Marianne Thompson, chief commercial officer at Home Hardware Stores Ltd., is leaving the company effective Dec. 22. The news was revealed to the industry in a letter to Home Hardware vendors that went out yesterday.

The letter, signed by Thompson, expresses “a mix of excitement and nostalgia” over the move, and adds that she is leaving “for new opportunities.” The letter goes on to share a list of accomplishments at head office under Thompson’s leadership (she reports directly to Home Hardware president and CEO Kevin Macnab).

Thompson joined Home Hardware at the beginning of 2019 after serving as SVP of North American sales at Jeld-Wen Inc.
