In this role, Drummond will accelerate sales growth and expansion for Lawless represented lines in the industrial MRO and MEP channels, company officials said in a news release. His responsibilities will be to collaborate with the Lawless Group regions and corporate team to maximize vertical strategies and opportunities and build market intelligence and expertise for all Lawless regions, customers, and end users. In tandem with the corporate marketing team, he will help develop resources and educational training to provide greater capabilities for Lawless customers.

“Jay’s familiarity with end users, distributors, manufacturers, as well as, buying groups in the channel, make him uniquely qualified to help us grow and exceed the expectations of all our partners,” CEO Jack Templin said.
