“Sony continues to be a leader and innovator in consumer electronics across the world and our renewed partnership will see us deliver Sony’s premium value range through to our valued business partners.” 

Yuzo Otsuki, managing director at Sony Australia and New Zealand, added that Sony has a “proud commercial history” with Ingram Micro”. 

“I look forward to embarking on this new chapter with Tim and his team and I’m excited for years of strong growth together,” he added.
