Before joining GME, Keogh held several commercial and operational leadership positions, most recently as the Chief Commercial Officer at the Pearlman Group — a multi-channel developer and distributor of supplies, tools and equipment for specialty contractors. Before Pearman, he led commercial and operational functions at businesses in the produce & food distribution industries.

“Ryan brings tremendous commercial and operational leadership experience to GME,” said GME’s CEO, Caleb Messer. “He was the clear choice to join our team after an exhaustive national search based on his track record of leading high-growth companies through the changes they faced while simultaneously improving workforce engagement and culture.”

“I could not be more excited about joining the great team at GME Supply,” Keogh added. “They have distinguished themselves as world-class service partners for their customers and suppliers, and the dedicated team of employees throughout the US and Canada is truly their value proposition. As a digitally enabled distributor that leads with innovation and service, the GME Supply platform has unlimited potential. I’m honored to be a part of the next stage of GME’s growth.”
