Womack Electric Supply Co., a Danville, Virginia-based subsidiary of Crescent Electric Supply Co., last week announced that its president, Burke Herring, will retire after nearly four decades of service with the company.

“Over the course of his 37 years with Womack Electric Supply, Burke’s unwavering commitment to our employees, customers, and supplier partners speaks for itself,” said Scott Teerlinck, president and CEO of Crescent Electric. “He is a respected veteran, who leaves behind a legacy of strong leadership, integrity and dedication that is unparalleled. On behalf of the entire Crescent organization, I want to personally thank him for all he has done for us and for the industry, and we certainly wish him, his wife Ginny, and his entire family the best during his retirement.”

Burke, pictured right, began his career at Womack in November 1983 and has played an integral part in the company’s growth during that time.

“I want to express my sincere gratitude to our team at Womack and the Crescent organization, as it has been an honor to serve our company and this industry all of these years,” Herring said. “I value not just the partnerships we’ve made over the past four decades, but more importantly, the friendships, and I certainly look forward to continuing those in retirement.”

Al Stewart, who has served as Greensboro district manager for the past 12 years, will take over as area vice president/president of Womack Electric Supply. Stewart and Herring will work in conjunction with the Crescent executive management team to ensure a smooth transition.
