Ingram Micro (UK) has announced that from 1st July, Matt Sanderson, Vice President and Managing Director, Ingram Micro Australia, will be returning to the UK to become Country Chief Executive at Ingram Micro UK & Ireland.
Matt has held various roles during his career at Ingram Micro, across the business at both local country and regional level in EMEA and APAC.
After successfully leading Ingram Micro UK & Ireland to three years of sustained growth between 2010-2013, Matt took up the role of VP and Managing Director Australia. Under his recent tenure, he has led the successful turnaround of the Australian arm of the business, with the distributor taking a market leading position under his leadership.
The announcement comes as current UK & Ireland Chief Country Executive, Brent McCarty, returns to the US to lead Ingram’s global sales initiative. For 40 months, Brent has successfully led a unified strategy across all four business units in a complex market and, most recently, closed the acquisition of Comms-care, an important differentiator for Ingram Micro’s long-term growth initiatives in the UK.
Gerhard Schulz Executive Vice President & Global Group President said, “we congratulate both Matt and Brent in their new roles and look forward to the continued development of Ingram Micro UK under Matt’s leadership. We cannot thank Brent enough for his commitment and believe his prior experience has fully prepared him to head up our global sales initiative.”
