While detailed plans are still being developed, Mayer Electric Supply has announced its intention to open in the Houston area with the hiring of two veterans of that geographic market and the electrical distribution industry.
Robert Fields, formerly president of Wholesale Electric Supply in Houston, has joined Mayer along with Greg Hall, most recently the senior vice president of sales for Wholesale Electric.
“What an opportunity we have with these two high caliber people joining the Mayer team,” said Wes Smith, Mayer’s president. “The chance to begin our operations in Houston and neighboring markets with guys like this is a very big deal for us and we simply could not be more excited.”
Before joining Wholesale in 2004, Fields spent 33 years with Crouse-Hinds in Houston, in sales, sales management, and marketing and product development. He also spent time as the Cooper Connection regional VP where he worked with sales teams across multiple Cooper divisions.
Hall has been in the electrical distribution industry since 1982 and spent 20 of those years with Warren Electric Supply in Houston before joining Wholesale and now Mayer.
In 2012 Mayer made its first move into Texas with the acquisition of Mustang Electric Supply in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The Mustang operation is in the process of an expansion that will result in added square footage of warehouse, counter and office space.
“Almost anyone who has been in the business any amount of time knows what Mayer brings to the table,” Fields said. “In my observations and those of suppliers that I’ve consulted with, the Mayer organization is certainly one of the best I’ve ever seen.”
