Marc Barnhill

Chief Executive Officer


Marc has found that a major driving force behind Smith’s innovation and growth has been the continuous reinvestment in our people, processes, and infrastructure.

“As a leader in semiconductor distribution, we don’t make the products we deliver,” said Marc. “Rather, our customers come to us for our industry expertise, certified processes, and global reach, and these investments ensure that Smith is providing the best and most up-to-date market knowledge, inspection and testing services, and supply chain solutions to position our customers for success.”

Serving as Smith’s first-ever Chief Executive Officer, Marc oversees all of Smith’s day-to-day business operations and direction to facilitate the expansion of our resources, capabilities, and footprint worldwide.

“Since 1984, Smith has grown, adapted, and innovated to support our customers and bridge the gaps within the global semiconductor supply chain, and we will continue to develop comprehensive solutions to the industry’s biggest challenges,” said Marc. “My job as CEO is to serve as a resource allocator for Smith. I give maximum support and tools to our management team, and, in turn, to every employee so they can achieve their highest potential here.”

Marc began his career at Smith in 1990 as a purchasing agent and was one of only twelve employees. He was promoted to President of Broker Sales two years later and then Vice President of Trading in 1996. He served as Chief Trading Officer for sixteen years before being named CEO in 2023.

During his tenure, Marc has helped paved the way for many of Smith’s successes over the years. When he was first named Chief Trading Officer in 2007, Smith reported $300 million in annual revenue and had eight locations worldwide. Today, we are located in more than 20 cities across four continents and have achieved more than $1 billion in annual revenue every year since 2017.

“Smith’s journey from a small family business to a global powerhouse has taken decades of effort and ingenuity, but I firmly believe that the best is yet to come,” said Marc. “There are still countless untapped partnerships, solutions, and opportunities in front of us, and we will continue to develop the knowledge and resources needed to reach Smith’s next milestone. The investments we are making today will pay dividends toward our successes tomorrow, and I look forward to leading those efforts as we march ahead into the next wave of semiconductor distribution.”

Outside of Smith, Marc enjoys spending time with his wife and children and cheering on the South Carolina Gamecocks.
