Tanner started his career at Ingram Micro in late 2019 with no knowledge of the channel. Feeling capped after a stint doing healthcare recruiting, he decided to give Ingram Micro a chance after hearing raving reviews from a friend. “…I wanted more in terms of a career progression,” noted Tanner. “So, I joined and honestly, ever since then it has been a full skyrocket.” During his tenure with the company, Tanner has held multiple exciting positions, some new to the company, that have allowed him to continually grow and learn.

One of Ingram Micro’s tenets of success is talent. And across the company different talents are celebrated and encouraged. “We had a ton of learning opportunities,” shared Tanner. “It was nice to insert myself where I felt it was appropriate, but it was also nice that the company has some assumptive responsibility based on your role.” From leadership training for those aspiring to become managers to sale courses to keep our sales team in optimal shape, Ingram Micro offers many paths for career development and growth.
