Mike Maggio, President

TriMega Purchasing Association


Mike Maggio has over 38 years' experience working in every channel of the Business Products Industry. Mike started in 1978 working with his family, an Independent Dealer in Southern NJ, rising to General Manager before moving on to wholesaler SP Richards Co. At SP Richards for over 14 years, Mike steadily advanced into more senior roles with his final position as Division Vice President for the Northeast Region. As Division Vice President Mike oversaw the sales and operations of 9 Distribution Centers from Maine to Virginia, servicing hundreds of Independent Dealers. Next stop for Mike was as CEO of Regional Wholesaler ActionEmco. After presiding over the sale of ActionEmco to SP Richards and United, Mike worked with midwest manufacturer group Dekko as Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Dekko's primary business was manufacturing wiring harnesses for contract furniture manufacturers and counted Herman Miller, Steelcase and Knoll among their many customers in the space. From Dekko, Mike came back to his roots working as a General Manager for the largest Independent Dealer in the Mid Atlantic, The Supply Room Companies. At Supply Room for a little under two years, Mike worked with the Jones family helping them assimilate two large acquisitions in the Baltimore market. Mike now brings all of the experience and knowledge he has gained working with Independent Dealers, Manufacturers and Wholesalers to his role as President of TriMega Purchasing Association.
