Sep 19, 2005
HAWTHORNE, CA – September 19th, 2005 – Symmetry Electronics, a leader in design-oriented electronics distribution, today announced the appointment of Ray Woo as President. Ray Woo’s appointment as President is part of a series of exciting changes aimed at helping Symmetry grow, expand and position itself as a force in the electronics industry. Ray Woo is a electronics industry veteran whose 27-year career includes 13 years at Western Micro and 13 years at Memec Group. While at Memec, he was the co-founder and driving force behind Unique and Insight, two of the most successful design-oriented, limited line distributors in the industry. “As a result of the mergers and acquisitions that have taken place in our industry over the last few years, the choices for small and medium sized suppliers has dwindled,” says Gil Zaharoni, CEO of Symmetry Electronics. “We are bringing Ray on board to help us meet the needs of those suppliers and at the same time, build an organization to handle the many opportunities that are on the horizon.” “I’m impressed with Symmetry’s model of catering to specific needs of customers and vendors with their classic demand creation sales efforts as well as leading edge e-commerce alternatives,” says Ray Woo. “My role is to fulfill the potential that has already begun here at Symmetry while creating a team-oriented and focused distributor poised for rapid growth.” About Symmetry Electronics Founded in 1998, Symmetry Electronics is a global supplier-authorized electronics distributor, providing value-added distribution of technology products, solutions and services to industrial and commercial markets.
