Steed has been with Ingram Micro since 2019 as vice president of sales and operations and has held sales roles before at Tech Data and Avnet Technology Solutions. As vice president of sales, Advanced Solutions, he will focus on the expansion and growth of current and new partners and vendors.
Karim played a pivotal role in evolving Ingram Micro Canada’s business and services and is the executive lead of Xvantage for Canada. Ingram Micro, based in Irvine, Calif., just launched its Xvantage platform that helps partners streamline billing and order tracking with the distributor.
Karim has been with Ingram Micro for 22 years and has held many roles such as vice president of vendor management and director of purchasing and vendor management. He will take over Ingram Micro’s vendor technology solutions, marketing and partner planning.
“Understanding the importance of digitally transforming our business, Anthony has led our digital journey with Xvantage, and will continue to do so, owning the cross-functional team and strategy,” said Brandel in a statement.
Coughlan has more than 25 years of experience at Ingram Micro’s U.S. Technology Solutions team and has worked in many roles within sales and support, technical support and licensing and customer care for the U.S. business.
“Tyler has been a trailblazer leading many initiatives and projects that have received many accolades and truly transformed Ingram Micro’s business,” said Brandel.
Earlier this week, Ingram Micro said that it has submitted a filing to go public.
The company in a press statement said Ingram Micro Holding Corp. has confidentially submitted a draft registration statement to go public through a Form S-1 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
