In a move it said will “help focus” its wholesale business and its distribution services operation, Ingram Content Group has re-aligned the responsibilities of some of its top executives.
George Tattersfield, who heads Ingram’s wholesale purchasing group, will now report to Shawn Everson, the company’s chief commercial officer. Since Ingram’s purchase of the Perseus distribution business, some wholesale units, including Tattersfield's group, had reported to Phil Ollila, chief content officer. Now, all wholesale operations are under Everson.
Accompanying that change, Ingram’s shared services sales team (which was acquired in the Perseus deal and was led by Jeanne Emanuel) will now roll up to Ollila, who heads the distribution and services businesses. Previously, Emanuel had reported to Everson.
“The growth and success of our distribution business is tied to the strength of our sales team, aligning all of distribution sales with the distribution business will help us bring even more value to our clients,” said Ollila.
