Do it Best Names Jared Hufford Director of Strategic Initiatives

Do it Best has named Jared Hufford to the role of director of strategic initiatives effective immediately. Hufford brings a wealth of experience to his new role, with a demonstrated history of success in the wholesale industry. His expertise spans various areas, including sales, retail, industrial distribution, sales operations and sales management.

Having joined Do it Best in 2004 as a project leader, Hufford previously served as the director of e-commerce for store operations and Epicor engagement, as well as the director of INCOM distributor supply.

Hufford earned an master of business administration focused on organizational leadership from Ohio Dominican University, and a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Franklin University. His educational background, combined with his extensive industry knowledge, positions him well to excel in his new role.

“I’m honored and excited to lead Do it Best into its next chapter of growth and success,” Hufford says. “With a rich history in the wholesale industry and a steadfast commitment to excellence, I’m ready to leverage my experience in sales, retail and distribution to drive our company forward. Together with our dedicated team, I’m confident that we will continue to innovate, adapt and thrive in the ever-evolving market landscape.”

In his most recent position as director of e-commerce for store operations, Hufford has been responsible for managing the Epicor relationship and providing white glove services to Do it Best members. Going forward, he will expand his responsibilities to include overseeing the Retail Performance team and spearheading the implementation of the inventory productivity analysis tool.

The change in roles marks a return to sales for Hufford. His diverse experience and proven track record make him an invaluable asset to the Do it Best team.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jared Hufford back to sales as the director of strategic initiatives,” says vice president of sales Greg Fuller. “His extensive knowledge of the industry, combined with his exceptional leadership skills, will undoubtedly drive our sales efforts to new heights. We look forward to his continued contributions and success in this important role.”
