David Wax elected chairman of Network Services Company
David Wax, executive vice president of US distributor Waxie Sanitary Supply, has been elected by the Board of Directors as the chairman of Network - the distributor for supply chain professionals managing multi-site programs - for a two-year term. David has held numerous positions within Network over the past 25 years, including vice chairman, and has been active in various committees.
He will lead the Network Board of Directors and the Network membership, aligning with strategic suppliers and key customers globally.
David started his full-time career with Waxie in 1977, progressing in roles through customer service, purchasing, sales, and sales management. When Waxie acquired a Salt Lake City distributor of sanitary maintenance supplies in 1984, David relocated to Utah to serve as general manager. In 1988, he accepted the role of division manager for the company's Los Angeles operations. He moved back to San Diego in 1994 to oversee marketing and then later took on the leadership role for the company's corporate accounts initiative. In 2012 David became the executive vice president of Waxie's California branches.
"All of us within Network, look forward to working closely with David and capitalising on his experience, creativity, and ideas as he leads our Board of Directors," says Alan Tomblin, president and CEO of Network. "Our supplier community and our Network customers can count on David for his continued support and commitment to growth and service excellence."
David says of his appointment: "I am honoured to accept the position as chairman and look forward to the opportunity to serve our membership and our customers. Network is a dynamic organisation and I am proud to play a part in our continued success."
