Our Leadership Team

Randy Andes

Randy is the President and Co-Owner of Randy's Do It Best Hardware and if you couldn't tell, the namesake also. He began his career in hardware retailing at the ripe old age of 18 when he worked for one of the local hardware stores in Timberville. After two years with that company, he was hired by another local hardware store and he carried on with that company for another 30 years before retiring and starting his own!

Now, after owning and operating his own multi-store operation for over 20 years, Randy is beginning to pass the torch on to the next generation. Little by little he is passing on some of the massive amount of information he has stored in his brain from his lifetime in hardware.

Randy is an active member of the Broadway-Timberville Business Council (formerly Chamber of Commerce) and the Rotary Club of Broadway-Timberville, of which he has served many years as an officer. He has also served as an officer of the Bowhunters of Rockingham for many years.

Shirley Andes

Shirley is the Co-owner of Randy's Hardware and as anyone will tell you, she's the boss. She's the one who makes sure things get done.

Shirley spent her career as the Office Manager for what was then known as Howell Metal. Besides being able to fix just about anything, find anything in the store, and remember even the minutest detail, she is also one mean cook!

Christian Herrick

Christian is the Chief Executive Officer and Randy & Shirley's son-in-law. He started as a part-time floor sweeper and inventory taker in Timberville, then a manager in training before he opened the Bridgewater store as Store Manager in 2011. He was Store Manager for almost three years before being promoted to Vice President of Retail Operations. After 2.5 years in that position, he was promoted to CEO.

In 2016, Christian was recognized as one of eight Young Retailers of the Year by the North American Retail Hardware Association. This industry award is a rare honor and one which we are proud of Christian for accomplishing.

Christian is currently a Board member of Rockingham Educational Foundation, Inc. and the Farmer's and Merchants Bank Community Advisory Board.

Austin Diehl

Austin Diehl is the Director of Retail Operations for Randy's Hardware, Inc. He was promoted to this position after serving as a Store Manager for the Timberville store for nearly three years. Austin was recruited by a former employee and by Christian from a local big box store to come work for Randy's Hardware after finding the work/life balance not working out in his favor.

Austin grew up in the Winchester, VA area and moved to Harrisonburg to attend James Madison University.

Adam Liskey

Adam started as a part-time sales clerk in the Bridgewater store. He quickly became a full-time clerk and helped open that store from the very beginning. After about two years on the sales floor, he entered the management team as the Bridgewater Team Leader. After about a year as the Team Leader Adam was promoted to his current position as Operations Manager.

Adam's past experience includes all things computers and home improvement. His father is a well-known local contractor who kept Adam busy throughout his childhood.

Rachel Herrick

Rachel jokes that her sister got a car for her 16th birthday and yet for her birthday, she got a hardware store. That experience shows, however, whenever a project needs to get done. Rachel has a degree from JMU in Theater and works steadily as a costume designer, but as part of the family, she also puts in regular hours here at the family business.


Sarah Berry

Sarah is the Marketing Coordinator for Randy’s Hardware. She studied nursing at Blue Ridge Community College and comes to us after spending time in the medical field and the past 14 years raising her family. She is active in several local non-profits. Sarah also serves on the Timberville Town Council.
