Lee Hein, Senior Executive Vice President - Sales, Fastenal Company

   Over the course of his 32-year Fastenal career, Lee Hein has served as a leader at the store, district, regional and national levels. In his current role, he oversees sales activity within Fastenal’s western U.S. business unit, which spans from the Mississippi River to the West Coast. Like most of Fastenal’s executive team, Lee started in an entry-level sales position, grounding his
leadership with a local store perspective. He was originally hired in 1985 as the assistant general manager of the La Salle, Illinois Fastenal store. He soon relocated to assume that same role in a larger store (Waterloo, Iowa) before being given the opportunity in 1988 to manage a store of his own, in Des
Moines, Iowa.
   From 1989 through 1995, he served as a district manager, leading numerous stores in a sales district that spanned from western Iowa and Nebraska to the Dakotas. In 1995, he was promoted to the position of regional vice president and spent the next 17 years overseeing districts and stores within multiple sales regions in the eastern U.S. and Canada.
   In 2012, he was named an executive vice president, with responsibility for developing and leading Fastenal’s western U.S. business unit. Today this business encompasses roughly 1,400 stores and 12,000 employees, generating nearly $2 billion in annual sales.
   Lee has served on the boards of several business and non-profit organizations in the Winona, Minnesota area, including Merchants Bank, the YMCA, and Pleasant Valley Church.
