Gambino returns to P&S/Legrand as president and CEO

Michael Gambino has returned to Pass & Seymour/Legrand as its new president and chief executive officer after leaving the company five years ago to start his own consulting firm and create, an online stocking distributorship of hard-to-find electrical products.

Gambino served as Pass & Seymour/Legrand's vice president of sales and marketing from 1992 to 1996.

Gambino started his new position at Pass & Seymour/Legrand on Jan. 1. Tom Edmonds had been acting president of the company.

“It's the only job in corporate America I would consider,” Gambino said. “I like the people, I like the company, I like the industry. It's one of those matches that makes a lot of sense for all of us.”

Gambino plans to build on the foundation that P&S developed over the past 10 years. “This is not a turnaround situation,” he said. “This is building on a great foundation and trying to position another leader in the industry. That's really what we want to do. We want to be a good contributor to the industry in all ways, but also be a highly valued company to its customers.”
