February 6, 2024 – Steve Boccadoro, senior vice-president and general manager of Eaton’s electrical business in Canada, will be retiring after nearly four decades with the company. His successor is Chris Fluit.

“Throughout his career, Steve was known for his impactful, empathetic leadership and strong track record of success for our customers, employees, and operations in North America,” said Fernando Ceccarelli, president of Eaton’s Protection, Control and Solutions division.

Boccadoro joined Eaton in 1987 as an internal auditor and, among many roles, served as senior vice-president, Corporate Sales and Marketing, Eaton, before moving back to Canada in 2014 to assume the role of senior vice-president and general manager.

“He has been an invaluable member of the Eaton team, and is working closely with Chris Fluit to enable a seamless transition,” Ceccarelli added. “I wish Steve the best in his next adventure, and know Chris’ extensive leadership experience positions him for success in his new role.”


Fluit has been part of Eaton’s team for more than 20 years, holding multiple leadership roles. Most recently, he served as the business unit manager for Eaton’s Electrical Engineering Services and Critical Power and Digital Infrastructure businesses in Canada.

In his role as senior vice-president and general manager, Canada, Fluit will lead Eaton’s electrical business in Canada, which includes direct oversight of operations, services, sales, marketing, supply chain, finance, and human resources.

These changes become effective April 1, 2024.
