TOP 100 GLOBAL SALES LEADERS 2019

John Bowhay

Senior Vice President, Supply Chain Management, Valve and Technical Product Sales
MRC Global Inc.

The global distributor of pipes, valves, fittings, automation and measurement products tallied $1.08 billion in sales in the second quarter of 2018, up 17 percent year over year. Chief among the Houston-based distributor’s revenue generators was the gas-utility segment, in which sales skyrocketed 22 percent. Bowhay, a 16-year veteran with MRC who previously served as senior vice president of the company’s Asia Pacific and Middle East operations, leveraged his deep knowledge of valves to create solutions for the company’s biggest gas and oil clients. Indeed, expect another decade of results — and, hopefully, revenue growth — from MRC Global’s standout supply chain leader.
