HUYETT OPENS NEW TECH CENTER IN SIDNEY, NEBRASKA In April 2019, G.L. Huyett opened a Technology Center in Sidney, Nebraska, a small rural town on the high plains of Western Nebraska. Sidney is the former home and headquarters of Cabela’s, Inc., which dramatically downsized operations in the community after it was acquired by outdoor retail rival Bass Pro Shops. We chose Sidney because of the presence of a large skilled workforce that is under-employed or unemployed and are wanting to stay in Sidney. The Technology Center will be headed by Sarah Sinnett, Vice President of Technology and Marketing. Sinnett was formerly a Portfolio Manager for Bass Pro Shops/Cabela’s, Inc. Much of Sinnett’s experience is in project management, business strategy, and talent management. She holds an undergraduate degree in Psychology as well as a Master of Science in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, emphasizing the use of statistical analysis and data in driving organizational results. Sinnett will sit on G.L. Huyett’s Executive Committee. G.L. Huyett has also hired Alan Beard to the newlycreated role of E-Commerce Manager. Beard holds multiple degrees from Kansas State University in Economics and Psychology, and two Master’s degrees: a Master of Business Administration from Wichita State University with a concentration in entrepreneurship, and a Master of Arts in Economics. Beard has an individual qualification certificate in Google Analytics and was most recently E-Commerce Manager at Great Plains Industries, a manufacturer of fuel management equipment. Beard will head up G.L. Huyett’s continuing development of its e-commerce site, focusing intently on continued improvement of the customer experience by leveraging content-rich attributes targeted specifically at G.L. Huyett’s distributor customer base. Beard also has extensive experience in EDI interfaces, another fast-growing technology priority for distributors. We have also hired Charles “Chuck” Hoffman to the role of Special Projects Administrator. In this role, Hoffman BUSINESS FOCUS ARTICLE G.L.

Huyett. Early priorities include enhanced management of inventory and pricing management, as well as customer analytics to assist the G.L. Huyett sales team in improving the Company’s value proposition. Hoffman holds both an undergraduate degree in Business Administration and a Master of Business Administration with an emphasis in Mathematics from Chadron State College. He was previously a Retail Associate Category Manager for Bass Pro Shops/Cabela’s, Inc. Future additions to the Sidney Tech Center likely include roles in Digital Marketing, Product Development and Digital Analytics. The Tech Center supports G.L. Huyett’s belief in the future of B2B commerce in the industrial space, and the increasing relevance of e-commerce and technology solutions that wire together the participants in the channel in a more intelligent manner using data to drive decisions and actions. We are excited to embrace these developments as part of our continuing strategy to be the most innovative technology company in the fastener industry, supported by a caring human touch from our sales and customer service teams.
