San Diego – David Wax, Executive Vice President of WAXIE Sanitary Supply, has been elected by the Board of Directors as the Chairman of NETWORK® for a two-year term.
David has held numerous positions within NETWORK over the past 25 years, including Vice Chairman, and has been active in various committees. Mr. Wax will lead the NETWORK Board of Directors and the NETWORK membership, aligning with strategic suppliers and key customers globally.
David started his full-time career with WAXIE in 1977, progressing in roles through customer service, purchasing, sales, and sales management.

He moved back to San Diego in 1994 to oversee marketing and then later took on the leadership role for the company’s corporate accounts initiative. In 2012 David became the Executive Vice President of WAXIE’s California branches.
