David Nord — chairman, president and CEO at Hubbell of Shelton, Connecticut — recently became the elected chairman of the board of governors for the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA).
NEMA President and CEO Kevin Cosgriff expressed confidence in the appointment, stating that he believes the association “will thrive under Dave's guidance as we enter a new era of electrification" and citing Nord’s experience and perspective. Nord conveyed assurance that NEMA can bring constructive change to global business including supply chain function and policy.
"Our industry's future is bright," Nord said. "By working together, we will make the third century of electrification every bit as exciting and rewarding as the previous two."
Nord earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Hartford. Previously he served as vice president and controller for United Technologies for close to 10 years; as vice president of finance for Hamilton Sundstrand; and as senior vice president and chief financial officer at Hubbell for the past dozen years.
The NEMA board elected three individuals to join Nord in the 2018 slate of officers: first vice chairman Mark Gliebe of Regal Beloit; treasurer Theodore Crandall of Rockwell Automation; and immediate past-chair Michael Pessina of Lutron Electronics; and nine additional members were selected to serve three-year board terms.
Hubbell manufactures electrical and electronic products for the residential, commercial, industrial and utility sectors.
