Tech Data Corporation CEO’s  Comments

“Our fiscal 2018 first-half results clearly show the enhanced earnings and cash-generating power of the new Tech Data.

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.
