TD SYNNEX appoints new Chief Operating Officer

TD SYNNEX announced that Patrick Zammit has been named Chief Operating Officer, reporting to company CEO Rich Hume effective 1st January.

In this new role, Patrick will coordinate the company’s business strategy to drive profitable growth across all technologies, geographies, and vendors, and to accelerate the adoption of new, high-growth technologies around the globe. Patrick has served at TD SYNNEX as President, Europe, since 2017, adding executive responsibility for Asia Pacific and Japan in 2021. A new leader for TD SYNNEX’s business in Europe will be announced in the coming weeks.

Rich Hume, CEO said, “Patrick is an outstanding business leader. He has consistently empowered his team to innovate and transform our go-to-market business model by harnessing the power of data and digital, setting a new standard in our market for personalised, targeted customer engagement and operational excellence. His model of servant leadership has allowed for the incubation of new ideas not only to grow business for TD SYNNEX and our partners but also to ensure that we are responsible corporate citizens committed to making our planet a better place for our co-workers and our communities.”

With this organisational structure change, regional presidents in the Americas, Asia Pacific Japan (APJ), and Europe will now report to Patrick, along with the corporate functions responsible for global strategy and information technology. Additionally, Michael Urban, President, Americas, has decided to leave the company and has offered to support Patrick with this transition through 1st March.

Rich added, “We thank Michael for playing a key role in bringing together TD SYNNEX over the past two years. He and his team delivered a very successful merger. He also drove our business growth and strategy in the Americas, outpacing the market and establishing TD SYNNEX as a leader in the region. We wish him well in his future endeavors. As we continue to evolve and grow TD SYNNEX to meet the increasing needs and demands of the ever-changing IT landscape, our growth-oriented business strategy and focus on providing the best possible experience for our partners and vendors remain unchanged.”

Patrick has been with the organisation since 2017, leading the European region after Tech Data acquired Avnet Technology Solutions, and taking over responsibilities for the APJ region in 2021. Before joining Tech Data, Patrick served in a variety of management roles at Avnet, beginning in 1993. During his tenure at Avnet, he served as Global President, serving on its executive board, and earlier as President, EMEA Marketing, among other roles. Before joining Avnet, Patrick was a Senior Consultant at Arthur Andersen from 1989 to 1993. He holds the French equivalent of a master’s degree in business administration from ESLSCA Business School and is fluent in English, French, and German.
