Reducing security risks from open source software

Ingram Micro UK has made 50 redundancies across the board in its Milton Keynes office last Friday. This leaves around 450 staff in the UK. "The UK operation has been reviewed from top to bottom. The job cuts will streamline the business. There will be no mass layoff in the UK," an Ingram representative said. In March, Ingram warned it would slash 1,400 jobs, mainly in the US, and that first quarter earnings would fall short of analysts’ expectations. At the time, Ingram Micro European executive VP and COO Robert Grambo,said the European operation would keep evaluating working conditions and realign its business. Simon Aldous, one of Ingram’s newly appointed business unit directors, has also resigned. The company stressed the incidents were unrelated, saying Aldous had resigned voluntarily after eight years at the distributor. Aldous, director of the solutions business unit, was said to have "several irons in the fire". He will leave Ingram at the end of June. Grambo is returning to the US after a company re-jig. He is still executive vice president and COO- but this time for the US. He will report to Philip Ellett, Ingram executive vice president and president of Ingram US. Grambo, who joined Ingram in 1997, has been replaced by Gregory Spierkel. ®
