Turtle & Hughes names global sourcing executive

Turtle & Hughes announced that executive vice president Randy Roessle will assume global strategic sourcing responsibilities for both its Electrical Distribution and Integrated Supply Divisions.

“Our national and international growth demands a strong liaison to the vendor community,” said chairman and CEO Jayne Millard upon making the announcement. “Randy’s many years of experience in industrial automation sales and vendor negotiations make him the ideal candidate.”

The company also announced the creation of a dedicated Rockwell Automation sales department in the New York and New Jersey regions. Billy Wresch, formerly vice president of Turtle & Hughes’ Mid-Island Electrical Supply subsidiary, has been named vice president of Industrial Automation sales and will lead the new department.

“We have performed very well in both the commercial and industrial market segments,” says Wresch. “Our long-time partner, Rockwell Automation, is introducing new technology that requires customer interaction on a new level. I’m looking forward to working with our talented specialists and salespeople so, together, we can continue to build on our success.”

In his new position, Wresch will oversee all of the company’s Rockwell Automation franchised branches in the New York and New Jersey regions. He will work closely with those Branch Managers to support and expand the company’s Rockwell Automation product and services line.
