In his new role, he is responsible for managing the Intelisys sales organization and collaborating on a go-to-market strategy.

ScanSource Wheelings & Dealings

Distributor ScanSource, Intelisys’ parent company, this week agreed to sell some of its Latin America product businesses to Intcomex. That includes businesses in Mexico, Colombia, Chile and Peru. The sale includes its Miami-based export operations, or Latin America business outside Brazil.

The move confirms statements ScanSource chairman and CEO Mike Baur made a year ago. At that time, the company said plans were underway to sell off certain businesses outside of the U.S., Canada and Brazil. The planned sale is part of a strategic portfolio repositioning.

“After a very thorough process, we are pleased to have found a highly respected, well-established buyer with a proven track record in Latin America,” Baur said this week. “Our more than 140 employees in Latin America are excited to become a part of Intcomex, a company that shares our commitment to long-term partner relationships. Our business in Latin America fits well with the Intcomex business, and I see this as a positive move for our employees, partners and suppliers.

Intcomex, founded in 1989 in Florida, offers value-added solutions and technology products.

News of these divestitures comes less than three weeks after ScanSource announced 200 layoffs, part of $30 million in cuts companywide. The distributor also is in the process of shutting down Canpango, a Salesforce implementation business, it acquired two years ago. ScanSource pointed to economic struggles due to the coronavirus pandemic as reasons behind the cost-saving moves.
