Distribution: Alive And Well In A Sea Of Change

Consolidation, top executive changes, and competition with the cloud are all leaving their marks on IT distribution in 2018.

One major constant, however, is Alain Monie, who since 2012 has served as CEO of Ingram Micro, the IT industry's largest distributor. Monie has steered Ingram Micro during a time of growth that included the company's acquisition of over 20 distribution and services companies worldwide.

Monie in 2016 led Ingram Micro through its own acquisition by China-based HNA Group's Tianjin Tianhai Investment. That move, which made Ingram Micro a private company, provided it the flexibility to re-organize for growth away from the scrutiny of Wall Street, Monie told CRN.
