COLUMBUS, Ohio – Heating, Air-conditioning & Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) is pleased to announce the addition of Brandin Bursa, Account Manager, to the growing HARDI team.

Bursa brings a unique background of experience to the table. Prior to HARDI, Bursa was involved in construction and industrial supply, professional development and training, and also managed multiple divisions within a custom upholstery company.

“As the Account Manager for our Manufacturer and Service Vendor members, my responsibility is to help associate members & suppliers maximize the value of their participation in HARDI. From lending an ear, to advocating on their behalf, I want to be viewed as an accountable point of contact within HARDI for these members.” Bursa said.

With HARDI’s new Strategic Plan including a Voice of Supplier component, it is the optimal time for Bursa to step in and build relationships that help further the organization’s efforts to better understand Manufacturer and Supplier members and their relationship with HARDI wholesalers.

“He is very intelligent with great strategic thinking abilities and a lot of drive,” said Director of Marketing and Sales, Chris DeBoer. “I am confident that his past experience will help him step into the role and quickly become an excellent resource for our Supplier, Service Vendor and Rep members.”
