  • Jim Howland


    I am fortunate to be able to serve as a Director of Marketing for the Industrial and Commercial Division of the North America Commercial Team within Stanley Black & Decker’s Global Tools & Storage Division and work closely with both NECA and the ELECTRI foundation.

    In my current role, my main charge is developing and executing a relevant approach for the division’s commercial implementation of our Enterprise Solutions Team where we articulate our Safety | Productivity | Profitability message from the Boardroom to the Tool Room.

    The bold portfolio of Stanley Black & Decker’s brands is anchored by DEWALT, DEWALT ANCHORS & FASTENERS, LENOX Tools, and PROTO Industrial Tools from which I drive Stanley Black & Decker’s Total Solution message to the NECA Member with concentration on acquisition and fidelity.

    Focused on service, I’m a national Board Member of the ToolBank USA and veteran of the United States Navy; serving as an Aviation Electronics Technician, I had the honor to deploy aboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, CVN-69.

    I’m privileged to be a 26-year employee with Stanley Black & Decker. A native of Cincinnati, OH, I currently live in Towson, MD with my wife, Erin and our twins, Mac & Livi.
