SANTA ANA, Calif., Feb. 12, 2013

SANTA ANA, Calif., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM),
the world's largest technology distributor and a global leader in IT
supply-chain, mobile device lifecycle services and logistics solutions, today
announced that Jac Currie, 48, a 25-year veteran of the telecommunication and
mobility industry and a former executive of BrightPoint for 14 years, has been
appointed president of Ingram Micro Europe Mobility, effective Feb. 18,
2013. He will report to Shailendra Gupta, global head of Ingram Micro's
Mobility business and senior executive vice president and president, Ingram
Micro Asia Pacific.

Currie will replace Anurag Gupta, current president of Ingram Micro Europe
Mobility, who has resigned to pursue personal interests. Gupta will work with
Currie through his departure on March 31, 2013, to help ensure continuity and
a seamless transition. 

"Jac is a well-respected executive in the mobility industry, and his extensive
industry experience in the mobile sector, business development and strategy
suits him ideally for this role," said Shailendra Gupta. "He has significant
industry experience and is intimately familiar with the mobility and
telecommunications partners, vendors and customers around the globe. During
his time with BrightPoint, Jac was a driving force behind establishing and
growing the company's businesses in the Middle East, Africa and Asia. He also
has considerable experience with the European operations and, as such, is
positioned to quickly reestablish with that team. I am confident he will
immediately benefit this highly important European region and build on
Anurag's good work, driving additional profitable growth throughout the
region."

"I'm excited about joining Ingram Micro Mobility and returning to the
industry," commented Currie. "We have an excellent business in Europe and
significant opportunity to drive meaningful cost and revenue synergies under
the recent combination of Ingram Micro and BrightPoint. I look forward to
getting to work and I am confident that our team can increase our contribution
to the performance of the overall group."

"We appreciate Anurag's service over the past 10 years," Gupta added. "He did
a good job reorganizing the European team and initiating the move into
logistics, providing benefits we expect to continue to reap for many years to
come."

Currie was most recently executive vice president and chief information
officer of BrightPoint, where he was responsible for the development and
execution of the global information technology strategy from 2006 until May
2012, when he decided to leave the company to relocate his family to the U.K.
From 2006 to 2007, he served as president of emerging markets for BrightPoint,
during which time he expanded the company's presence in Africa, the Middle
East, Eastern Europe and South East Asia helping to drive revenues in the
region. Currie was also instrumental in the acquisition and subsequent
integration of Dangaard Telecom AS, a former competitor. Currie joined
BrightPoint in 1998 as regional managing director of the Middle East business,
responsible for expansion into Southeast Asia. In 2002, he oversaw a
management buy-out of BrightPoint's operations across the Middle East and
Africa and entered into a joint venture with BrightPoint to establish
BrightPoint India. 

Prior to his tenure with BrightPoint, Currie served in roles with Islacom
Philippines, Spectrum Communications in East Africa and Millicom International
Cellular.
