Vince DeLuca is the new CEO for Logicalis U.S., set to take over the solution provider giant's U.S. business in July, according to Logicalis. DeLuca replaces Terry Flood, who is leaving the company following a 10-year run.
DeLuca joined Logicalis as chief operating officer in 2010, following a stint as senior vice president, Infrastructure Practice Service Delivery and Client Engagement, at Wipro. Earlier in his career, he held executive positions at Infocrossing, which was acquired by Wipro, and also at SMS and Marconi.
Flood will stay on with Logicalis to assist with the transition, according to the company, which announced the succession this week. Among many accolades during his time at Logicalis, Flood was named Executive of the Year in CRN's VAR 500 awards for 2011.
"On behalf of the Logicalis Group board, I would like to thank Terry for his valuable contribution in the 10 years he has been with the company," Ian Cook, CEO of Logicalis Group, said in a statement. "It is on Terry's foundation of success that we now look forward to Vince taking up the mantle to continue driving the company forward into its next phase of growth."
Logicalis Group, a $1.2 billion solution provider whose U.S. business is based in Farmington Hills, Mich., is itself a division of Datatec Limited. The company ranked No. 28 on this year's CRN Solution Provider 500 list, formerly known as the VAR 500.
Logicalis said it will continue to prioritize communications, services and infrastructure under DeLuca.
"Looking forward, we will continue to help our clients take full advantage of technology to support their business growth, communication and efficiencies," DeLuca said in the statement. “Our key partners will of course continue to be central to our growth as well as the expansion of our service offerings in the cloud, managed services, and unified communications and collaboration arenas.”
