SANTA ANA, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 25, 2012) - Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) today announced Jason Bystrak, director of sales, Ingram Micro Services Division, North America, has been recognized by UBM Channel as one of CRN's 2012 "100 People You Don't Know, But Should." The annual list recognizes individual professionals within a vendor organization who are responsible for driving the behind-the-scenes efforts in channel marketing, operations and sales.

CRN's "100 People You Don't Know, But Should" executives are the directors, vice presidents and officers who lead their channel program without fanfare, exhibiting the strength, determination and creativity required to support solution providers on a daily basis.

"Ingram Micro's relentless focus on enablement, partnership and business execution goes unmatched in the technology channel and is accelerated by our team's experience and ongoing commitment to our partners' success," says Keith Bradley, president, Ingram Micro North America. "For nearly 17 years, Jason has engaged with and supported thousands of Ingram Micro channel partners throughout North America as they mature their business models to embrace new technologies and services, including cloud computing. We applaud Jason's commitment to the channel, our partners and Ingram Micro, and congratulate him on this well-deserved recognition."

Bystrak, who has served Ingram Micro since 1995 in a variety of sales leadership roles, is responsible for driving strategy, partner relationships and revenue for the Ingram Micro Services Division, which includes the distributor's growing portfolio of cloud, managed, professional and training services.

In his current role, Jason leads the sales efforts for Ingram Micro's North America Services Division, which includes one of the distributor's most strategic initiatives, Ingram Micro Cloud, as well as Ingram Micro Professional Services, the Ingram Micro Services Network (the IMSN) and the Ingram Micro Training Academy.

"I'm pleased to deliver our second annual list of '100 People You Don't Know, But Should' by continuing to honor the unsung leaders in the IT channel," said Kelley Damore, vice president, editorial director, UBM Channel. "This list recognizes the behind-the-scenes influencers within a vendor organization who are making a significant impact on the company's channel program, and the channel as a whole, by working in any capacity necessary to drive profit and success."

She adds, "While solution providers may already be aware of a vendor's channel chief, many are still unaware of the individuals behind the chiefs; the home office shot callers responsible for delivering a successful channel program. Many of these individuals lead the way without recognition, and yet they have made a significant impact in driving the success of their channel program. I'm pleased to bring attention to their contributions."

A sample of the list will be published in print and online at on June 25, 2012.
