Legrand North and Central America, a manufacturer of electrical and digital building infrastructures, made Brian DiBella president of data power and control (DPC); while Ravi Ramanathan has been promoted to president of electrical wiring systems (EWS), both effective Jan. 3, 2022.

Since 2014, DiBella has been the president for EWS, Legrand’s largest division. He is known throughout the organization as a team builder and collaborative leader.

DiBella has been a valued member of the West Hartford, Conn.-based Legrand North America team for nearly two decades. He began his career with Legrand as the chief information officer in 2004 before moving into the role of vice president and general manager of wiremold in 2007.

“It’s been an honor working for Legrand over the past eighteen years and being a part of the growth and evolution of the company” said DiBella. “I look forward to working with my colleagues in the data power and control division and being a part of this fast-growing business. While I will miss my team at EWS, I trust that Ravi will do a great job in leading them towards growth and continued success,” said DiBella.

In 2019, Ramanathan led and integrated Starline, which Legrand acquired in that same year. Ravi’s aptitude for leadership was evident through his time with Starline, almost doubling its revenue over the last two years.

Ramanathan has worked with DiBella since 2014, when he joined as the vice president and general manager of the wire and cable management business for EWS.

“There is no denying the invaluable lessons I have learned by working with Brian for the last seven years,” said Ramanathan.

“Legrand’s innovative mindset and commitment to our customers are values that each of our team members live by. I’m excited to lead this talented team to further success and join the esteemed Legrand leadership team. I’m grateful to continue to be a part of the company’s growth,” said Ramanathan.
