Zoro.com, a fast-growing, online-only unit of W.W. Grainger Inc. that supplies equipment and tools to small businesses throughout the United States, has named Sandy Mattinson as its new president, Zoro said today.
Mattinson, who currently serves as chief revenue officer, will take over as president on April 1, succeeding Kevin Weadick, who has served as president since 2017.
“Sandy is a consummate leader who both inspires and challenges her teams in new and creative ways all with the goal of doing good for our team members, customers and communities,” D.G. Macpherson, chairman and CEO of Grainger, said in announcing Mattinson’s appointment. “Sandy’s strategic vision, thought leadership, innovative bent and authenticity helped drive the company’s success over the past four years, and as president she will continue to strengthen the Zoro brand and deliver value for our customers and suppliers.”
Mattinson joined Zoro in 2019 as its first female vice president and has taken on roles of increasing responsibility across the company, including serving as the chief merchandising officer. In that role, the company says Mattinson provided “strategic and operational leadership across Zoro’s business development, category management, product information, pricing, and digital merchandising teams.” In addition, she was “instrumental in Zoro expanding its assortment to 11 million products and achieving $1 billion in annual revenue in 2022.”
“I’m honored and energized by the opportunity to lead the Zoro team,” Mattinson said, adding: “We are passionate about delivering a differentiated experience for our business customers, and thanks to the great talent at Zoro, I believe the best is yet to come.”
Mattinson will participate in a “fireside chat” keynote presentation about Zoro’s growth strategy at the EnvisionB2B 2023 Conference & Exhibition in Chicago in June.
