President's Corner
A Message From Dr. Teresa Garate

“Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.”

- Bob Dylan

I am happy to announce that I have completed my first year as Anixter's President and CEO and continue to marvel at the wondrous impact we have every day in the lives of so many people. I would like to use this issue of our newsletter to tell you a little bit about what we have been up to ensure that Anixter Center continues to grow and soar all throughout Chicagoland and beyond.
