LoneStar Electric Supply (Houston, TX): The company recently welcomed Joe Jones to its board of directors. As a member of the LoneStar board, Jones will bring his expert knowledge of the electrical industry, his lifelong relationships with vendors and customers, as well as his passion to provide solutions to help Lonestar deliver superior service. He retired in 2012 after serving for 54 years at Wholesale Electric Supply Co., most recently as senior executive VP and general manager.
“It’s quite an honor for us to add Mr. Jones to our board of directors,” said Jeff Metzler, CEO of Lonestar in the press release. “He’s highly regarded – certainly by me – but, also throughout our industry and has enjoyed a legendary career. We’re delighted that he is bringing his lifetime of experience as an independent electrical distributor to our team to better serve our customers.”
Jones said in the release, “Lonestar Electric is a good company filled with good people. They’re an independent distributor, which I like, because I was one as well. They’ve been very successful. I thought that if I could help them in any way, then I want to be a help to them.”
