Santa Ana-based Ingram Micro has promoted Paul Bay to be the new president of Ingram Micro North America. Bay is currently the executive vice president of the technology distributor’s North American division, a role he has served in since June 2010. Bay will also earn the title senior executive vice president with his promotion.
Bay will replace Keith Bradley, current senior executive vice president and president of Ingram Micro North America, when Bradley steps down at the end of this year. Bradley will continue with the company until Mar. 1, 2013 to assist with the managerial transition.
“Paul is a respected and talented executive, with a track record of guiding operations to new levels of excellence," said Ingram Micro’s President and CEO Alain Monié. “Under his leadership, he organized the North American commercial, corporate and advanced solutions groups into efficient, growing and highly profitable divisions.”
Monié himself was recently promoted to chief executive officer of the company in January 2012. He has been with the company since 2003.
Bay joined Ingram Micro in 1995 in the sales division. He progressed through positions of increasing responsibility with the firm until 2006, when he left to join Punch Software as that company’s CEO. He returned to Ingram Micro in 2010, at which time he assumed his current role.
“I'm excited about taking the reins of our North American operations,” Bay said of his promotion. “North America is operating well and executing on its financial and strategic goals and I am confident we will continue to deliver on our performance objectives.”
