Graybar Canada announced the appointment of Cory Morris as the new Vice President, Atlantic Region, effective April 6, 2020. This appointment follows the recent assignment of Jason Taylor to Executive Vice President and General Manager.

Throughout his 12-year career in the industry, Cory held many positions including the completion of Graybar Canada’s Manager in Development program in 2015.

“I look forward to supporting and amplifying the excellent initiatives we’ve embarked upon, including our digital transformation strategy, our solution-focused sales approach and our aim to be the distributor of the future,” said Cory about is new role. “My priorities are our people, our customers, our partners and the sustainability of our industry. I feel very fortunate to work in a role where I can affect positive change and influence growth within an incredible company and industry that I’m passionate about.”
