Ingram Micro Promotes Felix Wong to President of Asia Pacific Mobility Group

Bruce Thomlinson to Focus on Driving Global Strategic Initiatives for Ingram Micro Worldwide as Senior Vice President

SANTA ANA, Calif., July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM), the world’s largest technology distributor and a global leader in IT supply-chain, mobile device lifecycle services and logistics solutions, today announced that Felix Wong, 46, a 20-year veteran of the mobile telecommunications and technology industries, and a former executive of BrightPoint for 12 years, has been promoted to president of Ingram Micro Mobility Asia Pacific, effective Aug. 1, 2013. Wong, who is currently vice president and managing director of South East Asia for Ingram Micro Mobility, will continue to be based in Singapore and will report to Shailendra Gupta, who assumes the newly created role heading the company’s global mobility operations as senior executive vice president and president, Mobility, on Aug. 1, 2013, as announced by the company last month.

Wong brings significant experience and knowledge in telecommunications technologies and markets to his new position and has established excellent, long-term relationships with carriers, OEMs, resellers and major retailers. Wong will replace Bruce Thomlinson, current president of Ingram Micro Mobility Asia Pacific. Thomlinson will continue with Ingram Micro as senior vice president, focusing on strategic initiatives to further the company’s growth in higher value businesses, including driving additional opportunities for the company’s mobility businesses in the Asia Pacific region. Upon assuming his new role, Thomlinson will report to Alain Monie, Ingram Micro president and CEO. He will initially work closely with Wong and Gupta to help ensure continuity and a seamless transition.

“We are fortunate to have a highly talented group of executives ready and willing to take on new responsibilities,” commented Monie. “Felix and Bruce are highly respected executives and each is recognized as an expert in the mobility and IT industries. They both bring an excellent blend of innovation and established best practices to their respective new positions and I am confident they will excel in their new roles and help Ingram Micro continue to drive solid growth, improving profitability and higher returns across our business.”

Wong has held roles of increasing responsibility with Brightpoint Inc., which was acquired by Ingram Micro in October 2012, and has been successful in driving strategy and growth initiatives for the mobility distribution and device lifecycle services businesses for the Asia Pacific region. He joined the company in 2001 when Advanced Portable Technologies — the business he founded in 1992 and grew to $25 million in annual revenues — was acquired by BrightPoint. He has been successful in driving mobility distribution and device lifecycle services strategy and growth for the Asia Pacific region. He attended the University of New South Wales (UNSW), receiving bachelor’s degrees in electrical engineering (with honors) and computer science. Wong was also awarded a graduate diploma from the Australian Graduate School of Management at UNSW and a post graduate degree in applied finance from Securities Institute of Australia.

Thomlinson has been with Ingram Micro Mobility for more than 25 years, which includes seven years at HatadiCorp, a wholesale electronics and network service provision company he owned and led prior to its acquisition by BrightPoint in 1996. He rapidly progressed within the company to senior executive roles, including managing director Australia, president Asia Pacific and president International Operations, and has been integral in helping to drive growth and profitability across the company’s mobility businesses throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific.

MediaTek Powers World’s First Triple-SIM 3G Smartphones

HSINCHU, July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — MediaTek Inc., a leading fabless semiconductor company for wireless communications and digital multimedia solutions, today announced the world’s first triple-SIM technology for 3G Android smartphones.

“MediaTek has long provided state-of-art solutions for multi-SIM mobile devices. 3G triple-SIM is yet another example of that,” says Brian Kwon, Head of Product Planning Group from LG Electronics. “Thanks to its groundbreaking technology, our new smartphones will significantly expand the connectivity options of our customers, and in so doing allow them to take advantage of multiple tariff plans.”

Beyond its pioneering technology, the 3G Triple-SIM technology also serves as a turnkey solution for manufacturers through its built-in user interface, which enables end-users to directly adjust or turn off the multi-SIM function if and when desired.

“In many emerging markets, multi-SIM support has become an absolute requirement. By creating a comprehensive total solution packed with premium features and advanced technologies, MediaTek is not only catering to end-user needs, but also attracting the attention of the world’s tier-one device makers,” says Jeffrey Ju, GM of MediaTek’s Smartphone Business Unit. “With our long line of exciting new products in the works, we expect to bring many more affordable-premium mobile device solutions to emerging markets and others in the near future.”
