"It has been the greatest privilege of my professional career to serve as CEO of TD SYNNEX.

Zammit, who has served as the company's chief operating officer since January 2024, brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record of driving growth and operational excellence. Zammit has been instrumental in coordinating the company's business strategy, driving profitable growth and accelerating the adoption of new, high-growth technologies around the globe. Zammit led the European region beginning in 2017, following Tech Data’s acquisition of Avnet Technology Solutions. His role expanded in 2021 to include responsibilities for the APJ region. His tenure at Avnet, which began in 1993, saw him in various management roles, culminating as Global President of the Technology Solutions division, where he served on its executive board. His earlier roles at Avnet included President of EMEA Electronic Marketing and European CFO.

"I am honored to succeed Rich and lead TD SYNNEX into its next chapter. I look forward to building on the strong foundation we have established and driving forward our strategy and digitization roadmap to ensure we are constantly delivering the greatest value to our co-workers, partners, vendors, and shareholders,” said Zammit. “Rich has been an outstanding leader and I look forward to continuing to work with him in his role on our board of directors.”

Hume joined what was then Tech Data in 2016 as COO, taking over as CEO in 2018. During his tenure, he has helped lead the company through a period of significant growth and transformation, including the acquisition of Avnet TS, taking the company private in partnership with Apollo Asset Management and the successful merger of Tech Data and SYNNEX.

Under his leadership, TD SYNNEX has embraced a culture of servant leadership, focusing on empowering employees, fostering an inclusive environment and building a company with a purpose that extends beyond financial success.

The Board of Directors expressed its deep gratitude to Rich Hume for his leadership and contributions to TD SYNNEX and extends its best wishes to him in his retirement.
