Arrow Names Americas President

Englewood, Colorado-based electronics distributor Arrow said this week that it has named Jeffrey Eastman as President of Americas Components at the company. Eastman replaces Vinnie Vellucci, who the firm said is retiring. Vellucci apparently spent nearly 44 years with Arrow. Eastman is a relative short timer compared with Vellucci, only having spent 29 years at the company. Eastman has been at Arrow since 1983, most recently serving as Senior Vice President of Global Supplier Marketing and Asset Management. Arrow is a major supplier of electronic components, computer products, and services to the electronics industry.
