Summit Electric Supply (Albuquerque, NM): David Meeks has joined the company’s leadership team as V.P. of supply chain operations. Meeks was recently the integration project manager and region operations and supply chain manager for Hagemeyer North America IDG, an indirect industrial supplier that now operates as Vallen Distribution. Meeks served on the corporate operations team and was project manager for the overall operations merger of Hagemeyer North America and IDG, which included gap analysis of processes and software between the two enterprise resource planning systems. He will report to Summit’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Victor Jury Jr. and be based out of Summit’s Houston, Texas offices.
Meeks will manage Summit’s service center logistics as well as the company’s quality management system The Summit Way. He’ll also oversee Summit’s central replenishment, purchasing, inventory management, and rebate administration. He began his career with Cameron & Barkley Co., the electrical and industrial distributor which was later acquired by Hagemeyer, and quickly advanced from the warehouse into numerous positions in sales before eventually leading branch and operations management.
In his recent roles at Vallen, Meeks directed operations and supply chain for multiple regions. He also developed regional strategic programs for procurement, Lean processes, and new customer implementations, while consistently exceeding working capital goals.
