McCarthyEarth City, Mo.—E.J. Welch Company, the industry’s fourth-largest distributor, has named Kavita McCarthy as its new president. According to E.J. Welch Company, McCarthy brings more than two decades of building materials experience to her new role, most prominently within flooring, holding progressive roles at CCA Global Partners and ProSource Wholesale.

McCarthy joined E.J. Welch in 2020 as vice president of marketing. Since that time, the company said she has redefined the brand, its competitive product positioning and developed a strategic plan across customer service, pricing, procurement, marketing and sales enablement. 

“E.J. Welch is redefining the installer, independent retailer and commercial contractor experience,” McCarthy said. “I couldn’t be more excited to lead the charge as we evolve our infrastructure and elevate our go-to-market strategy.” 

In recent years, E.J. Welch has been in growth mode through acquisition. In 2020, the company said it purchased the assets of Gilford-Johnson and acquired a controlling interest in T&L Distributing. McCarthy said she plans to reinvest profits to create additional incentives and retain and attract top talent across the company’s 40-plus locations.
