Belgium: broadliner Ingram Micro has appointed Christophe Defrance as its new managing director. He replaces Sophie Deleval who has gone back to France some weeks ago to take the reins of the local office. Christophe recently joined Ingram Micro Belux as Sales Director, after an extensive experience in the Channel, working for several ICT companies and in his last role he spent 6 years successfully introducing and building the channel for Dell. Last January Christophe was recognized by the industry for his constant belief in and contribution to the channel by being elected Belgium Channel Personality of the Year.
Gerhard Schulz leaves broadliner Ingram Micro for personal reasons after more than 15 years at the firm. He was promoted in 2013 to his present role as executive vice president and president of Europe Technology Solutions, replacing retiring Alain Macquet. Prior to this he spent a number of years leading the broadliner's distribution business across the DACHH region, encompassing operations in Austria, Germany, Hungary and Switzerland. Before that he was managing director of Ingram's business in his native Germany, and also held other senior sales posts in the country. He joined Ingram having previously served as director of rival Tech Data's European business, and worked for vendor Intel earlier in his career. Schulz led a restructure of Ingram's EMEA operations over the past two years, in which each country now has a dedicated chief executive overseeing a national business that is split into four clearly defined areas: traditional product distribution; cloud services; life cycle services; and e-commerce fulfilment. As part of the overhaul the distributor also closed its previous regional headquarters in Brussels, and opened a new centralised service centre in the Bulgarian capital Sofia, in which 800 people are employed. The departing European boss also oversaw a busy period of M&A in the region, including the acquisition of the e-commerce services business of Dutch firm Docdata, and the Odin cloud platform, bought from Parallels. The new EMEA director is now Marc Snider, the former director of Ingram Micro in Canada. He will be based in the Irvine CA offices of the broadliner (source: Channelnomics Europe).
Broadliner Ingram Micro has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire privately-held, San Jose, CA-based Ensim Corporation, a company specialized in enabling the distribution of cloud applications. The transaction is subject to the approval of Ensim shareholders and other customary closing conditions. Alain Monié, Ingram Micro CEO, commented "This acquisition is an excellent complement to Ingram Micro and we look forward to Ensim joining our team." David Wippich, Ensim CEO, said "This is a superb next step for Ensim and we expect to leverage the financial strength, brand recognition and global infrastructure of Ingram Micro to further speed the growth of our business. Our customers and employees will benefit from this union and we are excited to partner with Ingram Micro."
A shareholder of broadliner Ingram Micro is hoping to stop the distributor's impending sale to Chinese conglomerate Tianjin Tianhai and has filed a lawsuit claiming that the US firm sold itself "too cheaply and via an unfair process". An unspecified stockholder has filed a lawsuit on behalf of all those who own shares in the broadliner. The plaintiff alleges that Ingram and its leadership have "breached their fiduciary duties" to those who hold stock in the New York-listed distribution firm. The alleged wrongdoing relates to Ingram's acquisition by Tianjin Tianhai, which was announced last month and is currently going through the approval process. The lawsuit – the ultimate goal of which is to "halt the proposed takeover" – claims that the €5.3b sale price "is grossly inadequate and undervalues Ingram Micro". Furthermore, the plaintiff believes the deal came to pass "via an unfair process". The all-cash agreement equates to a €35-per-share sale price, and a press release announcing the lawsuit claims that, on Monday, Ingram shares closed trading at €32.7. The release also points out that the distributor's sales have grown strongly in recent years, from €32.76b in 2011 to almost €41.94bn for the 53-week period to 3 January 2015 (source: Channelnomics Europe).
Broadliner Ingram Micro has enhanced its Cisco XCHANGE program for reseller partners in EMEA region. The enhanced XCHANGE program offers greater discounts across all Cisco architectures, comprising routing, switching, wireless, security, collaboration and data center. The streamlined process does not require deal registration or approval.
Working with Ingram Micro, resellers are able to deliver life cycle solutions and capture incremental business as they refresh existing customer product with Cisco-certified solutions through the XCHANGE program.
XCHANGE supports the environment and contributes to the circular economy by rewarding, with discounts, the removal and destruction of old products from Cisco and other selected networking vendors in an environmentally-friendly way and in line with local requirements.
XCHANGE is specifically for partners who are looking to do deals between €4,500 – 22,500. Generating the promotion code and applying the discount to the order is extremely easy and quick to do using the specially-developed and intuitive program tool.
Mark Chlebek, Senior Director - Advanced Solutions EMEA, Ingram Micro added "We had a very positive experience with the launch of the first version of this program in Europe. We believe this is a truly attractive and beneficial program for our reseller partners. The program enables resellers to be more competitive in the market and to be more profitable when selling Cisco."
