St. Louis-based electrical, communications and data networking distributor Graybar said Steven Breeden has been named district vice president for the company’s Seattle District.
Breeden is expected to begin his role July 1, Graybar said. He will replace Paul Hansen, who plans to retire as district VP after 39 years with the company.
Breeden has more than three decades of experience in the electrical industry and has worked for Graybar for more than 20 years. He currently serves as director of electrical and industrial sales in the Seattle District, a position he has held since 2017.
“We thank Paul Hansen for his many contributions to Graybar and wish him all the best in retirement,” said Dennis E. DeSousa, Graybar’s senior vice president and general manager. “We also congratulate Steve Breeden on his promotion to District Vice President. He is a highly respected leader within Graybar and throughout our industry. I look forward to working with him to grow our business and serve our customers in this region.”
