Do it Best Corp. has created a new position -- national retail performance manager -- and promoted Scott Sproul into the job.
In this position, Sproul will play a key role in the co-op’s sales and business development department as it works with member-owners to become the premier retailers in their marketplaces. He and the retail performance team will bring project management expertise and generous financial incentives to members who implement comprehensive store improvement projects. In addition to these duties, Sproul will also further develop and implement new programs that will help Do it Best Corp. members thrive at the retail level.
A 13-year veteran of Do it Best, Sproul most recently served as regional sales and business development manager for the southeastern United States, where he led a team of sales professionals across an 11-state territory. Prior to that, he worked as the co-op’s territory manager in Kentucky. Overall, he has more than 30 years’ experience in the retail and home improvement industries, working extensively in merchandising, marketing, purchasing and management.
“As a regional manager and former retail executive, Scott has experienced firsthand the impact and value our many retail programs and services provide to our members,” said Do it Best VP sales and business development Jay Brown. “His energy, enthusiasm and experience will be great assets as we look to continually grow and enhance the programs that matter most to our members.”
