New Rexel Product Managers - For Lighting & Datacom

Rexel Inc., one of the largest electrical distributors in the U.S., now has new Lighting + Dataacom product managers.

Rexel Inc. has restructured product management positions in its Dallas corporate office.

Robert Stroescu is now Product Manager - Lighting and Erynn Mullinax Keenen is now Product Manager - Datacom.

Stroescu was Product Manager for Datacom. He replaces Karl Williams, who was promoted from the Lighting position recently to Director of Product Management. "Lighting is a major category for Rexel, accounting for roughly one -fifth of our sales dollars," said John Kudlacek, vice president of marketing and purchasing.

Stroescu joined Rexel's marketing department in 2000 as a market analyst. In his Datacom position, he launched the Gigamedia product and was instrumental in development of the company's Conectis/Strategic Datacom business.

Keenen came to Rexel in 1992, taking a position at its Kansas City branch. She transferred to Dallas in 1999, where she has worked in various Datacom positions. "We continue to regard Datacom as a core growth opportunity," Kudlacek noted.

Keenen and Stroescu are two of the company's five product managers; all report to Williams at Rexel's Dallas national headquarters.
