TOP 100 GLOBAL SALES LEADERS 2019

Bill Hoyt

Vice President, Strategic Accounts
Graybar

In August, Graybar, the distributor of electrical, communications and data-networking products, signaled plans to expand aggressively when it renegotiated a deal to extend its borrowing power to the tune of $1 billion. For Hoyt, the expanded borrowing power — implemented to invest in innovation and growth over the coming years — could translate into a whole new portfolio of products or simply bolster his already strong sales team. “We are delighted to welcome Bill to the Graybar team,” Graybar Senior Vice President of Sales Dave Maxwell said shortly after Hoyt’s appointment in January . “Bill is a proven leader with a strong track record of success, and I am confident he will play a key role in growing our business and bringing innovative solutions to our strategic account customers.”
