Jon-Don named Jay Davisson as its new chief executive officer and Steve Porter as chief sales officer. The updates to the leadership team reflect the company’s continued growth trajectory as it expands to serve contractors across a variety of industries.
Davisson brings senior-level executive and private equity experience. Most recently, he was CEO at Ames Taping Tools. Davisson previously held several progressive leadership roles at Sherwin-Williams.
“I am very excited to join the team and continue to build upon Jon-Don’s solid foundation of providing world class service to thousands of specialty contractors nationwide,” Davisson said.
Porter brings nearly 30 years of sales experience. He most recently served as chief operating officer of Ruprecht/Kilcoy Global Foods. Prior to that, Porter spent nearly 25 years at Grainger, leading the company’s largest sales team in the U.S. in his final role.
“I look forward to working with Jay and Steve,” said Matt Tharp, chief financial officer for Jon-Don. “I am confident their leadership and expertise will be invaluable as we continue to evolve to meet the needs of our customers, vendors, and employees.”
