Schaedler Yesco names new president
Swatara Township-based Schaedler Yesco Distribution Inc., a distributor of electrical, datacomm and industrial supplies, has named a new leader.
The Dauphin County company on Wednesday said Farrah Mittel has been appointed president of the company, effective Jan. 1. She replaces Matt Brnik, president since 2004, who will now serve as executive vice president of sales on the executive management team.
Mittel, who has been with the company for more than 12 years, most recently served as regional vice president of the company's east region. She has been part of the executive management team for several years.
"Farrah's business acumen and her keen eye for strategic growth are assets to us," CEO Jim Schaedler said in a statement.
Indeed, Schaedler Yesco has experienced significant growth over the last 15 years, officials said. The company has 21 locations across the state and has expanded its services to include energy-focused lighting and controls design, industrial automation products and data communications systems.
The company posted $169.6 million in revenue in 2017, the latest data available. The company cracked $100 million in revenue in 2010 and sales have continued to grow nearly every year, making Schaedler Yesco one of the largest private companies in Central Pennsylvania.
