Rexel Energy Solutions President and General Manager, Scott Munro, to Retire; Christopher Monoson named as Successor
Scott Munro began his career 40 years ago at Munro Distributing, and the company grew rapidly under the leadership of Scott and his 3 brothers, leading to the sale to Rexel Holdings in 2012. Since the acquisition, Rexel Energy Solutions has expanded across the US, generating significant revenue growth.
“We appreciate the accomplishments of Scott and the Munro family, and we value Scott’s guidance and contribution in the transition of Munro Distributing to the RES team we know today,” said Brian McNally, Executive Vice President and CEO of Rexel North America. “Rexel Energy Solutions is positioned for significant growth this coming year and we’re confident that Christopher will lead our niche Energy Efficiency business unit in exceeding their goals in 2018 and beyond.”
"I am grateful to have spent nearly 40 years with this team and deeply honored to have had the opportunity to lead the team as Rexel Energy Solutions for the last five,” said Munro. “I am very proud of what my Rexel Energy Solutions colleagues across the country have accomplished together. The leadership team and I have laid out a vision for the company that will guide Rexel Energy Solutions for many years to come, and this gives me great confidence about the future success of the team. Chris has been preparing for his new role as my successor for several years, and 2018 is the right time for him to assume his place as the leader of the company."
“This is an exciting time at Rexel and I am honored to take on this role with Rexel Energy Solutions,” said Christopher Monoson. “From the dedication to our customers, to how quickly they adapt to succeed in the face of a new challenge, I am consistently impressed with the energy and caliber of our team. We will continue to grow and strengthen our national footprint while maintaining our position as a top-tier energy efficiency provider, dedicated to bringing best-in-class expertise and service to our clients.”
Monoson becomes the President and General Manager after serving as VP of Finance for RES, as well as the acquisition integration lead after the sale of Munro Distributing to Rexel Holdings in 2012. Since joining Rexel in 2001, Chris has held various leadership positions within Gexpro, Parts Super Center, Gexpro Services, and Munro/Rexel Energy Solutions. Chris holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from Siena College in upstate New York.
Concurrently, Rexel Energy Solutions announces Marco Colangelo as their new CFO, replacing Monoson.

A graduate of General Electric’s Finance Management Program, Marco has previously served as division finance manager for Rexel Northeast and as the Gexpro supply chain finance manager. He also spent several years at United Technologies (Sikorsky) in the Military Programs Division working with the Financial Planning & Analysis group before his return to Rexel USA in 2012.
