Dutkowsky, chairman and chief executive officer. “Tech Data is a stronger company today than it was a year ago. With the addition of Technology Solutions, we now have a richer portfolio of advanced technology vendors and customers, along with deeper skills to serve them. At the same time, we continue to accelerate the expansion of our capabilities in next-generation technologies. Our integration is progressing as planned and we are on track to deliver our synergy and debt reduction targets.”
