TD SYNNEX (NYSE: SNX) announced today that Patrick Zammit has been named Chief Operating Officer, reporting to company CEO Rich Hume effective January 1. In this new role, Zammit will coordinate the company’s business strategy to drive profitable growth across all technologies, geographies and vendors, and to accelerate the adoption of new, high-growth technologies around the globe. Zammit has served at TD SYNNEX as president, Europe, since 2017, adding executive responsibility for Asia Pacific and Japan in 2021. A new leader for TD SYNNEX’s business in Europe will be announced in the coming weeks.
“Patrick is an outstanding business leader. He has consistently empowered his team to innovate and transform our go-to-market business model by harnessing the power of data and digital, setting a new standard in our market for personalized, targeted customer engagement and operational excellence,” said Hume. “His model of servant leadership has allowed for the incubation of new ideas not only to grow business for TD SYNNEX and our partners, but also to ensure that we are responsible corporate citizens committed to making our planet a better place for our co-workers and our communities.”
With this organizational structure change, regional presidents in the Americas, Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) and Europe will now report into Zammit, along with the corporate functions responsible for global strategy and information technology. Additionally, Michael Urban, President, Americas, has decided to leave the company and has offered to support Patrick with this transition through March 1.

We wish him well in his future endeavors,” Hume continued. “As we continue to evolve and grow TD SYNNEX to meet the increasing needs and demands of the ever-changing IT landscape, our growth-oriented business strategy and focus on providing the best possible experience for our partners and vendors remain unchanged.”
