Ingram Micro President Leaves For Industrial CEO Job

Monie joined Ingram Micro in 2003 as executive vice president and was named president of Asia-Pacific operations a year later. He was promoted to president and COO in August 2007.

"Alain is an outstanding and worldly leader, providing a valuable combination of strong business and technical knowledge along with a first-hand global perspective," said Greg Spierkel, CEO of Ingram Micro, in a statement.

As president of Asia-Pacific, Monie helped double the business in that region, thanks in large part to an acquisition of Tech Pacific, and helped improve profitability in the region, according to Spierkel.

“Since his promotion to corporate chief operating officer, he has been a driving force behind operational improvements that will benefit our company for many years to come. He is a detailed executive with the strategic insight to move an organization forward. I'm confident that he will be an excellent chief executive,” Spierkel said in the statement.

According to the company, Monie’s responsibilities will be absorbed by four regional presidents and a logistics executive, who will now report to Spierkel.

Prior to joining Ingram Micro, Monie was president of the Latin American division of Honeywell International and led the Asia-Pacific operations of Allied Signal Inc.

“I'm proud of the company's achievements throughout the world, from building an unparalleled presence in emerging markets to taking innovative steps into logistics, cloud services and data capture,” Monie said in a statement. “I was presented, however, with an ideal professional opportunity that I could not ignore. I'm pleased to leave the company in a position of strength, as it benefits from the many improvements we've made over the last two years.”
