Summit Electric Supply Promotes Houston, Phoenix Leaders

Summit Electric Supply has promoted electrical industry veterans Rodney Ilseng and Craig Rusk to the positions of service center leaders in Houston and Phoenix, respectively.

 Ilseng succeeds Dan Ferrari, who has been promoted to regional vice president of the Gulf Coast region.

“Rodney’s broad experience in servicing the unique needs of the Gulf Coast market, as well as his experience in the electrical industry itself, makes him uniquely qualified to take the helm of our Houston location,” said President and CEO Victor R. Jury Jr.

Ilseng has been involved in electrical distribution since 1983. He joined Summit in April 2003. He most recently had been holding a dual role as service center leader in the Clute, Texas, location and as Summit's industrial strategic accounts manager in the Gulf Coast.

As Houston service center leader, he is responsible for sales and operations of the 62-member location, focusing on both industrial and commercial accounts. Ilseng holds a bachelor's degree in business administration from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas.

Craig Rusk succeeds Scott Cogan, who has been promoted to regional vice president of the Southwest Region.

“Craig is a talented businessman whose commitment to the customer and long experience at Summit will undoubtedly continue Summit’s tradition of customer service excellence across Arizona,” Jury said.

Rusk, a graduate of Arizona State University, joined Summit in 1993, becoming a consistently top performing account manager, focusing on industrial clients.

 “I look forward to increasing Summit’s customer and vendor relationships in the Phoenix metro area and beyond,” Rusk said. “We are well positioned for growth here.” 

Summit has operated in the Phoenix market since 1991 and employs 40 associates in its Phoenix location.
