Ingram Micro Shuffles Executive Management Team


Ingram Micro has announced changes in three key management positions, impacting its consumer electronics business, mobility division, and United Kingdom and Ireland leadership.

Brent McCarty, who has led the distributor's consumer electronics business, formerly DBL Distributing, since 2009 becomes executive managing director of Ingram Micro U.K. and Ireland, a position recently vacated by Matt Sanderson who now returns to Australia to lead company operations there. McCarty will report to Johan Vandenbussche, regional vice president, U.K., Belgium and Netherlands with Ingram Micro EMEA.

The consumer electronics division will now be led by Tom Bamrick, who had served as executive director of Global Sales and East Campus, a position that focused on U.S.-based revenue generation and partner development. Bamrick joined Ingram Micro in 1994, and he has held several key enterprise and commercial sales management and business development roles. In his new role, he will report to senior vice president Brian Wiser.

"Both Brent and Tom have proven track records of delivering admirable results through unwavering partner commitment and a focus on operational excellence," said Paul Bay, president, Ingram Micro North America, in a prepared statement. "They are seasoned and respected industry leaders, and we are confident they will deliver new growth and opportunity for our business. I will work closely with them over the first quarter of 2013 to ensure an appropriate and seamless transition for our customers, vendors and associates."

The Santa Ana, Calif.-based distributor also announced that Bashar Nejdawi, the company's senior vice president of corporate strategic initiatives and partnerships for Ingram Micro Mobility, has been promoted to president of Ingram Micro North America Mobility, reporting to Senior Executive Vice President Shailendra Gupta.

Nejdawi replaces Mark Howell, who is leaving the company later this month to pursue other interests.

"Bashar has worked extensively with the North America region and brings to his new role an ideal mix of experience in mobile distribution and manufacturing, as well as mobility services," said Gupta in a prepared statement. "This is a highly important region for Ingram Micro and we're confident in his ability to build on Mark's good work and drive additional profitable growth throughout the region."

Nejdawi's previous experience includes roles as president of the mobile enhancement business at BrightPoint, where he later became global executive and head of European Sales and Procurement before moving on to the role he now vacates. He spent the previous 17 years with Motorola.
