HD Supply names head of construction business

HD Supply, the former professional division of Home Depot that was sold earlier this year to a group of investment firms, has announced Tom Lazzaro will assume leadership of the company’s White Cap Construction Supply.

Lazzaro currently serves as president of HD Supply’s interiors business, a role he will continue to hold. He replaces Brian Etter, who is leaving the company to serve as CEO at an international motor sports company.

Lazzaro joined HD Supply in August 2006. He has more than 20 years experience in general management, sales, sourcing and operations.

“I look forward to building on the world-class team that Brian put in place and continuing to grow the business,” Lazzaro said.

Earlier this month, HD Supply also announced it had named Mark Jamieson senior vp and CFO.

Jamieson most recently served as executive vp and CFO for Ryder Systems, a global transportation and supply chain management company. Previously, he served as CFO for Sammons Enterprises, a holding company with interests in insurance, heavy equipment and real estate.

HD Supply serves professional customers in the infrastructure, construction, maintenance, repair and remodel markets, with nearly 1,000 locations.
