It is fitting that they now are recognizing Chad, whose department actively fosters a diverse workforce at all levels of our company,” said Newell. Littlefield directs all human resources functions for Industrial Supply, which has nearly 200 employees working in three states and seven locations throughout the Intermountain West.
