Spierkel stands down as Ingram Micro CEO

by Stuart Wilson, Friday 20 January 2012

Global distribution giant Ingram Micro has announced that Greg Spierkel has stood down as CEO of the company. Alain Monie has been named the new CEO of Ingram Micro effective as of today and will also retain his current title of company president. Spierkel will remain at the company until April 15th 2012 to assist with the management transition.

Spierkel commented: "I’m confident the company is in capable and experienced hands. After serving as CEO for more than six years, it’s the right time to leave and spend more time with my family." Spierkel joined Ingram Micro in 1997, serving as president of the Asia-Pacific and EMEA regions before his promotions to corporate president in March 2004 and CEO in June 2005.

Dale Laurance, chairman of the board, added: "Greg has ably steered the company through periods of both growth and challenge, and the board thanks him for his dedicated service. We are confident that Alain is uniquely positioned to guide the company. He is an outstanding and worldly leader, fluent in three languages with first-hand global business experience. He has proven to be a strong executive with good strategic thinking."

Monie commented: "Ingram Micro has a solid strategy with a strong management team," said Monie. "We will continue to execute this strategy. I look forward to leading the team toward delivering on our key initiatives, while providing best-in-class performance for our customers, vendors and shareholders."

Monie, 61, was previously COO at the distribution giant. He joined Ingram Micro as executive VP in January 2003 and was appointed president of the Asia-Pacific region a year later. He was promoted to president and cOO of the corporation in August 2007 and resigned three years later to become chief executive officer of APRIL Management, a multi-national industrial company based in Asia.

On November 1st, 2011, Monie returned to Ingram Micro in his current role, re-assuming his prior responsibilities. Before Ingram Micro, Monie was the head of Latin American operations at Honeywell International and Asia-Pacific operations at Allied Signal, where he led the company’s expansion into China and India. Monie has been a member of the board of directors of Amazon.com since November 2008, and was recently elected to the board of Ingram Micro in November 2011.
