PHOENIX Horizon Distributors has promoted Justin Hamilton and David Rohrer to the position of region manager.  

Hamilton has moved into region manager in south Texas. He joined Horizon just over a year ago, exhibiting success as a national sales manager. Prior to joining Horizon, Hamilton was in a senior sales role with NCI Building Systems, a supplier of materials and components for the nonresidential construction industry. Hamilton will be responsible for seven stores in the Houston, Austin and San Antonio metro areas.

Rohrer has been promoted to region manager for the South Bay and South Valley in California.  In the past seven years, Rohrer has demonstrated success in each position he has held at Horizon, starting as an outside sales representative, and then transitioning into a successful branch manager in Fresno. Most recently, he held the position of zone manager for the San Joaquin Valley. Rohrer will be responsible for six stores from Menlo Park to Fresno.  

These changes all happen on the heels of Horizon naming a new president in March, Jeffrey Clay. Before Horizon, Clay was founder and president of Belltown Power Texas, responsible for the overall strategy, operations and business execution. Just prior to that, he was the vice president of strategy & corporate development for the Roofing Supply Group based in Dallas, where he led all greenfield efforts resulting in 26 new branches delivering more than $150 million in revenue in just over two years.

“It’s always great when you can promote from within your own organization,” Clay said. “Both Justin and David have been great performers at Horizon, and I look forward to seeing their success in their new roles.”
