Horizon Hobby hires new VP of sales
August 22, 2012
Horizon Hobby announced Tuesday, Aug. 21, that Greg Miller has joined its executive team as vice president of North America sales. Miller previously worked in the floor-care industry where he worked with such retailers as Electrolux, Bissel and Hoover products.
“The hobby industry is different than floor care,” Miller said, “but the challenges facing the independent dealers in today’s market remain the same.
“The main difference is the fun factor in the hobby business.”
Horizon Hobby CEO Joe Ambrose said it’s precisely this understanding of the challenges facing independent retailers that makes Miller such a great fit for his new role. “Greg’s experience helping small, independent brick-and-mortar stores build their businesses will be a major asset to our retail partners. We believe in the value brick-and-mortar stores bring to the consumer experience, and Greg is prepared to help them leverage it.”
In addition to leading the North America sales team, Miller will be supporting the region’s retailer customer service and business operations teams.
