Butch Johnson

Executive VP My Office Innovations (P3)

Butch has been in the office products industry since 1978 – over 42 years and counting! Yes, he was in the cradle when he started unloading box cars for Boise Cascade Office Products in the dark ages.

He has made stops at two other Fortune companies and three different independent dealers along the way. He can’t change his oil and he has no skills with tools of any kind EXCEPT Excel and he is pretty capable with this Bill Gates creation. He enjoys history podcasts and watching the Vols (who have been in the wilderness for 15 years) and he still proudly wears his Peyton jersey. Most of all, he prizes his eight (8) grandchildren from 6 months to 12 years.  Butch was the first employee of MyOfficeProducts in 2002 joined a day or two following the BIG BOSS, John Frisk. He currently leads his team on a daily mission to conquer the 3P marketplaces – Amazon, Walmart, Target, eBay and Newegg.

A few quick questions with Butch Johnson

What is your favorite part about living in Manchester, TN?

As Walt Disney said “greenest state in the land of the free”.  Fabulous 30 acres where I can be socially distanced whenever I choose

Who is your hero and why?

Winston Churchill – civilization hung in the balance and he stepped up.  But my real hero was my grandmother who lived simply, loved a lot and never traveled more than 8-10 hours from where she was born in West Tennessee

What’s the worst gift you ever received?

A Ham that had an expiration date over a year removed

Debbie Jones

VP of Sales

Debbie has spent her entire career in the Office Products business (30+ years). She worked for a forklift dealer and wanted to join sales to make lots of money, but she was told that “women” don’t sell such things. Not to be deterred, she looked for an industry that was willing to hire women! She started out as a sales trainee and moved through the management ranks with a single purpose and that was to achieve the highest levels possible. Her passion is inspiring others to achieve greatness that they don’t know they possess and building teams that are relentless in their pursuit of success. Some would call her a workaholic, but she really just loves her career and feels a deep sense of responsibility to her employees and their families. When she does turn off the work brain, she loves cooking while drinking red wine and listening to Frank Sinatra. Debbie has worked for HiTouch for over 10 years.

A few quick questions with Debbie Jones

Deb Huber

VP of Customer Experience

Deb has been in the office products industry since 2000. She joined HiTouch Business Services in 2009 through an acquisition and has managed many external and internal customer facing teams eventually leading her current role, VP of Customer Experience, in January 2020. Her belief is if we engage with our customers, truly listen to their wants and needs, create solutions and execute them, happy loyal customers will follow. A bad customer experience is remembered, but a great experience is felt and talked about. At HiTouch we strive for making our customers feel they are our priority. While away from the office, you will typically find her running her kids around to sports and social events, spending time with friends and cheering on the Indianapolis Colts with her husband, Gary.

A few quick questions with Deb Huber

What are you really bad at that you’d love to be great at?

Singing. As a little girl, I wanted to be Shirley Temple so bad, curly hair and all, however I can’t carry a tune in a bucket.

What was your favorite band in high school?

High School was such a long time ago, I can take you back to college and it was DMB, Blues Travelers and The Grateful Dead

If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be?

If fear was taken away, I would hang-glide, I imagine that is one of the freest feelings, soaring across the sky.
