BUFFALO, NY and IRVINE, CA, – Nov. 11, 2016 – On Friday, Nov. 11, Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) will host veteran appreciation events at several of its U.S. campuses. The Irvine headquarters will welcome associate veterans and their guests to an event at 3 p.m. in the Market Cafe at Park Place Irvine, the office complex in which the company is based. Ingram Micro has also opened its appreciation event to any veterans from neighboring businesses in Park Place Irvine.
The event will include remarks from Kirk Robinson, senior vice president, Ingram Micro U.S., as well as an inspirational guest speaker and a presentation of several donations to local veteran organizations. The event will also celebrate the birthdays of the U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Navy.
Ingram Micro's Buffalo campus will honor its veteran associates during an appreciation breakfast on campus from 8:30-10:30 a.m. that day, and will donate to a local veteran charity. All Buffalo associates who have served or are serving in the U.S. military are welcome to attend. At 11 a.m. all Ingram Micro Buffalo associates, and family members who are veterans, may participate in a campus-wide ceremony to celebrate Veterans Day and honor America's heroes.
"We often say that our people are the secret to our success, and what makes our business stand apart. We're proud to have so many U.S. veterans among our associates, and today provides us an opportunity to thank them for their service to our country, our community and Ingram Micro," said Robinson.
It is a standing commitment of Ingram Micro to hire qualified veterans into the Ingram Micro family, supporting the men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces by providing meaningful, challenging career opportunities. The ideals of honor, courage and commitment instilled through military service align closely with Ingram Micro's own core values.

"Throughout the year, we participate in and support a variety of Ingram Micro events, but the opportunity to show our support for the veterans we work closely with as part of the Ingram Micro family is one of the high points of the year," said Larry Hann, senior national account manager, APC/Schneider Electric.
