Company Executive Honored for Third Consecutive Year for Exemplary Leadership and Support of Local Community
BUFFALO, N.Y. – August 6, 2018 — Demonstrating unsurpassed leadership in the organization and commitment to bettering the Buffalo community, Ingram Micro is pleased to announce Business First has once again named Susan O’Sullivan, vice president, U.S. Sales and Buffalo campus executive, to its Power 125 list for 2018. This is the third consecutive year O’Sullivan has received this elite recognition.
Business First compiles these annual rankings and defines “power” by the level of influence a woman has at her company, in her city or county and the length of her career. This year’s list highlights the most influential women in eight counties of Western New York.
"We congratulate Susan on once again being included among the most influential women leaders in the WNY region," said Kirk Robinson, senior vice president and chief country executive, Ingram Micro U.S. “Ingram Micro has always been committed to having a diverse workforce and Susan has proven herself time and time again in her business excellence acumen, her positive leadership style and the way she inspires her colleagues and the Ingram Micro team to support the local community through giving and volunteering.”
O'Sullivan began her career with Ingram Micro more than 25 years ago joining the company in 1990 as an assistant sales representative. She has proven herself as an effective leader and been promoted many times throughout her tenure, earning responsibility for the Buffalo Campus as “campus champion” for Ingram Micro’s operations in Western New York. In addition to being a leader at Ingram Micro, O’Sullivan also serves as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors for the United Way of Buffalo and Erie County, sits on the executive committee for Women United and was recently named to the Board of Regents for Canisius College. She has also been celebrated by CRN as one of the most influential and impactful Women of the Channel, an annual list that recognizes top female leaders in the IT channel.
“It’s an honor to be recognized once again by Business First,” said O’Sullivan. “Women are underrepresented in the IT workforce and I am honored to be a part of the solution, helping other women build their careers in the technology industry and find their voice in the workforce by building a more inclusive work environment that prioritizes their associates and is fixated on delivering a positive customer experience.”
A Buffalo native, O’Sullivan holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Canisius College. She has participated and completed Ingram Micro's Leadership Academy through the University of California Irvine’s Paul Merage School of Business and also participated and completed Ingram Micro's Global General Manager Program. Some of O’Sullivan’s previous accolades include recognition as a CRN Women of the Channel for the last six consecutive years and being named the 2017 recipient of Ingram Micro’s most prestigious award – The Martha Ingram Leadership Award, given in name of one of the company's founding owners, which celebrates an associate who exemplifies courage, selflessness, honesty and integrity.
