April 19, 2013 – John Eggleton has joined Affiliated Distributors—a North American wholesale marketing group—as its new U.S. Electrical Division President. Eggleton comes to A-D after serving for 10 years as CEO of A-D’s sister company, supplyFORCE.
“John brings a great mix of leadership, humility, operational experience, sales and negotiation experience, managerial skills and customer care,” said Bill Weisberg, A-D chair and CEO. “John’s passion for the cause of independents and his collaborative team-oriented approach to business will be well received by our members and suppliers.”
“It’s an honour to be joining such a great organization. In working closely with AD Team Members, Affiliates and Suppliers for the past 12 years, I have always admired the group’s passion, initiative and results,” said Eggleton. “I look forward to working with the talented and dynamic Electrical Division Team in driving value for our stakeholders.”
“David Oldfather’s nine-year tenure at the helm of the Electrical Division brought foundational stability and growth opportunities which will continue to flourish under John’s leadership. We wish David the best in his future endeavours,” added Weisberg.
