MSC Industrial Supply Co., (NYSE: MSM), Melville, NY, distributor of metalworking, maintenance, repair and operations supplies, announced that Martina McIsaac will be joining the team in the newly created roles of COO and Vice President.
McIsaac, set to begin on Oct. 3, will have overall responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the company’s sales, field service/solutions, category management, procurement, pricing and supply chain businesses in the United States and Canada.
McIsaac will join MSC following a nine-year tenure with Hilti Corporation, a multinational company that develops, manufactures and markets hardware, software and services for multiple industries. Most recently, she served as Region Head and CEO of Hilti, Inc., leading the North America organization to significantly outperform the market with strong top-line and profit growth.
Before Hilti, she spent 14 years at Avery Dennison.
With McIsaac moving into the COO role, Doug Jones, Executive Vice President and Chief Supply Chain Officer, will begin transitioning his areas of responsibility to McIsaac as part of his planned transition to retirement following a career with MSC spanning more than two decades. Jones will remain in his full-time role until early 2023, at which time he will move into a part-time advisory role overseeing the completion of several key supply chain initiatives.
