Graybar Electric, St. Louis, appointed Randy Harwood to its board of directors and named Craig Mead as district vice president for the company's Phoenix regional operations. Both appointments resulted from the retirement of Bob Nowak, who served for more than 39 years with the company, most recently as district vice president in Phoenix and a member of Graybar's board.
Harwood is currently district vice president in the Dallas region. In his 31-year Graybar career, he has advanced through several financial management roles in Portland, Ore., Spokane, Wash., Phoenix, Las Vegas and Seattle before being named to his current position in 2004.
Mead's Graybar career spans 23 years, during which he managed the Albuquerque, N.M., El Paso, Texas, and Phoenix branches, and served as director of electrical sales within the Phoenix region.
