Rhett Pierce has joined the HOLT family! Rhett will be the District Manager of our Southeast Missouri HOLT branch, located in Cape Girardeau, MO. Rhett brings a wealth of knowledge and industry experience to the new role, which will add enormous value to our customers and ensure they are provided with the best possible service. He will also be spearheading potential growth opportunities for the Southeast Missouri region, expanding HOLT capabilities to reach those communities.
Rhett is originally from Cape Girardeau. His career in the electrical industry began in 1985 when he was a sophomore at Cape Central High School, working summers for Cape Electrical Supply. Rhett continued to work in the warehouse throughout high school and college and grew a personal connection with the leadership team. He graduated from Southeast Missouri State University with a bachelor’s in Business Administration. Since that time, Rhett has worked over 15 years independently and directly representing manufacturers like Thomas & Betts, Southwire, Panduit, Hubbell/Raco, Hoffman, and more.
While working in Dallas, Texas, Rhett grew valuable relationships with vendors. He was a key partner on many high-profile electrical projects, including the new Dallas Cowboy Stadium, JP Morgan Chase headquarters, Texas A&M’s new football stadium, Microsoft Data Center San Antonio, and many more. Rhett’s relationship with HOLT began a few years ago. He immediately connected with the team and is “very excited to be working with a leadership team that I have known for several years now!” Rhett exclaimed.
Rhett is most excited about being back in his hometown, where he can bring new growth opportunities to his community, “My father worked in the industry in the Southwest Missouri region for 35 years, and I am honored to be able to bring our family name back home.” His experience, paired with his bond to the people and community of Cape Girardeau, makes him a perfect fit to grow the HOLT name in Southeast Missouri.
Ryan Holtzman had this to say about their most recent hire, “We are excited to add Rhett into the Southeastern Missouri region. Rhett brings a tremendous amount of industry expertise and a history of service excellence that bolds well with the foundation HOLT was built upon. Rhett’s energy is unmatched. We continue to invest in the district and see substantial growth ahead.”
