Winsupply Promotes SVP & VP of Vendor Relations

Vendor relations is the principal liaison between Winsupply and its preferred and large vendors.

Winsupply Inc. has promoted Eddie Gibbs to senior vice president of vendor relations and Amy Souders to vice president of vendor relations.

Vendor relations is the principal liaison between Winsupply and its preferred and large vendors, and negotiates all aspects of vendor agreements including access to product lines, the national distributor explained. The vendor relations team also works with buying groups and various trade associations.

“I’m pleased Amy will be able to work alongside Eddie for the foreseeable future to not only continue to learn from Eddie’s decades of experience, but to create a smooth transition at the time Eddie decides to retire,” said John McKenzie, president of Winsupply Support Services. "Amy will continue to report to Eddie and manage relationships with our finished plumbing vendors.”

Gibbs began his career in 1971 with Hughes Supply and later joined Noland Co. in 2003. Winsupply acquired Noland in 2005. 

Souders began her career at Noland Co. in 2001 in their management trainee program. She became a showroom consultant before moving to Noland headquarters as a corporate showroom trainer and eventually corporate showroom manager in 2006. She relocated to Dayton in 2008 and became finished plumbing product marketing manager in 2012.

Winsupply has nearly 600 wholesaling locations in 45 states.
