Brian McNally appointed Rexel North America EVP and CEO
By Anthony Capkun
July 24, 2014 – Rexel Group has appointed Brian McNally to the newly created position of executive vice-president and CEO of Rexel North America effective August 1, 2014. He becomes a member of Rexel’s Executive Committee, and is in charge of both Canadian and U.S. businesses. Rexel operates two separate networks in Canada: Nedco and Westburne.
Rexel Group says this leadership change comes in the wake of the previously announced decision by EVP and CEO of Rexel Holdings USA, Christopher Hartmann, to leave the company, as well as Jeff Hall’s recent decision to retire as senior vice-president and CEO of Rexel Canada Electrical Inc. after 21 years with the company. Both Chris and Jeff were members of Rexel’s Executive Committee.
Brian joins Rexel from Arrow Electronics Inc., where he worked for over 30 years in a variety of leadership positions in both the States and Europe.
