  • Stuart Johnson

    Director of Sales and Marketing
    • There is a saying that goes, "A man may do an immense deal of good if he does not care who gets the credit of it." These are words that Stuart lives by. When Stuart is involved on a task, the work gets done quickly, efficiently, and without a lot of fanfare.

      He came to HUB as a young man in 2000 and has worked in nearly every department as he rose to the position he now holds. With his wealth of first-hand experience in every corner of the company, Stuart is well-equipped to manage his diverse and talented staff.

  • Kevin Kock

    • Kevin Kock (pronounced "Cook") grew up on a farm in Chancellor, South Dakota. He traded his manure shovel for a computer a long time ago, but he held on to his sturdy Midwestern values when he relocated to Florida in the late '80s.

      Kevin joined HUB in 2005 and has been a crucial figure in the company's success since then. As controller, Kevin holds a lot of responsibility for the financial side of the business, leveraging our cash flow/debt/credit/collections policies for optimum horsepower to allow HUB to continue to grow and be profitable.

      Kevin once famously said, "If our competitors saw our people, they would drool; if they saw our payroll, they would faint!"

      More of a mountains guy than a beach guy, Kevin and wife Mary are frequent visitors to the Smoky Mountain National Park.

  • Shawn Johnson

    Client Experience Manager
    • Shawn started working at HUB in 2000. At the time, there were about 15 employees in the organization.

      As Client Service Manager, his duties require superior problem-solving skills and a deep knowledge of the inner workings of the LTL and parcel service business. He supervises a staff of 4 other client services experts, all of whom have strict instructions to do whatever it takes to satisfy our clients—our Boss.

      Shawn's sonorous voice and trustworthy demeanor have cast him in the role of a fanciful news anchor in HUB's Monday Morning Minute video series, which is available for viewing on our home page.

      When not working, Shawn can be found mixing it up with his boisterous family, which includes wife Melanie, 4 sons and 2 daughters.

  • Andy Carrender

    Director of Operations
    • Andy started with HUB Industrial in January 2012. Prior to that, Andy spent 15 years working in the finance industry in various roles. Since coming on board as inventory manager, he has expanded his responsibilities to include management of our warehouse and manufacturing department.

      In his spare time, Andy enjoys spending time with his wife and 3 kids. He also has a twin brother who lives in the same community. The two brothers look so much alike that even people who have known them since they were kids still have difficulty telling them apart, which leads to many opportunities for mistaken identities. This is more of a problem in the grocery store than at work, however. They have never deliberately "traded places" at work, as far as we know…

    Andy Carrender - Director of Inventory and Warehouse Logistics
  • Danny Kampmeyer

    Product Manager
    • Our team of product managers are a talented bunch. Each have their own way of sourcing the products our customers need while forging strong relationships with our vendors. Danny has the remarkable ability to stand up to the pressures applied by our sales staff and suppliers, finding solutions that work for all concerned, and earning their respect in the process.

      Prior to joining HUB Industrial Supply in 2011, Danny spent 13 years as an installation and service manager for a leading landscape contractor. Danny’s background in project management, customer service and marketing gives him a unique insight into the qualities clients require and value in a supplier.

      In his spare time, Danny enjoys spending time with his wife and growing family doing yard work, home remodeling, and volunteering at church.

    • Bennett serves the galvanizing, precast and fencing industry. He is a creative thinker and has greatly expanded the reach of HUB specialty products across North America as well as other continents. His goal is to help his customers get the best products and make more money.

      Bennett started at HUB in 2010, although he remembers an isolated afternoon one summer as a kid when he earned $20 and some free pizza helping bag up kits of fasteners with some friends at HUB—for a 12 year old boy, that was a big deal in those days.

      Bennett likes to spend time with his wife and two boys, help others, and play about any sport that he can find others willing to play.

    Bennett Lacey - National Accounts Manager
  • David Miller

    National Accounts Manager

      Before joining HUB, David was a United States Marine, Vice President of Suwannee River Log Homes, and an operations manager for a large photo studio.

      David's feeling about working for HUB: "The company believes in taking care of its clients. They also carry that same feeling over into the employees."

      David enjoys spending time with his wife and three kids when not working. He also drinks a lot of sweet tea—partly for the flavor, and partly to show his allegiance to his southern roots.

