Graybar Canada has appointed Cory Morris as its vice-president for the Atlantic region, effective April 6, 2020.

Morris began his career with Graybar Canada in 2008 as a marketing assistant during a university co-op placement.

Throughout his 12-year career in the industry, Morris has held many positions and completed Graybar Canada’s Manager in Development program in 2015. The three-year program gave him the opportunity to experience all levels of the company – from warehouse and counter sales, to finance and branch management.

Morris then moved to the automation group, where he became a services and solutions specialist before being appointed to automation manager, Atlantic, in 2018.
