Changes to put more emphasis on growing cloud and lifecycle services group
In the new year, Ingram Micro’s management team will look much the same. However, the roles and responsibilities of the executive members will change dramatically as the distributor focuses more on driving the growth of its cloud and lifecycle services while maintaining its legacy business units.
The Lowdown: Beginning in January, CEO Alain Monie will shift more of his attention to the company’s Cloud and Commerce & Lifecycle Services (CLS) businesses. He plans to work more closely with Ingram Micro Cloud President Nimesh Dave and CLS President Ken Beyer on expanding the size and profitability of the two ventures.
Monie’s shifting focus will bring Ingram veteran leader Paul Bay into a greater role overseeing Global Technology Solutions, the largest business group in the distributor’s portfolio, which generates more than $45 billion in annual revenue.
The Details: Bay will continue to report to Monie, who retains overall management and control of Ingram’s various regional and global business units.
Under the new leadership structure, Bay’s direct reports are Mark Snider, the executive vice president and group president of Ingram EMEA, and Diego Utge, executive vice president and group president of Asia Pacific. Bay will continue to oversee the Americas operations.
The company also announced the promotion to senior vice president of country leaders: Bill Brandel in Canada, Alex Maier in Germany, and Matt Sanderson in the U.K. and Ireland.
The Buzz: “Nimesh and Ken have each done a fantastic job building thriving businesses that are helping power the growth of many of the world’s leading companies and emerging brands,” said Monie. “Our Cloud and CLS businesses are already experiencing strong revenue and profitability growth, and we have the opportunity to accelerate our performance even more. I plan to spend significant additional time with the teams to further speed execution on our objectives, including increased investment to capture the tremendous market opportunities before us.”
“The globalization of the IT market presents an incredible opportunity for Ingram Micro to play to our strengths and accelerate our leadership position as the IT channel’s top-performing global business partner,” said Bay. “This is an excellent opportunity to further broaden my leadership and industry experience, particularly on the international front, and I look forward to working with our country leaders. Together we’ll continue to build on our role as an indispensable business partner to the IT channel, a channel that’s critical to delivering quality technology outcomes, and one essential for end businesses to succeed in the digital economy.”