    David Miller - National Accounts Manager

      Favorite quote: "I believe you can have anything you want in life as long as you help enough other people get what they want." —Zig Ziglar

      When not working, he enjoys spending time with family and playing sports. He also is the guy we turn to when we need to get everyone's attention, because he can cut loose an ear-piercing whistle loud enough to interrupt whatever is going on.

    John Lacey - National Accounts Specialist
  • Jonny Guinn

    National Accounts Specialist
    • Jonny has been an industry specialist for HUB since 2009, assisting some of our biggest clients in the pallet industry. In 2012, HUB added his likeness to all our shipping cartons, because he had garnered the most votes from the public in a promotion that was tied to the presidential election of that year. He became our honorary "President of You're the Boss," and presided for a year in that capacity.

      Apart from his stellar work at HUB, Jonny is also a talented singer and performs regularly at church. His family includes wife Heidi and three children. They enjoy outdoor activities like fishing, hiking and travel. Jonny also loves to cook and enjoys a strong cup of coffee.

  • Leigh Britt

    National Accounts Specialist
    • Leigh started at HUB in 2004 assisting clients in the auto recycling industry. As a former owner-operator of a dry-cleaning business, she brings with her an empathy for the struggles faced by smaller shops doing their best to make a difference in a rough and tumble world.

      Leigh's clients have long relied on her expertise in recommending the best equipment for their situation, and she is particularly well-versed in the world of dismantling sawblades.

      Leigh and husband Sonny have 3 children and a grandchild. She enjoys country life and spending time with family.

    Leigh Britt - National Accounts Specialist
  • Rachel Shaheen

    National Accounts Specialist
    • If you are a whitewood pallet company needing supplies from HUB, the pleasant voice you are hearing on the other end of the line is probably that of Rachel Shaheen. Rachel started here in 2011 in the client services department, and later moved into her current position where she works closely with Pallet industry manager Samuel Lacey.

      Rachel loves to spend time with her family, immediate and extended, and she likes to travel. She is married to husband Nathan and they have 3 children. Rachel is a very hard-working individual both on and off the job, and the one guilty pleasure she permits herself is that she loves to shop.

    Rachel Shaheen - National Accounts Specialist
  • Jonny Handy

    Website Product Manager
    • As a member of the IT team at HUB, Jonny's forte is working with hardware. When he's not troubleshooting someone's computer or our warehouse scanners, Jonny is the main hardware specialist on our Inventory IQ® team.

      Jonny came to us in late 2013. He had a successful career in a telecommunications company before deciding to join us here at HUB. His expertise has helped shape our destiny in a way that would not be possible in a much larger company.

      In his spare time, Jonny installs equipment on police patrol cars and other emergency vehicles. He also likes to spend time with his wife and four daughters.

    Jonny Handy - Website Product Manager
  • Marga Arnold

    Sr. Administrative Assistant
    • Marga projects the kind of confident efficiency that allows the rest of the HUB staff to relax. We know that all the details are going to be taken care of—no matter what the project is—when Marga is involved.

      Marga came to work for HUB in 2005 when she answered a blind ad for an administrative assistant. She had previously worked as a personal assistant to a bank president and also to a prominent ophthalmologist.

      Marga is married with three children and three grandchildren. Husband Phillip grew up in Georgia and is a lifelong Bulldog fan and Marga is happy to stand by her man. In the summertime, Marga likes to go with her husband and grandchild Conner out to the Gulf of Mexico to go scalloping and fishing.

    Marga Arnold - Sr. Administrative Assistant
  • Matthew Skowron

    Inventory Control Manager
    • Matthew is another "old-timer" with HUB, having started in 2003 as a mere youth assembling fastener kits in the warehouse. He has worked in several departments over the years, eventually putting his experience and innate intelligence to work in our inventory control department. In this capacity, he works closely with our IT department to bend the software configurations to most benefit HUB's needs. Management and sales associates alike value Matt's problem-solving skills and his willingness to work very hard to get our clients the stuff they need when they need it.

      Matthew is married and has two daughters. He enjoys fishing, bicycling, snorkeling and spending time with his family when not at work.

    Matthew Skowron - Inventory Control Manager
  • Terri Roemer

    Accounts Receivable
    • When Terri first reported to work at HUB in 2003, there were only five or six cars in our parking lot. Things have changed a lot since then. One thing that has been a constant, however, is Terri’s efficient performance as A/R specialist in the accounting department. Terri is responsible for billing and collections, and she handles what can sometimes be a delicate matter with compassion and professionalism.

