Some of the company’s recent highlights include:

“The foundations for sustainable growth include building a strong team and making strategic investments at the right times,” said Palmer Johnson Enterprises in a press release. “Brad has helped facilitate this masterfully. The confidence displayed by suppliers for territory expansion results from many years of an outstanding partnership with Hamilton. Combine that with well-timed investments into the business and people since Palmer Johnson’s acquisition, and you have a recipe for success.
“Brad has attracted top talent by hiring high-impact leaders with many years of relevant industry experience. He has also built strong relationships with supplier principals. Accomplishing this while navigating the challenges of a global pandemic, Brad established himself as a respected leader, not just with the team at Hamilton but within the entire industrial diesel industry.”
