Ingram Micro Australia vice-president and managing director, Guy Freeland, will leave his post at the end of the year.
As previously reported by ARN, the distributor on Thursday confirmed his replacement is New Zealand managing director, Jay Miley.
Freeland stepped in as Ingram’s local CEO in September 2005 after a five-year stint as CFO of Tech Pacific’s Asia-Pacific operations. He took over the top job after the departure of Kerry Baillie, who became Ingram’s CEO following its acquisition of Tech Pacific in 2004.
Miley took over as Ingram’s New Zealand managing director in January 2007. Originally from California, he joined the distributor in 2000 and was US vice-president of vendor management for just over two years before relocating to New Zealand.
In a statement, Freeland said he had thoroughly enjoyed his time with Tech Pacific and Ingram Micro.
"I’ve been involved in extensive mergers and acquisitions and financing activity and worked within a great regional team to grow Ingram Micro’s business to a position of clear industry leadership," he said in the statement. “I will miss my current local team the most. They are a talented and committed group of people who work tirelessly to promote the success of our customer and vendor partners. I am happy to leave Ingram Micro Australia in such good shape.”
Freeland said he would take some time off before taking his next step.
