Ewing Irrigation & Landscape Supply promoted Jack York to director of product line management.

York, the son of Ewing President and CEO Douglas W. York, rejoined the company in November 2018. He served as a branch manager in New York state before relocating to Ewing’s home office in Phoenix in November 2020 to become national irrigation product manager.

In his new role of director of product line management, York will lead and support Ewing’s product management efforts, including working with product managers on vendor relations, sales and marketing strategies. He will support the product management team in defining and executing growth initiatives and will continue to serve on Ewing’s executive management team. He also will continue to serve as irrigation product manager for the time being.

As irrigation product manager, York expanded his knowledge and experience on the inventory side of the business, including developing relationships with Ewing’s irrigation vendor partners, collaborating with Ewing’s procurement team, and working with regional and branch managers to execute local sales strategies. In this new role, he will further grow his skillsets and experience by working with these stakeholders across all of Ewing’s categories.

The fourth generation of family members at Ewing, York grew up as part of the company, working in the mailroom and at various Phoenix branches as a service professional and truck driver. During college, he interned as a buyer in the purchasing department and in the finance and accounting departments.

He holds a bachelor’s of science degree in economics with a concentration in finance from the University of Pennsylvania. Before returning to Ewing, he specialized in retail, technology, media, telecommunications and restaurant mergers and acquisitions for PJ Solomon (now Solomon Partners), a New York City-based investment banking advisory firm. Before that, he was a professional import player and coach for American football teams in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia.
