Mark Chlebek to Head Pan-EMEA Ingram Micro Division
2017-04-25

Broadliner Ingram Micro has unveiled a change of leadership in its pan-EMEA division. Mark Chlebek replaces Robert Beck as executive director of this division, managing relationships with pan-EMEA vendor partners. Beck will "gradually withdraw from the day-to-day business", before ending his 25 year career with the distributor. A 20-year company veteran, having joined Ingram in 1997, Chlebek takes responsibility for "purchasing and business management" for regional vendor partners managed by the distributor on a centralised basis. As part of the EMEA senior management team he reports to global group president of EMEA Mark Snider. "I'm excited to have Mark Chlebek coming into this strategic role. Mark brings with him years of EMEA-wide experience driving innovation and growth for our business. I am looking forward to working with him in his new capacity", Snider says. "I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Robert Beck for his many years of service and dedication to Ingram Micro. I'd also like to thank him for volunteering to help with a smooth transition, ensuring Ingram Micro business will continue without interruption to our vendor and customer partners." Chlebek is but one recent promotion in Ingram management. In February the distributor appointed Jacek Murawski as VP of EMEA vender engagement, with Günter Schiessl and Jordi Muñoz reporting into him in roles overseeing the management of partnerships with volume and value vendors respectively.

Its deep expertise in reselling a wide array of technology solutions and the recent launch in META of the Cyber Security Business Unit offering value added services, enables business partners such as PhishMe to operate efficiently and successfully in the markets they serve.

Marc Kassis, director of cyber security Ingram Micro META region, added: "Our goal is to continually enhance the value proposition to our business partners with a dedicated range of services and relevant vendor solutions. With the addition of Phishme to our offerings, we are further solidifying Ingram Micro’s position as a leading value added distributor of Cyber Security solutions."

PhishMe’s phishing incident response platform and phishing threat intelligence enables Security Operations Centre and Incident Response teams to respond faster to real threats – decreasing the risk of data breaches. Its intelligence-driven solutions empower employees to be an active line of defense and source of attack intelligence by enabling them to identify, report, and mitigate spear phishing, malware, and drive-by threats. The company has received a range of respected industry awards over the course of 2016, and recently announced record year-on-year growth.

"Collaboration with industry leading IT and security companies such as Ingram Micro extends our reach to a greater number of customers facing an unprecedented increase in frequency and damage caused by cyberattacks", explained Jim Hansen, Chief Operating Officer for PhishMe. "PhishMe is the only security company that provides a comprehensive and scalable human phishing defense solution. In partnership with Ingram Micro, we are giving organizations across the META region the security solutions and intelligence they need to proactively detect and quickly respond to cyber attacks."
