Ingram Micro’s Kirk Robinson On Tech Data-Synnex Merger: ‘Game On’

‘We think we’re well-positioned. And we’re going to continue to deliver in the second half of the year. The pipeline that we’re hearing from our partners, even though there’s a global supply chain issue, there’s still so much opportunity,’ Kirk Robinson, Ingram Micro’s chief country executive for the U.S., tells CRN.

Any new programs planned by Ingram Micro for the second half of 2021 because of the investment by Platinum?

We’re always looking at talking with our partners to understand their needs and then bringing in and developing new programs to support them. So there’s always going to be new programs. I’m not quite sure if any are tied to our now being owned by Platinum. This is what we’re always doing. We‘re always reaching out to our partners, listening to what their needs are, and then investing in those areas.

We look at Platinum as pouring fuel in the Ingram engine to let us go and drive more value to our partners.

What are some new programs that Ingram Micro is looking at for the second half of 2021?

I would say it falls into areas I talked about before: How do we continue to look at how to support our partners in the advanced solutions area, all the needs around data center, security, public sector, federal. It’s really just diving in deeper and looking at where we’re going to make investments, acquisitions, joint ventures, partnerships, to make sure that we can be there for our partners and help them grow profitably.
