Leading wire and cable supplier Genuine Cable Group (GCG) has named Marc Abbagnaro its Chief Commercial Officer. Abbagnaro will lead the commercial efforts across all GCG targeted business segments, including the Telecom/Broadband, Factory Automation, Marine, Building Automation, Assembly and Infrastructure segments. 
Marc spent the last 10 years in sales leadership roles with Anixter International. Those positions included regional sales management roles within the U.S. and global sales positions covering the Americas and China. Marc’s most recent position was Senior VP of Sales for Anixter’s Electrical and Electronic Solutions division. 
“Marc is an extremely important addition to our leadership team,” said Steve Maucieri, CEO of GCG. “He has spent his career building solid relationships and is well respected by both key suppliers and customers. That skill is exactly what we need as we expand GCG’s reach while remaining a customer-centric, responsive and values-focused organization.” 
In 2019 GCG was purchased by Audax Group, a private-equity firm that recognized the strong marketplace demand for the wire, cable and related products supplied by the targeted GCG business segments. Since the purchase Audax has invested heavily to improve GCG’s ability to meet the needs of its customers. 
“GCG has a really strong team that understands well what it takes to continually exceed our customers’ expectations,” said Marc. “I am excited to work with Steve and the rest of the leadership team to continue our investment in all of the GCG segments to enhance their abilities to provide ever more value.”
