Ryda departs Ingram's Vantex division

02 Aug 2010

Eric Ryda, Senior Business Manager at Ingram's Vantex division has left the company effective immediately.

In a LinkedIn farewell post, Ryda confirmed that he left the company at the end of July.

"Well this is the end of an era, as of 30 July I will no longer be at Vantex,” he wrote. "After joining the team back in 2005 I have had the pleasure of seeing the business grow to be one of the strongest distributors in our niche in the ANZ market.”

He continued, "It's been my privilege to be part of the management team as we integrated our business with Ingram Micro and then less than a year later implemented SAP. Alas, it's time to move on... As for my future I think it’s time to kick up my feet, reflect and finish that list that's been on our fridge for far too long... Life is good.”

Ryda was Mobile and Wireless Division Manager at Vantex in Penrose. He joined the Provenco Technology in 2001 as Business Development Manager after working for Dematic as New Zealand Operations Manager.

He transferred to Transtech Distributors (now Vantex) shortly after it was acquired by Provenco Group and was responsible for sales and delivery of all mobile and wireless computing hardware for Vantex in New Zealand.

Ingram Micro’s Vantex division recently announced it will distribute Ingenico’s EFTPOS payment Solutions to the New Zealand market in partnership with local payment systems vendor, Skyzer Technologies.
