Who will lead the new Ingram Micro?

WHO will be left standing to head a new and larger Ingram Micro, incorporating Tech Pacific in New Zealand?

Channel sources suggest that fierce competition over the years will make working together under one roof a hard task for current Ingram Micro managing director John Dunbar and Tech Pacific boss Tony Butler, who have each run their respective firms for many years.

An informal poll conducted by Reseller News on the basis of anon-ymity has sources picking Butler as the most likely candidate, as he has a good track record in running a larger organisation.

He will also be familiar to the greater number of staff in a combined operation — an important factor when joining two previously competing businesses, sources say.

On the other hand, Butler is a Tech Pacific shareholder and some believe he may cash-up and step out of a management role — perhaps to become chairman of the company or even to exit the industry altogether.

John Dunbar, meanwhile, knows the Ingram Micro systems that are likely to be put into place across the new organisation.

And early indications are that Ingram Micro may be looking after its own as company president Greg Spierkel announced on Monday that Ingram Micro Asia president Alain Monie will continue to lead the region, although regional Tech Pacific heads CEO Shailendra Gupta and CFO Guy Freeland will be retained.
