NESCO Electrical Distributors - Executive Leadership


In 1965, Clarence E. Lomenick founded Nesco Electrical Distributors in Tupelo, MS, and began his career in the electrical business. That same year, his son, C.E. (Eddie) Lomenick, Jr. joined his father in building what would become the benchmark electrical supply company in North Mississippi. The Lomenick family started a tradition of service and integrity that remains the dominant hallmark of Nesco today.

Working together proved to be a great partnership for the Lomenicks; even Clarence's wife, Urcle, became an integral part of the company as manager of the lighting showroom. With growth came expansion in the region. Amory, Starkville, Columbus and Corinth branches were added to the Tupelo operation. Eddie succeeded his father as head of Nesco in 1985.

In 2005, Nesco was sold to Corinth natives Bob Gatlin and John Stanley. Mr. Gatlin and Mr. Stanley both value their deep Mississippi roots and reside in Tupelo and Corinth, respectively. It was their commitment to these homegrown tie that bonded them to Nesco's founding family, and continues to drive them in their daily and long-term goals for the company.

Shortly after, the Lighting Gallery was renovated, with an expanded inventory, followed by a new facility for our Starkville location in 2012. The sales staff alone of Nesco Electrical Distributors and Lighting Gallery averages 18 years per person in the electrical industry, with a combined total of over 500 years of service to their customers. Experience is valued at Nesco.
