Ingram Micro CEO Alain Monie Named a 2013 Top 100 Executive by CRN

Distribution Leader Recognized as One of the Top 25 Most Influential Executives

SANTA ANA, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 15, 2013) - Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM), today announced that its CEO Alain Monie was named one of CRN's Top 100 Executives for 2013. The annual list salutes the most influential, innovative and game-changing channel executives in North America.

Monie was also recognized as one of the Top 25 Most Influential Executives in 2013 by CRN, which honors an elite group of channel evangelists who direct and develop ground-breaking channel strategies. The back-to-back accolades mark the second consecutive year Monie has been featured on both lists.

Reflecting on Monie's career as Ingram Micro's CEO, CRN credits him with making his mark early-on and driving the world's leading technology distributor toward the cloud and capitalizing on the rising trend for mobility and mobile lifecycle services. Under his leadership, Ingram Micro has made a number of strategic acquisitions including BrightPoint, Promark, Aptec and most recently SoftCom and Cloud Blue, not to mention the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire Shipwire. The distributor has also established a competitive portfolio of advanced technologies and solutions, expanded its supply-chain services capabilities and developed differentiated services around cloud and high performance computing, all of which have helped drive year-over-year double-digit revenue growth.

"It's an honor to be recognized as a voice of influence within today's IT channel and share in the growing success of Ingram Micro," says Monie. "Being the best solutions provider to our channel partners isn't just a goal -- it's become a way of doing business for Ingram Micro. We take great pride in what we do and why we do it, and will continue to invest in the experts, technologies, capabilities, markets and solutions that will ensure our channel partners remain at the top of their game."

The Top 100 Executives list is based on ongoing feedback throughout the year from solution providers, with rankings based on channel influence, effectiveness and visibility, along with business and sales impact. Final selections were made by a panel of CRN editors. Among the criteria considered were channel sales volume, channel investment and resources, channel advocacy and visibility and performance in The Channel Company research projects including the Annual Report Card and Channel Champions.

"Each individual featured on CRN's Top 100 Executives list has shown an unwavering commitment to the IT channel and serves as an example to the industry at large of how to be a successful leader, innovator and influencer," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company.
