Harbor Freight names executive VP
Camarillo, Calif.-based tool retailer Harbor Freight Tools has appointed Gary Heeman as the firm's executive vice president.
Heeman resigned Friday as president of Campbell Hausfeld, a brand-name tool manufacturer based in Harrison, Ohio. An executive at Campbell Hausfeld since 1982, Heeman was named president in 2002.
Campbell Hausfeld, part of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. holding company, is conducting a search for Heeman’s successor.
Harbor Freight, which sells low-priced import tools through retail outlets, catalogs and the firm's Web site, reported revenues of $358 million last year.
