About Lindsley Ruth
Lindsley Ruth was appointed CEO of FTSE 250 Group, Electrocomponents plc (ECM) in April 2015 to head up a programme of cultural and operational change. Under his leadership, the organisation structure has moved from global to regional. Customers and suppliers have been put back at the heart of the business and digital business transformation has been accelerated. Financial performance and efficiency have improved, and there have been two acquisitions in the current financial year. Electrocomponents is now a Group of eight brands. A more aspirational culture is emerging with a greater focus on innovation, sustainability and social responsibility.
