Welcome to the Family

IMG_0063At DWC, we value being a Disruptive, Chaotic Force, not only within the electrical distribution industry, but also within our DWC Family. We are pleased to announce our new Chief Operating Officer, Dave Coy. He’s going to help us shake things up.

Dave became part of our DWC Family on October 13, 2014, and is helping us develop our family to its fullest potential. He comes to us with years of valuable experience. As COO he will oversee People Development, Marketing, Digital Innovation, Sales and Logistics. He will not only give us his expert advice, but also challenge everyone to think outside the box.

In addition, Dave is helping us get organized. He brought his black-belt in Six Sigma, 5s and LEAN. All of this will not only benefit the DWC Family, but also our customers.

Don’t worry if all of this sounds like a foreign language. It did to us at first too. As one of Dave’s first tasks, he helped us to get organized, and stay organized, so we can eliminate waste and increase productivity. What does this mean to you, our customer? Your orders will arrive even faster, with fewer errors. For all of us at DWC, this means greater efficiency, and fewer mistakes.

Before Dave joined the DWC Family, he worked for Newmont Gold as the Director of Global Continuous Improvement. During his time there, he helped Newmont run LEAN and eliminate waste.

Dave is a world traveler, rock star and service man. His home roots are in Kansas City, but he has lived all over the world. Dave’s travels have taken him to Australia, Indonesia, Africa, Canada and just about every state in the U.S. One day he plans to visit Ireland, Germany and other European points of interest.

Dave hasn’t landed his first recording deal yet, but he can whip out a mean guitar solo when the moment calls for one. Someday he hopes to learn another instrument, but for now he will stick to the guitar.

Not only, does he enjoy donating his time to Holiday’s For Kids where he wraps presents for children in need, but he also served three years in the U.S. Army. During his time in the Army, Dave was assigned to a conflict in the Caribbean in 1984. His unit guarded an island there for 120 days. He was honorably discharged from the Army in 1986 as a Corporal Military Policeman.

We are very proud to call Dave a member of the DWC Family, and are excited about learning more from him.
