Graybar Appoints Head of Acquisitions & Financial Planning

Christopher M. Burrow has been named Vice President of Acquisitions, Financial Planning and Analysis, effective July 5.

On June 28, St. Louis-based electrical, communications and data networking products distributor Graybar announced that Christopher M. Burrow has been named the company’s Vice President of Acquisitions, Financial Planning and Analysis, effective July 5.

Burrow has worked more than 24 years in accounting, financial planning and strategy. He currently serves as Graybar’s Director Financial Planning and Analysis, a position he has held for nearly four years, the company said.

In his new VP role, Burrow will continue to lead the FP&A function, while taking on responsibility for Graybar’s merger and acquisition process.

“We congratulate Chris on his promotion,” said David M. Meyer, Graybar’s Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “Chris has extensive knowledge and experience in finance and accounting, which provides a strong foundation for success in this expanded role. As Graybar continues to pursue growth through acquisitions, I am confident that he will sustain our focus and move our strategy forward.”
