Bearings Headquarters announced that Jimmy Timble has assumed the role of president and CEO, along with other executive appointments.

In his 24 years at BHQ, Timble has played an integral role in many company operations, including the development and growth of the Broadview, Illinois-based company's Metalworking Shops Division. "BHQ is proud and excited to see Jimmy continue to grow a legacy that started with our inception in 1934 as Bearing Headquarters advances into the next phase of our evolution," according to a company press release.
