Ingram Micro has expanded its leadership team in New Zealand, through the appointment of Adam Peden as general manager of retail sales.

Forming a key part of Ingram Micro’s strategy to further grow its presence across the country, Peden takes up the role just weeks before Showcase 2016, the distributor’s flagship technology event in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

“Adam has been a top performer within the Ingram Micro business, with his most recent accomplishment being the development and management of our successful Lifecycle Services Division,” Ingram Micro New Zealand managing director, Gary Bigwood, said.

“This change to GM, Retail Sales, actually sees Adam return to his roots. When Adam was at Brightpoint (an Ingram Micro owned company), he was a senior retail account manager, recognised (and awarded) for his expertise by New Zealand retailers.

“We are delighted that Adam will now be bringing his proven methods to our wider retail sales team.”

Peden’s new role will include the responsibility of managing the Ingram Micro retail sales team, working with key partners to help them grow businesses via the extensive portfolio that now surpasses over 200 vendors.

At present there are seven specialist retail sales staff, who work alongside the 30 members of the broader volume and consumer product teams.

“I’m delighted to be back in this sector, working with retailers to deliver the solutions and service they require,” Peden added.

“Ingram has a fabulous range of vendors and services, along with a great team to support the requirements of the retail channel – it’s exciting to be a part of this.”

According to Bigwood, Peden’s appointment will also support opportunities in other parts of the Ingram Micro business.

“Adam’s appointment will provide Kelly Eyerman, General Manager Consumer and Apple business, with the opportunity and bandwidth to spend more time developing the vendor side of our consumer business, which continues to deliver exciting growth opportunities,” he explained.

“There are a plethora of interesting and exciting products that are launching in the months ahead and we look forward to Adam and Kelly’s teams bringing these to the New Zealand market.”
