Ingram Micro Australia Managing Director Matt Sanderson is vacating the top job Down Under, after being promoted to the role of Chief Country Executive UK and Ireland.

After successful turning around the Australian business, Sanderson will commence his new role on July 1, with Felix Wong, Ingram Micro Chief Country Executive A/NZ, now heading all four business units of the distributor across the trans-Tasman, which includes core distribution, Cloud, commerce and fulfilment and lifecycle services.

"I am immensely proud of what our team has achieved over the last few years in bringing the business back to a healthy state, gaining a market leading position and successfully delivering against the goals we set," Sanderson said.

"The determination, focus and execution of every team member has been outstanding, and it’s their success and hard work that has now given us a great platform for continued future growth."

Sanderson’s role in reviving Ingram Micro’s fortunes in Australia will not go unnoticed, having surpassed $2 billion revenue in 2015, up from a low of $1.2 billion in 2012 following the company’s much criticised SAP troubles.

Having previously held Director roles at Ingram Micro during an initial five-year stint, Sanderson left the Australian business to return to the UK in 2009, taking up the Managing Director role.

A return Down Under in January 2013 soon followed however, with Sanderson tasked with turning around the fortunes of an organisation crippled by previous SAP failings.

"I want to thank every team member as well as all our vendor and customer partners, as without their constant and unwavering support we would not be where we are today, and for which I will be forever grateful," he added.

"I am sure Felix and the team will take the business onto new heights, gaining synergies from the exciting new business units we have integrated over the last couple of years, complementing our core technology business."

Wong has held a number of senior executive roles at Ingram Micro, and formerly BrightPoint, including Managing Director BrightPoint Australia, Senior Vice President BrightPoint Singapore and President of Ingram Micro Mobility APAC.

Going forward, Sanderson said Wong will continue to lead the business, looking to further strengthen Ingram Micro's position in each segment by leveraging further synergies across business units and channels.

"I am looking forward to working closely with our customer and vendor partners in both Australia and New Zealand," Wong added.

"By leveraging our products and services across all Ingram business units, I believe Ingram can offer even more value for our partners."
