Don’s background prepared him well for his role.

Don Phillips has been named vice president of operations for House-Hasson Hardware. In his new role, Phillips will supervise House-Hasson’s Knoxville, Tenn. and Prichard, W. Va. warehouses. These warehouses are staffed by 176 employees and have a combined 700,000 square feet of product space.

Phillips joined House-Hasson in April 2011 as head of the company’s Knoxville warehouse.  Becoming operations vice president acknowledges his effectiveness for House-Hasson’s hardware store and lumberyard customers, said Don Hasson, president of House-Hasson Hardware.

“Don’s background prepared him well for his role with us and his performance has proven that he’s a top-level organizer, manager and thinker,” said Hasson. “Our overriding goal is the profitability of our dealers, and warehouse operations are absolutely crucial to that effort. Don understands that and makes good things happen.”
