WASHINGTON, DC – The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW), the
voice of the $8.2 trillion wholesale distribution industry that employs over 6 million U.S.

speakers for the upcoming NAW Innovators Summit, powered by Applico. The Summit will take
place November 14-16, 2023 in Austin Texas.
NAW strives to enlighten and empower distributors to stay at the forefront of industry
progress. We are pleased to announce that Kathy Mazzarella, Chairman, President and CEO of
Graybar, will be a part of our CEO panel. Mazzarella, a well-known industry leader, will share
the insight and wisdom she’s gained after more than 43 years at Graybar.
Mazzarella participated in the Innovators Summit last year, and said this about it: “In
2022, I was honored to be part of the inaugural Innovators Summit presented by NAW and
Applico. As Chairman, President, and CEO of Graybar, I understand firsthand the challenges
facing our industry, and also the opportunities for distributors that innovate with technology to
help their companies, their customers and their employees achieve more. This year’s event will
build on last year’s foundation and provide new insights on how B2B companies are using these
technologies to drive growth, productivity and profitability.”
