Charleston, S.C. (February 19, 2020) – Sonepar USA, a subsidiary of the privately held Sonepar Group, announced today that Joe LeNoir, President of Irby Utility, will assume management responsibility for Sonepar USA’s utility and broadband/telecom business (excluding California), all of which will go to market under the Irby brand.
