Ingram Micro Brands the Power of Trust X Alliance to Businesses Worldwide

New Community Branding and Website Simplify the Search for the World's Leading IT Service Professionals; Adds Healthcare and Public Sector Specializations #ONEIngram

NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - Nov 18, 2015) - Ingram Micro ONE -- Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) is pleased to announce the Trust X Alliance, the IT industry's premier community for top-performing solutions providers. Previously recognized as the VentureTech Network (VTN), which started in 1998, the Trust X Alliance's collective resources and expertise deliver a level of IT services and solutions companies won't find anywhere else. With more than 10 million customers served and supported, the Trust X Alliance is renowned for helping organizations of all sizes to rise above IT challenges and build better businesses.

In support of the new branding, Ingram Micro launched a new website, www.trustxalliance.com. The site is designed to provide businesses around the globe with a closer look at the exclusive vetting process for membership into the Trust X Alliance, as well as the extensive reach, range of expertise and collective experience that members offer to their local communities and worldwide. Additionally, the community's new signature emblem, which was previewed earlier this year at Ingram Micro's Spring ONE event and is now featured on members' websites, business cards and collateral, makes it easier for channel partners to market and differentiate their premier status, and for businesses to identify Trust X Alliance members.

"The Trust X Alliance represents hundreds of the world's most talented, skilled and business-minded IT service providers who are individually strong and collectively extraordinary," said Paul Bay, executive vice president and chief executive, Ingram Micro U.S. and Export. "It's an honor to build the Trust X Alliance brand and make it easier for businesses worldwide to partner with an IT service provider they can trust to help realize the promise of technology and exceed their goals."

Trust X Alliance Expands IT Solutions Expertise in Health Care and Public Sector
Starting in 2016, the Trust X Alliance will focus on building vertical market expertise within the community and welcome select members of the Ingram Micro Public Sector Elite and Healthcare Elite. These highly specialized communities will enable a stronger vertical markets focus within Trust X Alliance and build on the founding principles and best practices of the community.

"Healthcare and Public Sector are two markets regulated by strict compliance and industry mandates that require the use of targeted technology solutions and services that must be deployed by technology and business experts," said Kirk Robinson, senior vice president, Ingram Micro. "Our Healthcare and Public Sector communities represent the industry's best education, government and healthcare-focused IT professionals. We're excited to have them join ranks with our Trust X Alliance members and accelerate the adoption of technology worldwide."
