Sonepar USA announced on Wednesday that Dana Mouritzen has been named as the next president of its West Region. Mouritzen, who was previously president of OneSource Distributors, will start his new job at Sonepar USA on July 1.
Mouritzen will replace current West Region President Jon Mitchell, who is a 50-year industry veteran, but the two will work together over the next month to insure a smooth transition.
“Dana has done a tremendous job leading OneSource over the past five years,” said Rob Taylor, President of Sonepar North America. “He is a results and process driven leader who applies data analytics to develop and execute very successful customer-focused strategies.
“We are fortunate to have someone with his broad experience and talent leading the deployment of our strategic plan for the West Region.”
Mouritzen started his career in the industry as a field sales representative for Orange County Wholesale Electric, which was later acquired by OneSource. Prior to becoming president of One Source in 2016, he held various sales and leadership positions.
Mouritzen has a BS degree in Electrical Engineering from California Polytechnic University, Pomona, and an MBA from University of California at Irvine.
