Würth Industry North America appoints two executives

Würth Industry North America (WINA) announced it is adding two individuals to its executive team.

Heather Stewart brings many years of supply chain experience to her role as vice president, supply chain officer. She will manage all aspects of the supply chain processes for WINA. Having extensive experience with SAP, she will also work to fulfill the conversion to the program. “Mrs. Stewart will provide the assistance and resources to manage and further develop our current supply base by improving gross profit, increasing inventory turns and reducing freight costs,” says executive vice president Marc Strandquist.

Stewart’s professional background includes chief supply chain officer of Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare; vice president, supply chain at Pettibone Heavy Equipment Group; director of global procurement of Blount International Inc.; and director of supply chain of Lubrication Technologies.

Eric Wilk will join WINA as director of key accounts. He will oversee all national accounts for WINA, leading company efforts to maintain and expand relationships with large, multi-location customers. Wilk will represent the entire range of Würth products and services, lead customer planning cycles, be the point of continuity for customer headquarters, and ensure effective communication between the customer and WINA locations. He will also be the point of contact with Würth Industry companies in Europe and Asia.

Wilk most recently served as region manager in the central U.S. for Gexpro Services and worked for the company for the past 10 years. He brings a deep understanding of providing supply chain solutions, diverse customer segments, as well as geographic markets.

“I’m excited to have Eric join the Würth team,” says Strandquist. “He adds valuable talent and a lot of experience to our group during a time of high sales growth. The timing couldn’t be better for both Heather and Erik to jump on board and help WINA continue to grow and gain market share.”
