Jeff Norris Hired to Lead Summit’s La Porte Service Center

ALBUQUERQUE, NM –­ Summit Electric Supply has hired Jeff Norris as service center leader of its La Porte, Texas location. Norris joins Summit just as renovation of the La Porte service center gets underway.

Norris has worked in electrical distribution for nearly 25 years in Oklahoma and northern Texas. He’s overseen product commodity growth, directed sales teams, and managed custom solutions for large industrial contractors, including onsite supply chain management. Norris also led sales and operations for multiple distribution centers and was recently the regional business development manager for a large international distributor.

“Jeff has a strong industrial sales background, which will serve him well with our La Porte group,” says Gulf Coast Region Vice President Dan Ferrari.

Norris says Summit is uniquely positioned to serve the growing needs of Gulf Coast customers, especially as growth potential along the Houston ship channel and south Houston industrial area continues to soar. “Summit can adapt to the growing needs of our customer base quickly,” Norris adds, “providing unparalleled customer service, innovative cost savings, and productivity growth all within a low-cost infrastructure.”

Summit’s reputation for adaptive customer service is even what drove Norris to join the company. In his new position, he’ll continue to focus on industrial contractor business while expanding the service center’s reach into commercial markets. He’ll also use the service center’s ongoing renovation to better meet the needs of customers. Along with remodeling the office spaces, Summit is adding 15,000 square feet to La Porte’s warehouse and 30,000 square feet to its pipe and conduit storage yard.

Founded in 1977, the company operates service centers in 27 U.S. markets and in Dubai, UAE.
