Jahida Nadi

Executive Vice President and General Manager at Hilti North America


Nadi believes that investing in people is one of the most powerful things you can do to deliver top results. At Hilti, which produces power tools and software for construction professionals, her focus is on people development, building a strong organizational culture, productivity, and top- and bottom-line growth. Nadi started to make an impact early on in her 14-year-and-counting stint at the company. In one of her first roles as a Regional Sales Manager, she led a team of account managers as they exceeded their annual sales forecast and grew 25% over the prior year. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many construction sites remained open while offices were closed across the U.S. and the world, and Hilti supported them with tool hygiene guides and solutions to help keep productivity up while reducing contact between people. Hilti was named a Mosaic Inclusive Workplace in 2018 and won an International Great Place to Work Award in 2017.
