If you listened closely last week, you may have heard the rumble as the distribution landscape shifted once more.

Another giant of IT will focus on the Pro AV market. Avnet Technology Solution is a $10 billion distributor but unlike its cousins (Ingram Micro, Tech Data) Avnet ATS has always avoided the PC itself. Instead Avnet specializes in vertical markets and higher-valued IT networks and infrastructure.

Graeme Watt is President of Avnet Technology Solutions, EMEA and comes from their acquisition of Bell Micro, a storage distributor you may recognize as they frequented the broadcast industry (and often exhibited at IBC). Prior to Bell Micro, Watt was President EMEA at Tech Data EMEA.
