Wesco's Scott Dowell on How to Thrive Amid Challenging Business Conditions

Wesco's senior vice president and general manager discusses how the company is able to "consistently make the right decisions."

As we continue to track consistent growth and development in the distribution industry, one thing is clear: distributors are getting bigger β€” and their customers are relying on them for more than ever before.

That means many expand not only their product offerings, but also add depth to their services and solutions portfolios – a tall order, indeed.

Today, we’re joined by Scott Dowell, senior vice president and general manager, Industrial and CIG at Wesco to chat about the market dynamics producing change and how major distributors like Wesco are responding.

Founded more than 100 years ago, Wesco specializes in solutions for communications and security, electrical and electronic components, utility and broadband systems, and, of course, industrial products. With $21 billion in annual revenue, the company serves as a critical supply chain partner for most U.S.-based Fortune 500 companies β€” with access to millions of products from its expansive global network of suppliers β€” and has been recognized by numerous publications and organizations for its commitment to diversity, inclusion, equity and sustainability.
