SANTA ANA, Calif., April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM), the world's largest technology distributor and supply-chain services provider, today announced that the company's chief financial officer Bill Humes has been promoted and is assuming the title of chief operating and financial officer, effective immediately.
