Austin Hardware Promotes Three to New Positions of Regional Sales Manager

Austin Hardware and Supply, Inc. has announced the promotion of Chris Kiewert, Tyler Mills, and Tom Vrydaghs to fill new roles as Regional Sales Managers.

Each will have responsibility to oversee 3 to 4 Key Account Managers within their respective regions, along with maintaining a base of key accounts which they will continue to directly service.


Austin customers benefit from this new, smaller group structure by allowing for more frequent and in-depth sharing of innovative ideas, successful customer solutions, and enhanced product training.

Vrydaghs, with Austin since 2004, a National Key Account Manager and expert at finding engineered product solutions for customers, will oversee Key Account Managers in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana, and other parts of the Midwest.

Kiewert, a 4-year Key Account Manager and heavy construction specialist based in Buford, GA, will oversee reps along the Atlantic Coast.

Mills, in his third year with the company, will service accounts and oversee reps in the Midwest, Southwest, and on the West Coast.
