Jimmy Hiller, Jr., an experienced leader with expansive industry experience, has grown alongside the company over the past twenty years. Beginning his training at an impressionable age, Hiller grew up sorting parts, riding along on calls with Jimmy Hiller, Sr., and learning the business. During high school, he would spend his free time on job sites, apprenticing from seasoned technicians and working long hours with his father. Hiller displayed an unprecedented determination to succeed across all aspects of his young life, becoming a two-time State Champion wrestler, while maintaining his course load and career training. These traits exemplify the passion and work ethic he brings to Hiller’s executive team.
Since joining the Hiller team full-time in 2009, Hiller has been an integral player in the company’s rapid annual growth and resulting successes.

During his tenure at Hiller’s Murfreesboro location, he grew the business 350%, making it the most profitable location in under two years. In 2014, Mr. Hiller overhauled an acquisition in Columbia, TN, transforming it from the least profitable location to the most profitable (216% Growth) within the same year.
Most recently, Hiller served as both a member of the executive team and the General Manager of the largest and most profitable branch of the business in Nashville, managing over 300 associates. Hiller oversaw multiple departments, including Commercial Services, Recruiting and Training, Leadership Development, and Customer Service Management, which will remain under his management in his new role.
