Princeps appoints David Nash as Sales Director to spearhead expansion as demand for fully-traceable EEE components surges

August 2022, Harlow, UK: Princeps, the accredited specialist distributor of obsolete & difficult-to-source electronic, electrical & e-mech components for advanced industries, has appointed David Nash as Sales Director. Nash will spearhead the company’s sales growth as demand surges across its whole customer base in the aerospace, defence, medical, energy, oil & gas, and transportation sectors.  Against continued shortages of electronic, e-mech and electrical components, Princeps specialises in supplying hard-to-source, fully-traceable, guaranteed parts and takes full responsibility for counterfeit mitigation.  

Nash has a 23-year background in the electronics industry, having worked for two independent distributors in the sector and most recently for franchised distributor Powell, where he successfully drove sales of its EMech commodity ranges throughout the EMEA market.   

Nash comments: “Princeps’ reputation and commitment to growth, aligned with its ethos of unparalleled customer service, were the driving factors behind my decision to join the company. I am looking forward to opening up additional revenue streams by bringing in new manufacturers and forging new distribution agreements which will strengthen and diversify our line card.  Our market presence and profile will be heightened over the coming months, principally by capitalizing on our capabilities across all sectors, with a special focus on helping mil aero customers by utilizing our Assure and Assure + service.”

Dan Hughes, Managing Director, Princeps, stated: “David brings with him tremendous industry expertise and proven ability to solve supply issues for customers across multiple industries with his in-depth knowledge of the global supply chain.  He will make a valuable contribution to the company’s growth as we embark on an ambitious 5-year growth programme, starting with our imminent re-location to larger premises, which maximises our in-house AS6081-qualified counterfeit avoidance capabilities.”
