SIKESTON - Glen Parks is the new manager of Sikeston Electrical Supply and Jim Porter will lead their outside sales efforts in the Bootheel area.

Parks brings 20 years of electrical experience to his new leadership position. Starting his career at Chambers Electric, Parks has since gained an extensive background in electrical supplies and equipment. He will continue to work closely with all his local customers and have responsibility for the Sikeston store.

Also a 20-year-veteran of the electrical business, Porter has been a key member of the Sikeston Electric sales team for 17 years. In his new role, Porter will be responsible for calling on area contractors and industrial accounts.

Sikeston Electric is a branch of Cape Electrical Supply Co., based in Cape Girardeau. The company operates 19 full-service locations in a four-state region.

One of the "Top 100" electric distributors in the country, Cape Electric has been in business for the past 52 years. The company believes in "building a great local presence backed by the strength of regional distribution," said Parks.
