Welcome to the Ingram Micro Blog, a place where you can read about Information Technology (IT) industry impressions, trends, commentary and, of course, all things Ingram Micro. However, this is not a one-way street. We want this to be a place to share thoughts and ideas, so please comment, post and provide your unique perspective.
This is a milestone year for us, as 2011 marks the 15th anniversary of Ingram Micro’s Initial Public Offering (IPO). It’s also my 14th year with this great organization and during this time, I’ve seen a lot of changes in our industry. One thing, however, remains constant and that’s our dedication to you, our vendor and reseller partners. We are here to provide the innovative tools, resources, advice and service you need to be successful.
In just 15 years, Ingram Micro has grown from being “the best way to get IT from the people who make it to the people who use it,” to a company that delivers so much more. We’re the valued, strategic bridge that brings vendors and resellers together through a diversified mix of solutions — from financing and credit, market reach and demand generation, as well as new offerings such as Data Capture/Point-of-Sale, Mobility and Cloud.
As we commemorate the 15th anniversary of our IPO by ringing the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange on November 15, we invite you to join us and celebrate our successes together. It’s because of you we’ve been in the business since 1979, and we’re just getting started. We’re committed to keep coming up with ways to help you grow and prosper.
It’s been a wonderful journey so far and I’m grateful to have you along as a partner. I look forward to our future together.
If you’d like to share some of your thoughts, experiences and memories about Ingram Micro over the past 15 years (or more), I encourage you to leave a comment. We’d love to hear from you.
