CLEARWATER, Fla., July 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech Data Corporation
(Nasdaq:TECD) today announced the launch of its new Systems & Peripherals^IT
("S&P") product division, bringing together offerings from its core vendor
partners to build brands and solutions for its reseller customers. With a
theme of "Complete. Not Complex.," the S&P division gives solution providers
dedicated support and resources to help navigate the products, programs, and
growth opportunities that exist in the IT channel. Combining Tech Data's
former Client Systems and Peripherals businesses, the new division will be led
by Wendy Maurer-Linsky, whose new title of vice president, Product Marketing,
Systems & Peripherals, reflects her increased scope of responsibility.

"The new Systems & Peripherals^IT division gives our resellers access to
strong, high-growth brands and technologies, while enabling them to leverage
merchandising solutions, maximize profitability, and deepen relationships with
their end-user customers," said Joe Quaglia, senior vice president, U.S.
Marketing and president, TDMobility at Tech Data. "As it is a natural fit to
sell a system and complement it with a peripheral, this enables our team, our
solution providers, and our vendor partners to better capture the
opportunities that exist in this space, including expanded merchandising and
solutions bundling.This new division strategically aligns with the needs of
our channel partners, allowing us to leverage our infrastructure with vendors
whose products and solutions previously included both Client Systems and

The S&P division is focused on five key growth areas: Visual Solutions,
Imaging & Print, Power & Energy Management, Computing, and Consumer
Electronics. Tech Data has invested in the training and education of its S&P
team to fully enable its partners to effectively go to market, offering
certifications, trainings, installation, and content management. The "IT" in
Systems & Peripherals^IT represents the exponentially powerful service and
solutions that Tech Data is dedicated to providing its partners.

Showcased in Tech Data's recently expanded Solutions Center at the company's
headquarters in Clearwater, Florida, the Systems & Peripherals^IT Experience
