Brent McCarty will return to US to lead distributor’s global sales efforts, with Sanderson taking over in July
Ingram Micro ANZ managing director Matt Sanderson will head up its UK division from July, as current UK and Ireland chief Brent McCarty transitions into a global sales role.
Sanderson was MD at Ingram Micro UK from 2009 until 2012, when he became vice president and MD in Australia and New Zealand, based in Sydney. He has held numerous roles at the distributor after joining in 1995.
He will take over the reins from McCarty, who has been in charge since January 2013, in July. During his time overseeing the UK division of the disti, McCarty has integrated the mobility division in to the wider company, closing its Verwood office (formerly Brightpoint).
He also oversaw several acquisitions, including the recently announced takeover of Comms-care.
EVP and global group president Gerhard Schulz said: “We congratulate both Matt and Brent in their new roles and look forward to the continued development of Ingram Micro UK under Matt’s leadership.
“We cannot thank Brent enough for his commitment and believe his prior experience has fully prepared him to head up our global sales initiative”.
