In their new assignments, the EMEA presidents will split their new global responsibilities. Slobodan Puljarevic will oversee global supplier management, Avnet Design Services and the design chain strategy in support of the value proposition to accelerate growth for Avnet. Mario Orlandi is responsible for driving closer alignment between Avnet’s global IoT capabilities and Avnet Integrated solutions with Avnet’s core electronic components selling strategy. By extending and differentiating Avnet’s overall value proposition with leading-edge IoT and integrated solutions capabilities, customers will be able to enrich their products with IoT technology and state of the art embedded computing, server and display solutions.
Phil Gallagher, interim CEO of Avnet, Inc., said: “Avnet EMEA has been a long-standing successful model within Avnet for demand creation, solution selling, process improvement and fast execution. To learn from and share their best practices globally, I have appointed Puli and Mario as new members of the global executive leadership team to help guide our global strategy and operations. Together with the other regional business leaders, they will drive Avnet’s key organizations to develop a second-to-none customer journey, from design to manufacturing, from small orders to large supply chain engagements. I look forward to even greater collaboration and input from our regions at the executive level.”
As both Puljarevic and Orlandi take on global responsibilities within Avnet, the company also announced the promotion of two top executives to “Speedboat” presidents. Effective January 1, 2021, Thomas Staudinger, senior vice president sales & marketing at EBV Elektronik will succeed Slobodan Puljarevic as President of EBV Elektronik and Gilles Beltran, vice president sales at Avnet Silica, will succeed Mario Orlandi as President of Avnet Silica.
