The moves come in preparation for continued store and territory expansion.

Horizon Distributors

Horizon Distributors, Covington, Louisiana, a distributor of green industry products and services, promoted Justin Hamilton and David Rohrer to the position of region manager. The changes follow Horizon’s naming of Jeffrey Clay as the company’s new president in March.

Hamilton, now the region manager for South Texas, will be responsible for seven stores in Texas, including Houston, Austin and San Antonio. Rohrer, the region manager for South Bay and South Valley regions in California, will cover six stores in California, including those in Menlo Park and Fresno.

Hamilton joined Horizon a year ago as national sales manager. Rohrer has been with Horizon for the past seven years, starting as an outside sales representative and transitioning to being a branch manager. Most recently, Rohrer was zone manager for the San Joaquin Valley region in California.

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