Houston-based Handy Hardware Wholesale named former Moore-Handley executive Thomas J. Schifanella Jr. as chief financial officer.
"We are very pleased to welcome Tommy aboard," said Mickey Schulte, VP merchandising for Handy Hardware. "With his knowledge of the hardware industry our members will have a person who understands their business from day one. His knowledge of the customer base in the Southeast will also help speed our growth as we open our new distribution center in Meridian, Miss., the first week of December."
Schifanella spent six years as CFO of Alabama-based hardlines distributor Moore-Handley and more recently served as controller of Birmingham, Ala.-based Insight Card Services.
Moore-Handley filed for bankruptcy protection in July 2009, and was later acquired by Knoxville, Tenn.-based distributor House-Hasson.
