Nancy Collat GoedeckeMayer Electric Supply Company
Starting in high school. Nancy C. Goedecke began working at her family’s company, Mayer Electric Supply Company, Inc., eventually taking over as CEO after earning her college degree and working outside the company for two years. Goedecke grew Mayer, founded in 1930 by her grandparents, by expanding to more than 50 locations in 10 states with over a billion in annual gross revenues. Goedecke and her family have always believed standing still is never an option and in order to remain successful one must keep looking ahead for ways to grow. Goedecke looks to keep growing annual revenues from $1 billion to $2 billion. Goedecke’s goal is for Mayer to be the no brainer when it comes to distributing electrical products and equipment, and be the initial option for all – including not only its customers but also employees and the communities in which it operates.
