EFC Welcomes YPN National Committee Chair and Atlantic Region Executive Committee Chair

January 7, 2024

Cory Morris, Graybar Canada, has been appointed Chair of the YPN National Committee for a two-year term.

Cory is Vice President of the Atlantic Region for Graybar Canada and has been with the company, and in the electrical industry, for 15 years. Based in Halifax, NS, Cory is a graduate of Saint Mary’s University where he studied business.

Cory has been involved with EFC and YPN in several roles since 2019, including being a member of the EFC Executive Committee, Vice Chair and Chair of the YPN Atlantic Committee, and now Chair of the YPN National Committee after serving as the committee’s Vice Chair.

“We also would like to thank Past Chair Jonathan Perlis, Stanpro, for his commitment and dedication to advancing the interests of YPN both regionally and nationally,” said EFC.

“Please join us in congratulating Cory on this appointment. We look forward to Cory’s continued contributions and leadership to the YPN National Committee as Chair.”

EFC is pleased to announce Nathan Salmon as the new Chair of the Atlantic Region Executive Committee for a two-year term.

Nathan has served as Vice Chair on the Atlantic Region Executive Committee for the past three years and is currently the General Manager at Rexel Atlantic, one of the world’s largest electrical distribution companies. Nathan’s journey is defined by several notable achievements and a commitment to his community.

Born and raised in the Annapolis Valley, Nathan ventured west after attending Acadia University. He spent a decade thriving in the oil and gas sector, specializing in supply chain management. In 2013, he returned home to the City of Lakes with his family and made a career transition toward the electrical industry to align with evolving market trends.

Before joining Rexel Atlantic, Nathan held various roles in sales, ERP consulting, procurement, and pricing management, primarily within the construction sector.

Throughout his career, Nathan has consistently demonstrated dedication to excellence and results. In his spare time, he enjoys quality moments with his family, indulges in his passion for music and culture, and frequents the beach, particularly Hubbard’s Beach and the Shore Club. Nathan’s diverse skill set and unwavering commitment to making a positive impact position him as a valuable asset in both his professional endeavors and the communities he serves.

“We also would like to thank Past Chair Kevin Savage, Next Sales & Marketing, for his tireless commitment to advancing the interests of EFC in the Atlantic Region, and for successfully serving an extended three-year term due to the departure of previous Chair Bill Clark,” said EFC via press release.

“Please join us in welcoming Nathan as Chair of the Atlantic Region Executive Committee. We wish him every success in the role and look forward to his continued contributions to the region as Chair.”
