Wayne, Pennsylvania-based buying group AD on Wednesday announced that it has appointed Mike Carr as president of the organization’s Industrial and Safety – U.S. and Safety Network divisions, effective Feb. 16.

Carr brings more than 30 years of experience in the industrial MRO and safety channels, and most recently served as vice president of Snap-on Industrial Brands at AD supplier partner Snap-on Inc. Carr will report to Jack Templin, AD’s Electrical and Industrial Business Unit president and its chief programs officer.

“Mike brings extensive experience and a shared passion for working with independent distributors,” Templin said. “He’ll be a powerful leader to drive financial performance for these divisions, cultivate relationships with members and suppliers, and collaborate with our divisional boards and committees.”

Said Carr: “I’ve seen firsthand how the partnership between AD’s members and suppliers help them both surpass the market. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to take this role where I can further facilitate those relationships for the good of our divisions’ independent members.”
