Santa Ana, Calif.
– Former Ingram Micro president and COO Alain Monie will return to that post,
effective Nov. 1.
Monie left the global IT distributor in 2010
after three years in that role for the CEO spot at April Management, a
multi-national industrial company based in Asia.
He will now be
responsible for each of Ingram Micro’s operating units and will oversee four
regional presidents and a global logistics executive VP. He reports directly to
CEO Gregory Spierkel.
“I’m pleased to
welcome Alain back to Ingram Micro,” Spierkel said. “He is an outstanding and worldly leader,
fluent in three languages with first-hand business experience in many corners
of the globe … He has proven to be a
strong executive partner, with good strategic thinking and excellent attention
to detail. I look forward to working
with him again.”
Ingram Micro as executive VP in January 2003 and was appointed president of the
Asia-Pacific region in 2004, where he played a critical role in the development
of that business, which included the acquisition of Tech Pacific. He was
promoted to president and COO in 2007, succeeding Kevin Murai, and led
operational improvements that enhanced performance throughout the organization,
“It’s a great time
to return to Ingram Micro because of the multiple opportunities that are within
the company’s reach,” Monie said. “The
company’s improvements in systems infrastructure, coupled with its investments
in business-model expansions, will drive greater operating performance, provide
better and more comprehensive service for our customers and partners, and truly
leverage our global footprint. I look
forward to re-establishing my connections with the company’s resellers,
vendors, talented management team and associates.”
