Legrand, a global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures, has announced several strategic leadership updates within its Electrical Wiring Systems (EWS) division of Legrand, North and Central America (LNCA). Effective immediately, these updates include the creation of a new senior leadership role within the EWS
sales organization, as well as several moves at the leadership level for the business’ four product lines (Cablofil, Connectrac, Pass & Seymour, Wiremold). With the broader intention of building significantly upon the business’s notable growth in recent years, the updates aim to leverage the skills and expertise of existing EWS leaders by repositioning them in new or expanded roles.

“We find ourselves in a very fortunate position,” explained Ravi Ramanathan, President of the Electrical Wiring Systems division. “Due to the health of our business and the extensive talent found within our teams, we can be truly proactive in our pursuit of continuous growth and market leadership. In asking ourselves how we could ensure momentum for years to come, we identified exciting opportunities to foster growth – as well as enhance support for our customers – simply by utilizing the depth of knowledge and expertise we have within our teams in new ways.”

One new way is the transition of Scott Bausch to the freshly created role of Senior Vice President, Strategic Accounts and Revenue Operations. For the past three years, Bausch has been serving as Vice President and General Manager of the Pass & Seymour line, overseeing significant growth within Legrand’s wiring device business as well as helping to revitalize its innovation pipeline.

John Hoffman, Executive Vice President of Sales and Demand Creation for EWS, is delighted to now be bringing Bausch back to the sales side of the division. “In his 20 years with Legrand, not only has Scott led three of our four EWS product lines, but he has also held past positions in sales leadership, in marketing and more. This has equipped Scott with a unique and invaluable history with our products and brands. Not to mention a plethora of long-standing relationships with our customers. Scott is the absolute ideal candidate for this new role – nobody could know our businesses, our markets or our partners within the Electrical Distribution channel better.”

As Senior Vice President of Strategic Accounts and Revenue Operations, Bausch will provide deeply focused support for Legrand’s most active distribution partners. He will also collaborate heavily across functions within EWS to ensure the customer base has the optimal offering, resources and programs to go to market, and succeed, in the evolving electrical device and systems industry.

In conjunction with Scott Bausch’s move, Pung Chan will now be taking on leadership of Pass & Seymour as the line’s new Vice President and General Manager (VP/GM). Chan has been leading the Wiremold line for Legrand since 2021, and quickly took on oversight of the Connectrac line as well. During this tenure she has overseen sales growth and retention of industry leadership in key categories, as well as significant collaboration between the lines to promote total solutions for wire and cable management in commercial spaces. She will now be building on these successes and applying her 20 years of overall experience to drive additional growth and innovation at Pass & Seymour, serving both commercial and residential sectors.

Additionally, Zac Bridgeman, current Vice President and General Manager (VP/GM) for Legrand’s Cablofil line, will now have oversight of the Wiremold and Connectrac product lines as well. Since joining Legrand in 2017, Bridgeman has guided the Cablofil team to unprecedented growth and established Legrand as a leading supplier of overhead systems, driving continuous improvements for reliability, productivity and performance, particularly in service to the still expanding data center market.

Also, as rapid growth in that market continues, Kevin Major will be stepping up to support Bridgeman as General Manager (GM) for the Cablofil line. Major has been Legrand’s resident expert and sales lead for Data Centers in supporting the electrical distribution channel. Major will pull from this relevant background, as well as the strategy development and innovation deployment experience gained through his 16 years with Legrand, as he takes on his first GM role within the organization.

“These moves provide multi-faceted opportunity,” Ramanathan adds. “Strategically setting ourselves up for continued growth extends opportunities for success to our partners and customers as well. And doing this by offering our own team members new avenues from which to excel is a point of pride. As individual leaders, as a profitable organization, as a trusted partner and supplier — we're going to keep getting better."
