Troy Deans, who has 35 years of military service, steps into the newly created role of Redeployment Center Supervisor, and Jesse Mestas joins BlackHawk as the West Coast Regional Vending Solutions Manager.

Mestas has experience in inventory management and the composite industry, and previously held positions at AutoCrib and Magnum Venus Products.

“Both Troy and Jesse are extremely talented individuals and true experts in their field,” said Bob Miller, BlackHawk’s Director of Supply Chain Services, in an April 18 news release. “Their unwavering passion, combined experience, and relentless dedication to excellence will undoubtedly strengthen our ability to deliver unparalleled service and innovative supply chain services to our customers both now and well into the future.”

These appointments come at a strategic time for BlackHawk Industrial, as the Oklahoma-based distributor accelerates its growth strategy and expands its capabilities to better serve industrial manufacturers globally.

BlackHawk ranked twice on MDM’s 2023 Top Distributors Lists, including as No. 32 on the Top Industrial Distributors List and No. 14 on the Top MRO Industrial Distributors List.
