Ingram Micro, Inc. has announced the impending departure of its executive vice president and chief information officer, Mario Leone. Although replacement has not yet been identified, the Santa Ana, California-based distributor also announced that Nimesh Dave, the company's executive vice president of global business process and cloud computing, will immediately assume Leone's role, including oversight of the company's worldwide information and business systems.
"We thank Mario for his hard work at Ingram Micro over the past four years, during which substantial changes to the company's information systems have been launched," said Bill Humes, the company's chief operating and financial officer, in a prepared statement. "We wish Mario the best in his next endeavor."
The announcement marks a continuation of a number of executive changes at Ingram Micro. On Tuesday, the company announced the promotion of longtime distribution veteran Kirk Robinson to senior vice president, commercial markets and global accounts for North America, providing Robinson with a stronger role in the management of global accounts.
Earlier this month, the company also appointed new management to its U.K. and Ireland operations, naming Brent McCarty as executive managing director. The move establishes a replacement for Matt Sanderson, who now leads the company's Australian operations.
In addition, Tom Bamrick has been appointed to lead the Ingram Micro consumer electronics division, and Bashar Nejdawi has been named president of Ingram Micro North America Mobility.
Leone will remain at Ingram Micro through March 1, 2013, to assist in the orderly transition of his duties.
