“Patrick is an outstanding business leader. He has consistently empowered his team to innovate and transform our go-to-market business model by harnessing the power of data and digital, setting a new standard in our market for personalized, targeted customer engagement and operational excellence,” said Hume. “His model of servant leadership has allowed for the incubation of new ideas not only to grow business for TD SYNNEX and our partners, but also to ensure that we are responsible corporate citizens committed to making our planet a better place for our co-workers and our communities.”
With this organizational structure change, regional presidents in the Americas, Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) and Europe will now report into Zammit, along with the corporate functions responsible for global strategy and information technology. Additionally, Michael Urban, President, Americas, has decided to leave the company and has offered to support Patrick with this transition through March 1.
“We thank Michael for playing a key role in bringing together TD SYNNEX over the past two years. He and his team delivered a very successful merger. He also drove our business growth and strategy in the Americas, outpacing the market and establishing TD SYNNEX as a leader in the region. We wish him well in his future endeavors,” Hume continued. “As we continue to evolve and grow TD SYNNEX to meet the increasing needs and demands of the ever-changing IT landscape, our growth-oriented business strategy and focus on providing the best possible experience for our partners and vendors remain unchanged.”
Zammit has been with the organization since 2017, leading the European region after Tech Data’s acquisition of Avnet Technology Solutions, and taking over responsibilities for the APJ region in 2021. Prior to joining Tech Data, Patrick served in a variety of management roles at Avnet, beginning in 1993. During his tenure at Avnet, he served as Global President, serving on its executive board, and earlier as President, EMEA Marketing, among other roles. Prior to joining Avnet, Patrick was a Senior Consultant at Arthur Andersen from 1989 to 1993.
