Smith Names Juline Longo Vice President of Enterprise Programs

Juline will spearhead customer-driven programs and deliver cutting-edge solutions to Smith’s global customers

Houston, TX (February 27, 2024) – Smith, a leading global distributor of electronic components and semiconductors, today announces the appointment of Juline Longo to the position of Vice President of Enterprise Programs. In this role, Juline will oversee the company’s large-scale vendor-managed inventory (VMI) programs and engineer comprehensive solutions to support the company’s worldwide partnerships.

“Juline has been one of my most trusted confidants over his 30-year career at Smith, and his ability to contrive strategic and innovative solutions makes him the ideal person for this position,” said Marc Barnhill, Chief Executive Officer. “His involvement with our commodity and VMI business has been a real catalyst in helping Smith become what it is today, and his modest beginnings in the company have paved the way for a remarkable success story of diligence and hard work. I look forward to seeing how he further develops our company’s collective infrastructure.”

Juline joined Smith in a data-entry position in 1993. He later moved into Purchasing before being named Purchasing Manager, followed by CPU Commodities Manager. He was promoted to his most recent role, Director of Commodity Program Services, in 2021, where he managed cross-departmental collaboration and trading functions. His decades of industry expertise and meticulous attention to detail will help Smith’s enterprise customers increase profitability by mitigating bottleneck issues and ensuring uninterrupted production.

“When I started at Smith, my job consisted of data entry with just three computers on site,” said Juline. “Our company has progressed significantly since then, and my goal is to continue to provide our customers with a structure that facilitates their inventory management and maximizes their efficiency so they can rest assured they’re receiving an accurate account of their available catalog.”
