Ingram Micro has named a new leader of its Asia Pacific operations - Diego Utge will become executive vice president and group president for the region, effective 1 January 2020.
Utge is a 17-year Ingram veteran, having joined in 2002 as a finance manager for Ingram Micro’s Miami Export an since risen through the ranks to lead the distributor in Brazil and India.
Utge’s promotion comes after his predecessor Mike Zillis was made executive vice president and CFO, effective 1 January 2020.
That position became vacant after incumbent Gina Mastantuono revealed she was “leaving to take the role of CFO for a US publicly traded company”, according to an Ingram statement.
“Succession planning is always a focus for Ingram Micro, and we are fortunate to have a strong bench of talent, such as Mike and Diego, ready and willing to take on new responsibilities,” said Alain Monié, Ingram Micro CEO.
Utge joined Ingram India a little under two years ago and his LinkedIn profile suggests that was his first role in the region. He will soon lead Ingram across Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam.