      Terri is a grandma with a wide variety of interests including photography, cycling, and her newest passion, which is playing pickleball.

    Terri Roemer - Accounts Receivable
  • David Durbin

    Credit Manager
    • David is a serious and hard-working chap who has held a variety of operations positions since he started at HUB in 2013. He now works in our accounting department, which is an assignment that he lobbied hard to obtain and which makes best use of his talents.

      Prior to coming to HUB, David worked as a partner in a small construction business not too different from some of the clients he now serves at HUB. He says the experience showed him how important efficiency is to being profitable.

      When he is not on the job, he likes to spend time with his wife and young daughter. He also enjoys making his own household repairs and increasing his practical knowledge of appliances and vehicles. "You can learn a lot by taking something apart," he says.

    David Durbin - Credit Manager
  • Ryan Tenneboe

    Shipping Department Leader
    • Ryan came here in early 2014 ago when it was determined that our growing team of warehouse workers needed an additional layer of management to meet our production goals.

      "I came here for the culture," Ryan explains. "I had worked my way up in my previous job, but I knew that moving to HUB was a chance to further my career. I really enjoy the challenges and positive work environment here and the fact that we are a fast-growing company."

      Ryan is intelligent, earnest and likes sharing a good adventure with his wife, Brianna. He also roasts his own coffee beans in a fanatical quest for crafting the best coffee known to man.

    Ryan Tenneboe - Shipping Department Leader
  • Ken Lacey

    Content Manager
    • Ken spends his days making sure the things we write are spelled correctly and make sense. He is the writer of many articles, product descriptions and marketing pieces. He's also the head puppeteer behind the camera, doing what he can to make our on-camera talent feel at home doing things they never knew they were signing up for when they came to work for HUB!

      For Ken, this position requires just the right blend of creativity and wonkish research to keep him content.

      If the Lacey name has a familiar ring to it, it's because all four of Ken's kids also work at HUB as account managers. Family get-togethers with Ken's wife, kids and grandchildren sometimes resemble a HUB company picnic.

    Ken Lacey - Content Manager
  • Jenny Kampmeyer

    Quality Assurance Specialist
    • One of the bedrock values we have at HUB is to take care of our vendors as well as we take care of our customers. A vendor who feels valued will be much more willing to grant favors when the need arises. Jenny is here to see to it that our vendors get the red-carpet treatment that keeps HUB in their good graces. She started as a quality control specialist in 2017 and worked her way into this position.

      Jenny has a busy personal life as well. She and husband Kevin have been married since 1997 and have 3 grown kids. She started taking piano lessons somewhat late in life, acting on a lifelong dream to become proficient in that instrument.

    Jennifer Kampmeyer - Quality Assurance Specialist
  • Jonathan Sluss

    Product Support Specialist
    • HUB's deep pool of talent includes the versatile skills of Jonathan Sluss. Jonathan tries to keep a low profile, concealing his intellectual horsepower behind humble-sounding speech mannerisms that include addressing his colleagues with a "Hey, man..." and a "yeah, man." But few of us are fooled by it. Jonathan works in our marketing department, upgrading our image library and making incremental improvements to the way we present content on our website and catalog.

      Jonathan was born and raised in Lake City and, among other superpowers, possesses perfect pitch. He plays guitar and bass and likes spending time with family. He also enjoys travelling and exploring unfamiliar destinations.

    Jonathan Sluss - Product Support Specialist
  • Justin Kent

    Inventory IQ Solution Manager
    • We all have people in our lives who possess that quality that Huckleberry Finn called “sand.”

      A person with sand is someone you can trust to get the job done; someone who sees things through to the end and who keeps an upbeat attitude even when others around him start to cut and run.

      Justin Kent has been making the difficult things look easy since he started at HUB in 2012. He now runs point on our Inventory IQ® installs. Justin has sand.

      When he’s not working, Justin likes to hang out with friends at the river.

    Justin Kent - Inventory IQ Solution Manager
  • Lauren Butler

    Client Experience Representative
    • A part of the team since 2017, Lauren is one of the friendly voices you are likely to hear answer the phone when you call.

      “I love talking to customers,” Lauren says. “I get a lot of satisfaction helping them get what they need from us!”

      She also loves the festive atmosphere that often exists in the Client Experience corner of the home office. She and her fellow CE teammates share a camaraderie borne out of many hours spent together sharing tips about how best to attend to the needs of the important people who call into HUB.

