ScanSource Revamps Structure, Management

Distributor ScanSource Inc. has revamped its structure and management.

The company says it is creating new leadership roles and reporting segments with global growth in mind. As a result, ScanSource now runs two technology units, each with its own president. The divisions are Worldwide Barcode and Security, which includes ScanSource POS and Barcode and ScanSource Security, and Worldwide Communications and Services, which encompasses ScanSource Catalyst, ScanSource Communications and ScanSource Services Group.

The new reporting segments of Worldwide Barcode and Security and Worldwide Communications and Services will replace the geographic segments of North America and International.

As a market leader in our technology segments, we have the opportunity to leverage our size and experience to deliver more value to our vendor and reseller partners in our existing markets,” said Mike Baur, CEO of ScanSource.

Mike Ferney has been appointed to the new position of President, Worldwide Communications and Services. Ferney joined ScanSource in 1998 and most recently served as vice president of merchandising for ScanSource Catalyst where he managed vendor relationships. Prior to this, Ferney served as vice president of sales for ScanSource Communications.

Rich Long will be president of ScanSource Catalyst and ScanSource Communications, North America. Long previously was vice president of marketing and corporate communications for ScanSource Inc. He has worked in marketing and merchandising management positions for ScanSource, both in North America and in Europe, and in channel leadership for Extreme Networks.

Scott Benbenek was named to the new position of senior vice president of worldwide operations and integration support. Benbenek previously was served president of worldwide operations for ScanSource.
