INGRAM MICRO ANNOUNCES PROMOTION OF DAVID DUKES TO CO-CHAIRMAN AND COO
 Ingram Announces Promotion of David Dukes, the Creation of
 an Executive Office, and the Search for a New President
 SANTA ANA, Calif., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Ingram Micro announced the promotion of company President David R. Dukes to the newly created position of co-chairman and chief operating officer and the creation of an Executive Office comprised of Co-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Chip Lacy, Dukes and a new president to be appointed later. The company has initiated the process to select a new president.
 "With our company moving toward $3 billion in annual worldwide revenue," said Lacy, "David and I decided the company's management of operations, strategic vendor and customer relationships and international growth required an expanded executive management team." Lacy noted that Ingram Micro was now almost three times the size of the company when Dukes first joined it in September 1989.
 "David's promotion has been well earned," Lacy said. "He has provided us leadership in many areas with the most important being management practices, organization and planning, key vendor and customer relations and strategic direction. Most of all, he is a terrific manager and his new responsibilities will allow him to broaden his impact on the company."
 "Chip and I are intent on adapting the company strategy to the changing dynamics of the microcomputer industry," said Dukes. "The marketplace poses opportunities and challenges for us. By broadening and strengthening our senior management team at this time, we are making sure we'll be able to maintain the same concentrated focus on all issues that is essential to maintaining the success of the company."
 "The recent addition of key vendors such as IBM, Apple, HP workstations and NEC has presented the company with an unprecedented business opportunity," added Lacy. "We intend to realize the maximum potential from our relationships with these vendors as we take their products to the VAR market. It is the addition of vendors such as these, the other new programs which we are implementing and our continuing international expansion that has necessitated this expansion of our management structure."
 The specific functions of the new Executive Office will be developed with more precision over the next few months. The essential purpose in the establishment of the new Executive Office is to free up additional time for Lacy and Dukes to concentrate more fully on the strategic priorities they have set for themselves. Lacy will increase his focus on the continued development of the emerging aspects of the company's business while Dukes will increase his focus on strategic vendor and customer opportunities throughout the world.
 Dukes joined Ingram Micro Inc. as its president and chief operating officer in September 1989. Dukes has been active in the PC industry since 1981. He later joined Inacomp Computer Centers where he served in various executive capacities prior to joining Ingram Micro. He has always been active in the industry, serving on dealer advisory councils for Apple, Compaq and Hayes, and continues to be a frequent participant on executive panels at industry forums. In 1989 he was named "Dealer of the Year" by the National Office Machine Dealers Association. In 1990 and again in 1991, Computer Reseller News named Dukes to its list of the top 25 most influential executives of the microcomputer industry.
 Ingram Micro Inc. is the world's largest wholesale distributor of microcomputer products, with more than 12,000 in stock from over 600 of the world's leading hardware and software companies. It sells to 60,000 reseller customers in 65 countries, has distribution operations in seven, including international subsidiaries in Canada, the United Kingdom, Belgium, France, The Netherlands and Italy.
