As part of the "de-layering" and "alignment" operation announced earlier this month Ingram Micro sets to reshuffle its European business by centralising support functions such as human resource, finance, information systems and operations.
The aim? To "transform its current European organisation into a consistent pan-European operating model."
As a result management duties currently performed at its Belgium HQ will be moved to various competency centres across the continent-- the Dutch operation is to house the European finance competence centre, Germany will host the Advanced Solution business and France will take control of European vendor management roles.
The Bulgaria shared service centre will also see expansion via transfer of additional country business-specific support functions, as well as the consolidation of activities from the Spanish regional accounting centre.
