Graybar Canada recently announced the retirement of Brian Thomas, its executive vice president and general manager, effective March 1, 2020. He will be succeeded by Jason Taylor upon his retirement.
Thomas joined Harris & Roome, Graybar Canada’s predecessor, in 1987. Throughout his 39-year career in the electrical industry, Thomas has occupied a variety of sales and senior management positions before being promoted to executive vice president and general manager in 2016.
“I will miss the amazing people and the great culture we have here at Graybar Canada,” said Thomas. “The effort our people put in everyday to meet our vision of being the best partner to our customers and suppliers makes me proud and honoured to have been able to lead here.”
Taylor joined Graybar Canada in 1996 and has held many positions at the company, including customer service, finance, operations and VP Central Canada before being named VP Atlantic Canada in 2017.
During his 24 years with the company, Taylor has proven to be a leader in the organization and looks forward to helping the company continue in its success.
“Graybar Canada has thrived under Brian’s leadership; he leaves the company well positioned for future growth,” said Taylor. “I’m excited and feel privileged to lead our company while continuing to meet the high expectations of our customers, vendors and employees.”
