June 26, 2012 | By HPAC Magazine

Michael Storfer resigned from his position as president of Noble effective June 22, 2012. He has been with Noble since its start up in 1993 when it was known as Noble Plumbing Supply. In 1997, Noble Plumbing Supply and Trade Plumbing Supply merged to form Noble Trade – a venture driven by Storfer and Brahm Swirsky. Since then, it has grown to more than 50 branches,with locations in Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia. Noble Trade was acquired in 2007 by Rona and rebranded as Noble in 2010. Swirsky is leaving his position as Noble’s vice president procurement in December of this year. Following Storfer’s resignation, Noble announced that Jim Anderson, formerly vice president of sales at Noble, became the company’s general manager effective June 25, 2012. He will continue to lead sales until a replacement is named. Anderson joined Noble in 2004 and has been actively involved in driving the company’s sales efforts, national branch expansion and in helping to build the strategic plan. “Jim is a trusted advisor and good friend. He is eminently qualified, and brings a breadth of experience gained over the last 20 years,” stated Storfer. “His results-oriented approach and ability to think strategically will play a pivotal role in guiding Noble through its next stage of growth.”
