Dakota Supply Group (DSG) has named John Gearman as its electrical segment manager. Gearman will take over the position from Mike Tupa, who was recently named DSG’s chief segment officer. In addition to his role as electrical segment manager, Gearman will continue to serve as DSG’s automation segment manager.
Gearman has worked for DSG since 1985. Starting out in the automation control panel shop, Gearman transitioned through the company, working in positions at the city desk and in outside sales until he was named automation segment manager in 2005. He took on the role of Sioux Falls branch manager in 2010.
“John’s background in the automation industry and his leadership experience made him the ideal person to fill this role,” Tupa said. “The future of our electrical segment is in good hands.”
