ST. PETERSBURG, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 02/18/14 -- The Global
Technology Distribution Council (GTDC) today announced the
appointment of Kevin Murai, president and CEO of SYNNEX Corporation
(NYSE: SNX), a leading distributor of IT products and services, as
the organization's vice chairman.
In this additional role, Murai helps drive the strategic direction
and initiatives of the GTDC, an industry association for the world's
leading technology distributors that annually generates more than
$130 billion in global product and services revenue. GTDC members

Murai brings more than 25 years in technology distribution experience
to the GTDC executive committee, including an extensive background in
global management, operations and customer relationships. He joined

list in 2013, the fifth consecutive year CRN has featured Murai as a
top industry executive. He has led SYNNEX to unprecedented success --
including continuing a record streak of 106 consecutive profitable
quarters -- while spearheading new business development programs in
emerging markets ranging from mobility to cloud.

distribution industry will be of tremendous value to the GTDC and its

IT supply chain."
"I'm honored to serve as vice chairman of the GTDC," Murai said. "The
role of technology distributors is evolving and diversifying faster
