Value-added distributor Ingram Micro has named industry expert Jeff Yelton as the new executive director and general manager of its North America data capture/point of sale (PoS) business.
He will be tasked with expanding the company’s channel partner value-add on five strategic technology pillars: payments, mobility, networking, omni-channel retailing and software-as-a-service (SaaS).
Yelton brings more than 30 years of channel and industry-specific experience to Ingram Micro, and previously served as the president of ScanSource POS and Barcode.
“Ingram Micro is spearheading several strategic technology, solutions and partner enablement initiatives within the data capture/POS space that will deliver greater competitive advantage and invigorate our channel partners to provide additional insight and value to the small and mid-size businesses they serve,” said Jay Miley, vice president and general manager for the Ingram Micro Advanced Technology Division. “Under Yelton’s leadership we will become a more strategic business partner and change agent to channel partners who want to deliver a complete solution that stems from the core to edge of the network.”
