He will lead a recently expanded sales team of more than 450 serving the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Chile.

“Mike has a extensive track record of success and growth in B2B sales,” said Ken Bradley, Interim President of Allied. “From world-class relationship management to connecting with new customers and markets, we are excited for the innovation and expertise he is bringing to the Allied leadership team.”

“I often hear from customers in the industrial, automation, electronics and MRO spaces about how they are looking for a one-stop digital shop,” said Walker. “I’m very excited lead the sales team for a company that is committed to offering expertise, advice, service, tools, extensive product information, robust inventory and timely delivery—all in one integrated experience.”

Walker is the most recent new addition to the Allied leadership team, as the company continues its efforts to transform the research and buying experience for customers.
