Graybar Appoints Chicago District VP

Company veteran Steven Bourbeau will lead operations in portions of Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin.

Electrical and industrial supplies distributor Graybar named Steven Bourbeau as the company’s new District Vice President for Chicago, effective June 1.

A 29-year company veteran, Bourbeau joined the company in 1995. He currently serves as Director of Finance in Chicago, a position he has held since 2005. As District VP, he will lead Graybar’s business operations in a territory that includes portions of Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin.

“Steve has extensive knowledge of the markets served by the Chicago District and is highly respected for his business acumen, his customer focus, and his ability to achieve results,” Graybar Senior VP and General Manager Dennis DeSousa said in a news release. “I look forward to working with him to serve our customers and grow our business in this region.”

On May 2, Graybar reported that its 2024 first quarter sales were $2.7 billion, up 2.2% year-over-year and a company record for the first three months of the year.

Graybar’s network spans more than 345 North American distribution facilities.
