Throwback Thursday is a weekly feature in which we dip into the archives of the Hardlines Weekly Report.

The event was also a forum for the new CEO—only the company’s third during its half-century in existence—to speak directly with member-dealers,” we wrote. “Although Terry Davis (pictured) officially steps into the top job May 1 (2014), he was front and centre at the dealer meeting in Graham Ferguson Hall on day two of the market. His message that morning was a simple one: ‘It’s your company,’ he said emphatically.”

Davis’s tenure in the top job at Home Hardware Stores Ltd. was planned as an interim role and lasted about four years. In Sept. 11, 2018, the job went to Kevin Macnab, who is currently in his sixth year with the firm.
