House-Hasson Creates New Leadership Post

House-Hasson Hardware has created a new leadership post—senior vice president of sales, growth and development—and named longtime industry veteran Jason Hanegan to fill the position.

Jason Hanegan

Hanegan served as a consultant for House-Hasson before being tapped for the new corporate role, says Steve Henry, House-Hasson president and CEO.

“There’s no doubt that Jason will demonstrate that we made the right decision in asking him to join House-Hasson,” Henry says. “He’s a valuable addition to our leadership team, is establishing strong personal relations with our dealers and will do a great job leading our sales and support staff.”

House-Hasson has 65 sales staff members serving dealers in 23 states and the Caribbean Basin. Hanegan says he’s long admired House-Hasson’s growth, longevity and reputation as a company that makes its top priority the profitability of the independent hardware store and lumberyard dealers the company serves.

“House-Hasson is legendary for its role as a hardware products distributor and its service to dealers,” Hanegan says. “Reflecting on what I wanted to do, and where I wanted to be, House-Hasson has it all: it’s a privately-held, family-owned company with 118 years of selling goods that people need and want, and it’s enabling the success of independent dealers on whom their stores’ customers depend. House-Hasson is a company with a marvelous legacy and a great future. And beyond that, it doesn’t take long to love living in east Tennessee.”

Henry says Hanegan has identified a Top 20 list of initiatives focused on company performance and industry best practices, and he is analyzing policies and procedures to ensure their effectiveness in serving House-Hasson’s customers. Reporting to him are these House-Hasson departments: sales, marketing, retail services, customer service and strategic retail management.

“Jason has more than 20 years of experience in building and leading regional and national sales teams, business development, process improvement and change management,” Henry says. “He’s accomplished this for regional, national and international hardlines wholesalers.”

“House-Hasson will be aggressive with process improvement, expansion into new markets and developing tools for our customers to be better retailers, all while maintaining our local touch,” Hanegan says. “Everyone at House-Hasson comes to work every day with a servant mentality and is determined to be better today than we were yesterday, for our customers’ benefit.”
