Mayer has recently added three associates to help build sales and market share in the industrial, commercial and institutional customer market segments. “We’re not a niche player in the wholesale-distribution business,” stated Wes Smith, Mayer’s President. “It has been our strategy since the 1970s to serve customers in all market segments; it just happens that we’ve done so well in the construction segment over the past two decades, that it is time we invested more in the non-contractor market segments. To help foster growth in these areas, we’ve brought on three outstanding people.”
Recently joining the Mayer teams are:
Bill Stone, Vice President, Industrial & Commercial Business Development. Bill will be located in Mayer’s Birmingham, Alabama Corporate Offices.
