SANTA ANA, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 23, 2012) - Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) today announced four members of its executive leadership team have been recognized by CRN Magazine as "Top Women of the Channel." The Ingram Micro executives honored include:
- Jennifer Anaya, vice president, Marketing, North America
- Renee Bergeron, vice president, Managed Services and Cloud Computing, North America
- Holly Garcia, executive director, Commercial Markets, U.S.
- Jodi Honore, executive director, Software, Vendor Management, U.S.
In addition, Ingram Micro's Anaya and Bergeron have been named to CRN's 2012 "Power 100" Women of the Channel list, which recognizes the top 100 most influential female executives who have made a name for themselves as driving forces in their respective companies and in the industry as a whole.
The Power 100 honor is a first for Anaya, who re-joined Ingram Micro in April 2012 to head the distributor's North America marketing services team, and marks the second year in row for Bergeron, who is credited with establishing Ingram Micro as the industry's master aggregator of cloud services and solutions.
This is the fourth consecutive year that Honore, who was named one of CRN's Power 100 in 2011, has been recognized for her leadership and career accomplishments by CRN, and the third year for Garcia, who now leads Ingram Micro's strategic VAR partner accounts in the U.S.
"The leadership of all four of these Ingram Micro executives not only strengthens the value and services we deliver to our channel partners, but also stands to inspire up-and-coming executives and future generations of women who are looking for a rewarding career in business technology," says Keith Bradley, senior executive vice president and president, Ingram Micro North America. "We're very proud to see the dedication and IT industry contributions of these four executives honored by CRN."
This year's Top Women of the Channel and Power 100 Women of the Channel honorees were selected by the editors of CRN Magazine from a field of applications and nominations from vendor channel organizations, distributors and solution providers.
"Now in its 9th annual publication, CRN's special 'Women of the Channel' issue is one of our most popular of the year," said Kelley Damore, vice president and editorial director, UBM Channel. "We want to honor and congratulate these women for their contributions to the industry and their respective organizations."
