Anixter recently attended the PSEG-Long Island Diversity Fair held on May 3rd at the Marriott Hotel in Uniondale, NY. Diverse suppliers from all over New York and New Jersey were there to network and promote their companies along with PSEG supply chain, procurement, capital projects and Senior Leadership.

The event was a huge success with over 150 participants engaging in B2B conversations with the ultimate goal of assisting PSEG-LI to meet their diversity spend requirements. Anixter has been a significant supplier to PSEG-LI and with great pride I am happy to announce that Anixter was awarded the 2018 Prime Supplier Diversity Utilization Award!

Accepting the award from Brian Clark, VP Procurement at PSEG and Barbara Brudie, Director of Diversity Programs at PSEG was Don DeFosse, RVP- Cory Andrews, Account Manager and Jason DeSouza, VP Diversity for Anixter. This is a very special award for Anixter as it promotes the fact that a large corporation can work with its diverse partners providing direction, inclusion, profitability and local support while serving the needs of PSEG-LI.

Thank you to PSEG-LI, our diverse supplier partners and our Anixter team: Cory Andrews, Lisa Neff, Ken Weidner and Cindy Leng.
