Sonepar USA Promotes West Region President
CHARLESTON, S.C. — Sonepar USA, a subsidiary of the privately held Sonepar Group, announced that Dana Mouritzen has been named as President for the West Region, following 50-year industry veteran Jon Mitchell.
Transitioning from his current role as President of OneSource Distributors, Mouritzen will assume the post as of July 1.
“Dana has done a tremendous job leading OneSource over the past five years,” said Rob Taylor, President of Sonepar North America. “He is a results and process driven leader who applies data analytics to develop and execute very successful customer-focused strategies,” he added. “We are fortunate to have someone with his broad experience and talent leading the deployment of our strategic plan for the West Region.”
Mouritzen began his career in the industry as a Field Sales Representative for Orange County Wholesale Electric, which was later acquired by OneSource. Before becoming President of One Source in 2016, Mouritzen held various sales and leadership positions that expanded his scope and responsibilities. His impressive credentials include a BS degree in Electrical Engineering from California Polytechnic University, Pomona, and an MBA from University of California at Irvine.
“I am honored to take up the mantle from a leader as accomplished, respected, and passionate as Jon Mitchell,” said Mouritzen. “I am also energized by the strength of this team and the opportunity in front of us.”
Mitchell and Mouritzen will be working together over the next month to provide a smooth transition for the West Region.Tagged with top 20
