines distributor, has announced that members of its veteran executive team will have new responsibilities beginning January 2019.
Ron Beal, Orgill’s longtime chairman, president and CEO, will drop the president title, but remains the company’s chairman and chief executive officer.
Boyden Moore, who currently serves as Orgill’s general manager of retail, as well as president of the company’s subsidiary Tyndale Advisors, will assume the position of Orgill president.
Brett Hammers will become Orgill’s executive vice president of worldwide sales and supply chain. He will be responsible for all sales and product sourcing in support of Orgill’s U.S., Canadian and international customer base.
Eric Divelbiss will become executive vice president of finance and administration in addition to his current role as Orgill’s CFO.
“I’m very proud of what our team has achieved, and these changes will ensure a customer-focused continuity of leadership well into the future,” Beal says. “Boyden brings an extensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing independent retailers, and will add fresh ideas as to how we can best assist our customers to help them be successful. Brett and Eric add their years of experience in finding the best ways to support these efforts.”
Beal adds that this plan has been in the works for several years, and is part of an ongoing process designed to both provide for an orderly succession among Orgill’s management team and to maintain Orgill’s position among the most innovative companies in the industry.
“I am extremely humbled to be part of Orgill’s dynamic and dedicated team in this new role,” Moore says. “I look forward to continuing to work closely with Ron, Eric, Brett and the entire Orgill team to carry on Orgill’s long history of customer-centric service to independent home improvement retailers.”
“Orgill has always focused on the future, and these changes provide tangible evidence that our customers can rest assured that the company will continue to evolve while providing them with the same levels of quality, service and innovation they have come to expect,” Hammers adds.
