Ingram Micro Gets A Rock Star Platinum Lead Partner

Platinum Equity Partner Jacob Kotzubei, a “rock star” tech investor who has helped drive transformations at a number of high-profile channel companies, is the driving force behind the Ingram Micro deal.

Kotzubei’s participation in the Ingram Micro deal signals good things ahead for Ingram Micro, said Wolf.

“Jacob Kotzubei, the lead on this deal, has probably created more value than any non-founder in the last 20 years in the channel,” said Wolf. “When you look up ‘rock star’ in the dictionary you see his photo. He follows through on his commitments and makes things happen.”

Among the deals that Kotzubei has driven in the channel include Data Blue, Compucom Systems, Pomeroy and Canvas Systems, which was represented in the Platinum Equity deal by martinwolf M&A Advisors.

“We know Ingram Micro and the industry very well and have been investors in the technology and IT distribution and solutions sectors for more than a decade,“ said Kotzubei in a prepared statement. ”We have been pursuing this opportunity for a while and have been impressed by the company‘s ability to thrive while continuing to navigate these fluid and challenging times. We will work closely with the Ingram Micro leadership team to sustain that momentum and build on the company’s success.”
