July 22, 2020 – Eaton’s Matt Cleary, vice-president, Channel–Electrical Sector, will retire in early September, after nearly four decades with the company. Will Green, meantime, has been named his replacement, reporting to Molly Murphy, senior vice-president, North American Sales.
Cleary joined Eaton in 1981 as a sales engineer. Among his many roles, he was a sales integration leader for Eaton’s Cooper Industries acquisition, and has served on the National Electrical Manufacturers Representative Association (NEMRA) board since 2018.
“[Matt] has been an invaluable member of the Eaton team and, for the past year, he has been working closely with Will Green to enable a seamless transition for our channel partners,” said Murphy.
Green has been Eaton’s vice-president, U.S. Channel Operations and U.S. Sales, North American Sales. In his new role, effective September 1, Green will be responsible for leading Eaton’s operations and teams supporting electrical distributors and other channel partners.
