MILWAUKEE - HellermannTyton North America National Sales Manager Jason Hill was recently named chairman of the NAED Manufacturers Council. He will serve this role until mid-year 2019.
A proud voice for the manufacturing side, Hill’s commitment to the electrical industry is inclusive. He seeks ways to enhance relationships between distributors, manufacturers and the association itself.
“Where distributors and manufacturers have traditionally been siloed, we’re bridging the gap,” said Hill. “We’ve got a talented team, and I believe we’re going to make important changes quickly.”
Hill has been an active member of the NAED Manufacturers Council for four years. His primary focus – and passion – has been member recruitment and retention. Appropriately, that was a major theme at this year’s annual manufacturers’ forum, which took place May 19 at the NAED National Meeting. Hill and three colleagues served as panelists to discuss this and other industry disruptors.
NAED is the trade association for the $70+ billion electrical distribution industry. Through networking, education, research and benchmarking, NAED helps electrical distributors increase profitability and improve the channel. NAED’s membership represents more than 5,100 locations internationally.
