(WCMA) announced at its annual meeting changes to its Board of Directors and Officers, making the upcoming April 7th, 2018 WCMA Distinguished Career Award a significant event for our organization. The TE Wire & Cable team would like to congratulate our very own Robert Canny on becoming President of the WCMA.

With his retirement, Joe concludes a distinguished 37 year career in the wire and cable industry that includes 22 years with Harbour Industries, 25 of which were as part of The Marmon Group.
