Who We Are

D&H Canada is a leading technology distributor of IT and electronics offering end-to-end solutions for today's reseller and retailer and the clients they serve across the SMB and Consumer markets.

Every customer, regardless of size, is given their own dedicated account representative who functions as your personal, knowledgeable industry consultant, working more like a partner participating in your ongoing strategy than like a salesperson.

    • Izzy Schwab

      CEO

      Like D&H Distributing itself (which started as "Economy Tire and Rubber"), CEO Izzy Schwab went through many transformations over a 50-year career that eventually took the organization national. Izzy took his first sales position at D&H, the company his father founded back in 1918, in the late 1950s.

      Over the years, Izzy helped evolve D&H beyond electronics and appliances, to include merchandise such as records and tapes, Whirlpool appliances, housewares, security equipment and TV parts. In 1981, he was named Vice President of Sales for Pennsylvania. Diversification into computer products helped strengthen the company through the shrinking margins of the '80s. He was named president of D&H in 1989 and became CEO in 1999.

      Izzy has a business degree from Penn State University and is a military veteran.