      ...That, and sharing gossip about what they’re planning to do on the upcoming weekend, or perhaps details of their favorite Netflix series...

    Lauren Butler - Industry Specialist
  • Sam Helmick

    Account Manager
    • After a 10-year career in the mortgage industry, Samantha Helmick has come to work at HUB so she can focus on what she does best: working directly with clients to help them solve their supply problems. She has become a specialist solving problems for the hydroblasting industry.

      A native of North Florida, Sam comes from a close-knit family that loves football, with a particular fondness for the FSU Seminoles and the New England Patriots. She is mother to four children. When she’s not working, she’s spending time with her kids or working on improving her golf game.

    Sam Helmick - National Accounts Specialist
  • Caleb Vaughn

    Outside Sales Specialist

      When Caleb took a job at HUB in 2017, he was hired as a welder in our fabrication shop. Within 6 months, he had sufficiently impressed management that they offered him an opportunity to train as a sales representative. It was a turning point in his life. With sales, he was able to combine his self-starting work ethic with the opportunity to build relationships and make a difference in his customers’ lives. He found his passion when it fell into his lap.

      Now Caleb is focused on having a long career working for the company he believes in, helping his customers achieve their goals and making their lives easier.

      Caleb loves to hunt and spend time with friends and family. His belief is that you always end up where you belong and he considers HUB His home away from home.

  • Lindsay Markham

    Purchasing Manager
    • For a small-town girl born and raised in Lake City, Lindsay Markham has had a big city career, working over 20 years as a purchasing agent for an aviation company that has contracts with some of the world’s great airlines. She brought her purchasing expertise to HUB in 2017, and the change suits her. “I’ve never worked in an environment where the people have such care and respect for each other,” she says.

      When she’s not keeping the goods coming in for our customers, Lindsay can be found astride her Harley, enjoying the back roads and scenery with her husband, often with their adult son riding alongside. They comprise a different kind of motorcycle gang known simply as The Markhams.

    Lindsay Markham - Purchasing Manager

      Emily works on a team with David Miller, dealing directly with clients in the glass and waste industries.

  • Robert Agnese

    Software Developer
    • As a student working toward an advanced degree at the University of Florida, Rob Agnese (pronounced Ag-NEE-see) developed a fascination with computer coding, and he became an expert at crafting software in pursuit of his academic goals.

      It has been a real boon to us at HUB Industrial that a developer with Rob’s skills would find his home here collaborating with the other members of our technology team to develop very sophisticated software systems that help our customers manage their supplies.

      Rob’s been here since early 2018, working almost exclusively on HUB’s Inventory IQ project, both on the handheld app and the other various parts and pieces that power it, including the web-based plug-in that integrates Inventory IQ with our website.

      In his spare time, Rob enjoys cooking, travel, and spending time with his family.

    Robert Agnese - Software Developer
  • David Hardesty

    Regional Sales Manager
    • While most of the rest of us at HUB were still doing carpentry, sitting in algebra class, or making lattes, David Hardesty was already a veteran of the industrial supply industry. His lengthy resume documents years of solving customer’s problems while working for Cintas, Barnes, and MSC to name a few.

      Dave joined HUB in early 2020 to manage our outside sales team and lend support to general manager Geoff Otts as HUB continues to grow sales volume year over year.

      A recent transplant from Virginia, Dave enjoys boating and fishing and spending time with his wife and 4 children when he’s not on the job. His favorite on-the-job pastimes are team building and forging sincere relationships with his customers.

  • Charlie Lacey

    National Account Manager
    • The first time Charlie worked at HUB, he was a teenager in the shipping department. Now, several years later, Charlie is an account professional working in the road construction industry with a proven record of cultivating strong relationships in business.

      In the intervening years, Charlie worked for a small nursery that during his tenure had become a much larger nursery. As the nursery grew, so has Charlie’s experience and talent for understanding the needs of his clients. Back at HUB since 2019, he has been able to take the skills he learned at the nursery and combine them with the knowledge of industrial supplies and HUB values that he remembered from his days in the warehouse.

      Charlie lives in Jacksonville with his wife Carolina and two boys. He likes fishing, skim boarding, and flag football.

    Charlie Lacey - National Account Manager
  • Wyndell Wallace

    Account Manager
    • When you are in need of a sales rep who can look you in the eye and give you the unvarnished truth, Wyndell is the kind of guy you’re looking for. Wyndell joined our team in 2020 after a stint at Fastenal.

