Ingram’s Brandel on 2017 highlights, 2018 plans [video]

The 2018 NewYear’s Series kicks off in video format, as I sit down with Ingram Micro Canada country chief executive Bill Brandel to discuss the distributor’s big moments of 2017, and big plans for 2018.

2017 was Brandel’s first full year leading the Canadian business, and he talks about how things went for Ingram in Canada, including growth in the cloud, high-profile vendor awards, and some changes the organization has made internally to better serve its customers.

Then he moves to his priorities for 2018, where Ingram will be investing, and what solution providers can expect from the distributor this year.

He also touches on how he feels his solution provider customers are feeling about their business prospects as we head into the new year.

Check out the video below for full details.

The New Year’s Series continues — in podcast form — later this week, as we review the year that was 2017, and look forward to 2018 with Dell EMC Canada channel chief Deanna Thomson.
