Distributor Ingram Micro has announced the appointment of Leon De Suza as the new Managing Director for its New Zealand operations on March 27, 2024. De Suza’s promotion comes after an 18-year commitment to Ingram Micro and is deemed an outcome of his impressive work record and vast business know-how.

Tim Ament, Chief Country Executive for ANZ at Ingram Micro, praised De Suza's abilities and track record. He stated, "Leon’s proven record of driving growth and fostering strong relationships with partners positions him as the ideal leader to spearhead our go-to-market teams in New Zealand.
