Murphy (pictured) will start in her new role in April. She will be responsible for leading the company’s 7,000-strong European workforce, driving business strategy and operational execution in the region.
She will report to Patrick Zammit, who she succeeds as president, Europe, and will serve on the company's global executive team. Zammit took up his new role of chief operating officer at TD Synnex in January.
Murphy returns to TD Synnex following two years as chief executive officer, Europe at NTT. In this role, she held responsibility for the strategy and P&L for 14 countries, delivering technology solutions, consulting, and managed services to enterprise clients across multiple sectors.
Prior to that, she served at TD Synnex for more than 20 years in various leadership roles, including senior vice president, advanced and specialised solutions, Europe, and regional leader for Northern Europe.
Zammit said, “It’s fantastic to welcome Miriam back to TD Synnex. Thanks to her prior experience with us, we already know about her many great leadership attributes. She brings a people-first mentality, combined with exceptional business acumen, an extensive network of contacts at vendors and customers, and a relentless commitment to delivering excellence to all our stakeholders.
“She returns reinforced by her experiences outside the company and will bring fresh perspectives on end-market and customer requirements, especially in the strategic area of services, as we strive to continually evolve our go-to-market and create a best-in-class value proposition and experience for our partners and vendors.”
Murphy added, “I am delighted and honoured to take up the leadership of TD Synnex’s European business. The company’s more than 7,000 co-workers in the region play a vital role at the heart of the channel ecosystem, fostering continuous evolution and seamless connections among vendors, partners, and their end customers.
“I am looking forward to supporting them as we strive to help all our channel partners to grow their businesses and deliver great outcomes to the market.”
