In 2009, Graybar celebrated its 140th anniversary, and its 80th anniversary of employee ownership. During that time, the distributor of electrical and communications products has survived several down-cycles. President and CEO Robert A. Reynolds Jr. attributes much of the company's success to that employee ownership. "Because we are independent and employee-owned, we can focus on the long-term health of our company while working to the advantage of our manufacturers and customers." The company recently announced leadership changes in order to "drive strategic growth," including the appointment of a new vice president of comm/data, an area several electrical distributors are seeing as growth areas in the future.
