Simpson Strong-Tie has made several additions and promotions to strengthen its national accounts team, further serving professional builders and LBM suppliers.

“The national accounts team is committed to prioritizing long-term outcomes,” said Nate Johnston, vice president of national accounts at Simpson Strong-Tie. “This fundamental value serves as a cornerstone that holds us accountable for making decisions that benefit both our customers and our organization. The new positions we have created within the team will help ensure consistent support to our organization’s sales leaders and maintain a strong focus on our core business objectives.”

The new national account positions comprise:

  • Director of National Accounts for National Builders — Simpson Strong-Tie has promoted Tina Haro to the recently created Director of National Accounts for National Builders position, which will oversee all aspects of Simpson Strong-Tie’s national home builder partnerships as well as its builder team. With 17 years of experience in national builder sales, Haro brings a deep understanding of the customer segment, their unique needs and their interactions with Simpson Strong-Tie’s national pro supply partners.
    Haro has been involved with the NAHB and the Southern Nevada HBA for 13 years, including five years as an active member of the Professional Women in Building Council, where she has contributed significantly to local and national committees. In 2019, she joined the Leading Suppliers Council Board of Trustees and currently serves as the vice co-chair.
  • Director of National Accounts for Pro Supply — Will Becker has been promoted to this new role and will manage Simpson Strong-Tie’s pro supply partners and its pro supply team. In his 15 years at Simpson Strong-Tie, Becker has progressed through several key positions — including dealer and fastener sales rep, territory manager, senior business development for software and, most recently, senior national account manager for pro supply — through which he has established a diverse background and wealth of experience that make him a valuable asset to the director position.
  • National Accounts Builder and Technology Manager — Following recent investments in developing its digital products, Simpson Strong-Tie has promoted Jack Grant from senior national builder manager to the newly created position of National Accounts Builder and Technology Manager. Grant will continue to manage some national builder accounts directly while adding focus on the company’s builder software approach.
    Grant has a passion for digital transformation that has helped deliver strong results at other organizations while building efficiencies in workflow management. Since joining Simpson Strong-Tie in 2019, starting as a regional builder manager, his evangelism of the organization’s technology solutions will play a critical role in growth over the next few years.

“Our relentless customer focus drives us to constantly innovate and develop new strategies to ensure we remain at the forefront of our industry,” Johnston said. “As our sales organization continues to evolve, these new positions and fresh voices will help ensure we can maintain consistency and fuel further growth for our company and our customers alike.”
