…who has a passion for turning ideas into the next big thing.

What started out as tinkering around with prototypes of electronic circuits as a kid has turned into building solutions that help Graybar teams work smarter and serve customers better.

His youthful interest in electronics led him to a degree in electronic and communications engineering, followed by a job in the oil and petrochemical industry near his hometown in India. It was there that he discovered his true passion – data analytics.

Always looking to further his knowledge, Anish enrolled in a master’s program in data science and machine learning at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana.

It was at a career fair there that Anish first discovered Graybar’s Innovation Lab. This unique program provides students with the opportunity to gain professional experience in wholesale distribution while also applying their knowledge and insight to shape the future of the company.

Since joining the Innovation Lab, first as an intern and now as an Advanced Analytics Developer, Anish has leveraged his knowledge of data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning to help power a new era of distribution.

“Graybar’s Innovation Lab goes beyond traditional research and development,” Anish said. “We work with teammates across the company to develop solutions to challenges our customers face every day. At the same time, we are creating new technologies and innovations that drive long-term business value. It’s exciting when your work makes a lasting impact on others.”
