The Ft. Collins Team
We were able to catch a few of Ft. Collins' salespeople between sales calls for a quick photo. Roger Glanz, the branch's owner and president is fourth from the right.
Roger Glanz, President and Owner of Fort Collins Winlectric
Roger Glanz, has been the president and owner of Fort Collins Winlectric since 1985 and has seen his company grow along with the city, which has benefited from expansion of tech firms in the area, construction at Colorado State University, a vibrant downtown, a booming microbrewery, and an unbeatable location near some of Colorado’s best fishing, whitewater rafting, mountain biking and other outdoor activities.
The WinWholesale Way
WinWholesale’s core growth strategy is providing entrepreneurs with the opportunities to have ownership stakes in their own local distributors and providing this local talent with the operational tools and support to succeed. It’s a concept that attracted Roger Glanz to the company from his former career as an electrical contractor over 30 years ago.
Helping Other Winlectric Entrepreneurs Suceed
Over the past three decades, Roger has helped other entrepreneurs at Winlectric build their local businesses. Winwholesale's local owners network often with fellow owners in the WinWholesale family, which includes distribution companies in the plumbing, HVAC, industrial, fastener and waterworks industries
Local Presence Backed by WinWholesale Corporate Services
Rick Nowak, electrical product marketing manager (right), helps provide Roger and the other Winlectric owners with the tools they need in their local markets. Nowak spends quite a bit of his time at the local branches, but also works directly with electrical manufacturers, IMARK and WinWholesale corporate executives at the company's Dayton, Ohio, headquarters.
Colorado State University as a Customer
Several construction projects now underway on or near the Colorado State University campus include student housing and a residential development on the western edge of town. Roger says Colorado State's in-house electrical crew does much of the electrical work on campus and that the university has been a good customer over the years.
