Ingram Micro has announced a series of growth investments spanning the Asia Pacific region as part of its global Advanced Solutions Strategy.
The cloud and supply chain solution provider punctuated its commitment to the region by expanding its Singapore-based value-added solutions approach.
The Vice President of Global Partner Engagement and IoT at Ingram Micro, Sabine Howest, said: “The markets across Asia Pacific continue to be a growing opportunity for Ingram Micro and our channel partners.”
The investments will expand Ingram Micro’s presence in Asia Pacific and provide the technology sales channel with better support and more sophisticated solutions development.
The team will focus on a new level of service around cybersecurity, hybrid technologies, cloud solutions as well as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things.
“Building on our longstanding presence in Asia Pacific, Ingram Micro is now further differentiated by our Advanced Solutions go-to-market sales, technical and vendor management,” said Ingram Micro’s ASEAN Vice President and Country Chief Executive, Francis Choo.
The rapid expansion of their Advanced Solutions technology and value-added services portfolio across Asia Pacific will include the formation of a Center of Excellence, which will support channel partners doing business or looking to expand their expertise in cybersecurity, data center and IoT solutions.
Mr. Choo said: “The investments we’re making are impactful and will help our channel partners simplify the complexity of IT and deliver an exceptional service experience to their customers.”
Mr. Choo will expand his role to lead the expansion of the Advanced Solutions and Global Partner Engagement team, while continuing to oversee the leaders who run Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.
“We will continue to invest in and expand our capabilities across all of the countries where we do business in Asia Pacific,” said Diego Utge, Group President for Asia Pacific at Ingram Micro.
The growth investments by Ingram Micro come at a time when countries across Asia Pacific, including Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam are looking to digitally transform businesses and societies through IT spend increases and digitalisation strategies.
