Already this year in the New Year’s Podcast Series, we’ve heard one side of the Tech Data/Avnet merger story in our interview with Tech Data Canada’s Rick Reid. Now, we get the other side, as the New Year’s Podcast Series chats with Avnet chief Brian Aebig.
In our interview, Aebig touches on his feeling for the opportunity for the Avnet Technology Solutions business within Tech Data, what the combination will mean for solution providers, and how Avnet’s history as an acquirer is helping it as it prepares to be on the other side of the transaction.
Aebig also reviews the distributor’s performance, and that of the Canadian market, in 2016, and provides is thoughts on the mood in the channel in 2017, as well as Avnet’s own priorities for the year.
All that and more, in this edition of the ChannelBuzz.ca Podcast.
