Joseph F. Kovar, C.J. Fairfield
‘I’m honored to be CEO of such a phenomenal team and build further on our strategic imperatives to transform and modernize the way we do business, remove complexity for our partners, and be an indispensable business behind the many brands we serve,’ Bay says.
4. No Stranger To The CEO Role
Ingram Micro is not the first company to have Bay as its CEO. Bay was CEO of Punch Software for just over four years. He left Punch in the spring of 2010 to return to Ingram Micro.
Punch Software was a home design software company. The company’s assets were purchased just before Bay rejoined Ingram Micro by Encore Software, a wholly owned subsidiary of Navarre Corp. Navarre was later acquired by Wynit Distribution, which later retired the brand. Punch Software still develops home design software.
While at Punch Software, Bay led the company in the acquisition of CadSoft Solutions, a developer of CAD applications for Windows and Macintosh platforms.
