I am pleased to announce that Tarik Faouzi has been named vice president, CloudBlue and cloud solutions at Ingram Micro Cloud, taking on an expanded role to lead go-to-market, sales, managed services and business operations for CloudBlue in addition to his existing responsibilities.

Appointing Tarik to this position is part of our continued focus on growing CloudBlue’s reach and scale, and our dedication to our customers’ success. By combining the cloud solution and CloudBlue sales teams under Tarik, it will ensure that CloudBlue continues to be a leading force in fulfilling the promise of cloud and anything as a service (XaaS).

He’s played a pivotal role in the development of CloudBlue and has helped us build the world’s largest cloud marketplace: Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace. Tarik has also been deeply and directly involved with nearly all of CloudBlue’s customers, working to optimize their go-to-market strategies, increase speed to market, and reduce customer churn with his forward-thinking recommendations. As he assumes even greater responsibility, our customers and partners can expect to see even more cutting-edge benefits.

Since joining Ingram Micro in 2014, Tarik has been instrumental in putting Ingram Micro Cloud at the forefront of cloud-delivery innovation. For the last four years, he has served as our vice president of global cloud partners and solutions at Ingram Micro Cloud. In this role, he was responsible for the product roadmap of Cloud Marketplace-related products, the development of new offerings and the expansion of professional services.

In addition, Tarik has been a big factor in CloudBlue’s technology strategy and customer success. Now, in this larger role, he’ll advance CloudBlue’s product and go-to-market strategy by taking on complete oversight and management of sales and services.

Tarik brings over two decades of global IT experience to the position. He’s worked and studied all over the world, from Morocco to France to Europe, and is now based at Ingram Micro’s headquarters in Irvine, California. 

We’re all truly excited for this new chapter of CloudBlue history under Tarik’s leadership and vision. With the exciting innovations we have planned, I’m sure you’ll agree.
