Smiling in front of a crowded audience on the show floor stage, the NHS Top Guns for 2022 were announced at the National Hardware Show. The winners this year:

Pat Sullivan, president, Sullivan Hardware.

Stacy Bivona, VP Nebraska and marketing, Builders.

Elliot Greenberg, president and CEO, JC Licht.

Providing insight on what it means to be a Top Gun, Sullivan said to this HBSDealer editor, “My hope is that people can dream a little bit when they come visit us.”

When asked to share her thoughts with me about the honor, Bivona said, “It’s quite humbling. Anytime someone on our Builders team is recognized, it’s great for all of us.”

Adding his feelings about the award, Greenberg said, “I really love the opportunity to give back to the industry and I’ll share this award with JC Licht. I’m a big sharer.”

On stage Elliot was asked to share a thought about his hardware business.

“Our focus is on our strengths, which is our employees.” And about their customers, he added, “we strive to be servant-leaders.”

Furthering the theme of customers, Sullivan said, “become a place for different experiences. Give your customers something to get out and do. Think original. We have a coleslaw fest!”

On the topic of family, Bivona said, “We wear our hearts on our sleeves. We are passionate about our people.”

Those are the three Top Guns at NHS 2022 Las Vegas.
