Frank Filmeck, president and CEO of Busy Beaver, talks like a modern-day retailer who has been running a hardware store for several decades. But he joined the regional chain — which is marking its 50th anniversary this year — in 2002. Before that, he worked for ICI/Glidden Paint as a senior VP, handling such companies as Home Depot, Sears, Walmart and Kmart. Filmeck still remembers what it was like to sit in an airport — in this case, Cleveland — and wait for a flight that would take him to a meeting with Menards.
