Phoenix, Arizona - 21 February, 2019 - I would to thank all of our customers and partners for their business and share some exciting news. At Avnet Integrated, we are focused on being a competitive advantage for our customers—getting you to market quickly, and enabling you to achieve your growth goals. We achieve that by employing the very best people in the industry and that includes the newest addition to my leadership team.
I am pleased to announce that Nicole Enright will serve as our new leader for our Americas business. As Vice President of Avnet Integrated Americas, Nicole will lead our sales, customer management, solutions management, operations and lifecycle services efforts.
Since joining Avnet in 2002, Nicole’s significant contributions have benefitted the organization and our customers globally. Nicole was recognized for five consecutive years (2011-15) by the industry publication CRN as a Power 100 Woman of the Channel, designated to the 100 highest-ranking women whose insight and influence help drive the success of the information technology channel. A recipient of Avnet’s highest honor, a Chairman’s Award, Nicole has successfully held senior-level positions in transformation, strategy, change management, M&A, operational excellence, marketing and HR.
I first began partnering with Nicole in 2010, when she managed our Avnet Embedded Customer Councils. She helped shape the strategy and structure to support our transformation from a regional to a global organization. I have no doubt that when you meet Nicole, you’ll share my enthusiasm and instantly recognize her passion for this business and for delivering sustainable value to our customers.