      Wyndell is based in Mobile, AL, and serves the surrounding region for HUB and Applied MSS. He grew up in the one-horse Florida town of Sanderson, which is due west of Jacksonville. He went to Warner University in Lake Wales FL, where he played in the backfield of the Royals football team. We’d like to say he led them to a championship season, but… well, anyway, they played their best.

      When Wyndell isn’t working, he likes to strengthen body and mind with visits to the gym as well as museums. He believes in staying young by always learning something new.

    Wyndell Wallace - Account Manager
  • Jennifer Guinn

    Industry Specialist
    • When Jenny came to work at HUB in 2017, she established herself as a trustworthy advisor to our galvanizing partners. She relocated to Colorado in 2019, but thanks to modern technology, she now is back in business helping out our galvanizers through an ever-present cloud of diffused essential oils right from her home office.

      When she’s not working, Jenny spends time with her husband and kids exploring the sights and activities that the Colorado Rockies are so famous for. She also enjoys knitting and cooking.

    Jennifer Guinn - Industry Specialist
  • Jordan Morrill

    Industry Specialist
    • By the time he was just 20 years old, Jordan was already a rising star in his telemarketing company. They selected him to be their guy to set up a call center in the Philippines. A string of other assignments followed until he decided to come back home and take on a new challenge in 2020 when he came to work for HUB.

      Jordan develops new business in the waste and recycling industries. It’s a little more personal than his call center days, where he required his team to make over 1,000 calls per day. He really likes being able to build relationships in the industry, and gaining a knowledge of its inner workings so he can better aid his customers with useful solutions to their problems.

      Jordan believes in the “work hard, play hard” ethic. When not on the job, you can find him hiking or playing hoops.

    Jordan Morrill - Industry Specialist
  • Kylee Flagg

    Client Experience Specialist
    • In case you are wondering why Kylee Flagg needs that extra “g” at the end of her name, it’s there to provide additional reinforcement for her exuberant personality. The first day she pulled her single cab Silverado 4x4 into the HUB parking lot in 2020, the rest of us knew we had added a force to be reckoned with to our client experience staff.

      At 4’ 11”, Kylee proudly bears the title of shortest team member at HUB. She says she loves working with people and helping clients find the answers they are looking for.

      Kylee is an outdoor enthusiast, spending all her spare time fishing in-shore or mud-bogging on her enormous ATV named Becky. We’re thinking of recommending that she start spelling her name “Flaggg.”

    Kylee Flagg - Client Experience Specialist
  • Bill Klucker

    Business Development Manager
    • Some of us have our destiny handed to us on the day we are born. Born into the Klucker family, Bill’s job from the start was how to turn that last name into an asset rather than a liability. He had his run-ins with the playground bullies but eventually came to see that a memorable name could be useful in the world of sales—a way to get one’s foot in the door until his clients could discover his value as a reliable and responsive problem solver.

      Thus was launched a 30-year career of excellence. He’s worked in the paper and healthcare industries, but ironically was never able to attract the interest of a poultry-related company despite the obvious hook. At one point, he was recognized as the top sales representative at Ecolab Healthcare nationally. Since 2021, he’s been assisting industrial customers for HUB Industrial and parent company Applied MSS.

    Bill Klucker - Business Development Manager
  • Brett Scott

    Business Development Manager
    • Georgia native Brett Scott represents HUB Industrial and Applied MSS to manufacturers in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and South Carolina.

      Based in Roswell, Georgia, Brett is a proud graduate of Georgia Southern University. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter and getting in as many rounds of golf as possible.

    Brett Scott- Business Development Manager
  • Casey Martin

    Client Experience Specialist
    • From the time she was 16, Casey has been immersed in the world of work. Her life experience has taught her to stick up for herself and not allow anyone to tell her what can and cannot be achieved. She rose from working as a server in the fast-food industry to higher and higher positions of responsibility through the leadership and managerial abilities she has developed. Her most recent position prior to joining HUB in 2021 was receptionist at a large medical office.

      Since Casey joined the client experience team at HUB, she says it’s the best working environment she’s ever known. “It’s so nice to have a caring and supportive work environment,” she says.

      A native of North Florida, Casey spends her off time with her two daughters and taking online continuing education classes. She also enjoys shopping.
