The Global Technology Distribution Council (GTDC) has announced that its CEO, Tim Curran, is retiring from the organisation after leading its development over the past 16 years. From his appointment to the position in 2002 to this year, Curran has focused on creating better awareness and understanding of distribution’s growing impact and value worldwide.

“It’s been a fantastic overall experience with countless memories that are among the best in my life,” Curran said reflecting on his tenure at the GTDC, which concludes on January 2nd 2019. “I’m especially grateful for the team we created, the incredible support they provided over the years, and all the industry contacts I’ve had the pleasure of engaging on all sides of the industry – from the distribution community worldwide as well as technology companies across all regions. My heartfelt thanks go out to everyone, along with my strong intent to stay in touch and potentially contribute in new ways.”

“Although I’m retiring from the GTDC, and that inherently entails slowing down, I will remain an active and passionate voice for all this industry offers, particularly from a channel perspective,” Curran added. “It’s been an honour to be a part of the channel’s remarkable evolution over the past three decades, including at the GTDC and prior with both distribution and vendor companies.”

Alain Monié, chairman of the GTDC’s board of directors and CEO of Ingram Micro, said: “Tim is a very highly regarded industry professional who has done a lot for the GTDC and its members. His knowledge, commitment and engagement made a profound difference that will have a lasting impact.”

In light of Curran’s departure, Kavita May, GTDC’s senior VP of planning and operations, will assume interim leadership responsibilities.
