Ingram Micro has announced that it is strengthening and investing in its regional go-to-market team and capabilities in EMEA. In line with this strategic move, a number of changes have been made to Ingram Micro’s EMEA vendor engagement team and the EMEA leadership team.
Jacek Murawski has been appointed to the new role of Vice President, EMEA vendor engagement and joins the EMEA leadership team. Jacek most recently served as General Manager and VP EMEA for Odin Automation, a cloud provisioning management technology platform acquired by Ingram Micro in December 2015, and brings experience from both the distributor and vendor side to his new role.
Günter Schiessl, who until recently led volume vendor management for Ingram Micro Germany, is also taking on a new role with the company. Günter, who will report to Jacek, is tasked with the new role of leading Ingram Micro’s volume vendor engagement team in EMEA. Jordi Muñoz will also now report to Jacek in his new position leading Ingram Micro’s value vendor engagement team in EMEA; he formerly served as the value business lead for Ingram Micro Spain.
Sabine Howest, Ingram Micro Vice President Global Vendor Engagement said, “each of these individuals is well-respected in our industry, having distinguished themselves as experts in their fields. We are extremely pleased to be strengthening and investing in our regional go-to-market team and capabilities in EMEA. In 2017, you will see Ingram Micro put our vendors’ and resellers’ needs at our core as we aggressively grow our market relevance. These changes reflect Ingram Micro’s commitment to play an ever-increasing leadership role in the EMEA market.”
Alongside the new changes, Tasneem Baldiwala, formerly Vendor Engagement Lead for EMEA, will move to a new role leading strategic planning and execution for the region, reporting to Ingram Micro Executive Vice President and president EMEA, Mark Snider, and remaining a member of the EMEA leadership team. Mark Chlebek, who formerly led the value vendor engagement team, has been promoted to Executive Director, EMEA development and also joins the EMEA leadership team. In their new roles, they will harness their experience and knowledge from working with vendor partners, further strengthening Ingram Micro’s leadership team in EMEA.
