Sandy Scott has left Ingram Micro UK. The news broke this afternoon after rumours had started circulating in the channel at lunchtime. A number of sources were quick to tell The Register that Scott had gone, but the debate was still raging over whether he jumped or was pushed. Either way, don’t forget, you read it here first. This is one that could have caught some of the channel weekly papers napping. Microscope is unlikely to have got it, PC Dealer definitely has and it’s anyone’s guess as to whether Computer Reseller News UK will have it. Scott’s swift departure followed the announcement in March that the US distributor would cut 1,400 jobs. Ingram also admitted earlier this month that it was being forced to raise prices due to market pressure. One source suggested that the distributor’s poor performance had resulted in Scott having to fall on his sword. He joined Ingram last year from private health insurance company PPP, with a plan to revitalise the distributor. ®
