“I’m honored to serve as the 2017 NAILBA chairman,” Sorebo said. “It is my strongly held belief that NAILBA will continue to be the voice of distribution in our industry more so than ever before and deliver on our members’ needs as the industry continues to change and reinvent itself. I embrace the efforts we are making to re-focus our future strategic direction and look forward to the work ahead.”
