June 22, 2023Elliott Electric Supply Forms Board of Directors

2023 Elliott Electric Supply Board of Directors Our new Board of Directors reflects our focus on internally-directed management of Elliott Electric Supply. Elliott managers make up six of the seven board members. Rusty Rust, President of Commercial Bank of Texas, is the only non-employee. Robert Flores was elected Chairman, and Bill Elliott was elected president. The remaining four board members are Phil Hale, Doug Blevins, Greg Fitzgerald, and Chris Petty. These board members who will lead our company have over 200 years of collective experience in the electrical industry.

Among other business, Blevins, Rust, and Elliott were appointed to a search committee to identify a replacement for Elliott as president. With more than 50 years invested in the company, Bill feels that his age dictates the need for a younger person in his role. He will remain with the company until the new president is comfortable in their position.
