It looks like Desmond Ling has jumped ship at Ingram Micro in Australia to join Exeed New Zealand.
The news that Ling is to leave Ingram Micro Australia broke on Wednesday; he spent just over a year across the ditch.
On Thursday, Ingram Micro New Zealand MD Gary Bigwood confirmed that Ling is not joining the Kiwi operation, saying in an email “No, Desmond is not returning to Ingram Micro NZ, but we wish him all the best in whatever his next venture might be.”
Techday rang Exeed marketing manager Joanne Burgess for comment, who suggested we speak with director Justin Tye.
Messages were left for Tye - and for Ling at Ingram Micro’s Sydney office – and questions e-mailed.
We’ll update this story as soon as we hear from either party.
