ProSales Magazine recently announced their annual Four Under Forty award recipients, a list that included Hancock Lumber’s Commodities Purchasing Manager, James Gigliotti. While James joined Team Hancock fairly recently- in late 2019 – he’s fit into the culture and company seamlessly, bringing his lifetime of industry experience and expertise with him. James made an immediate impact upon joining the company, helping Hancock’s purchasing team navigate supply chain issues faced during the most unprecedented buying year in the building materials industry.
“Upon joining Team Hancock James was able to immediately jump right into the commodity buying position. James works so well with the entire purchasing team as well as our General Managers and sellers at all of our locations to best position us and meet our inventory needs. James has a positive, can-do attitude that fits so well into the Hancock Lumber culture!”
-Mark Hopkins, Retail Division COO
Hancock Lumber’s Purchasing Manager, Bart James, commented on James earning the award, “It’s been truly great to have James onboard with Hancock’s Purchasing team! James’ background and knowledge of the industry made his transition seamless, even amid dealing with COVID. James communicates well with the entire Hancock Team and is very willing to dig into projects or source an elusive product. Additionally, James is not afraid to discuss new opportunities or processes that will help Hancock to be strongly positioned in the market or lead us into a new direction. Great to have a 4 under 40 on the Team as our industry continues to age. Thanks for all you do, James!”
