Hyve Solutions Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of TD SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX) and a leading provider of hyperscale digital infrastructures, has promoted Gina Rugani to Chief Operating Officer (COO), reporting to Steve Ichinaga, President and founder of Hyve Solutions. An industry veteran, Rugani’s career has spanned from marketing to sales to IT, and most recently, business operations.
Rugani began her career at Compac Microelectronics in 1990 in sales and marketing. She was part of the team, along with Ichinaga, that renamed the company to SYNNEX Corporation. In 2000 she transitioned to work with IT to develop the company’s software system that handles sales and product management. She also initiated the business process outsourcing organization supporting the same groups. A few years later she created the sales operations organization responsible for system development and process improvements to facilitate sales and product management business units.
In 2007 Rugani’s role expanded into business operations with oversight and responsibility covering all business units. She spent the next decade supporting and developing the teams responsible for managing SYNNEX Corporation’s proprietary ERP system, cross-departmental process and procedure improvements, and the systematic solutions for its evolving businesses in areas such as Ecommerce, Cloud, Renewals, Services and Manufacturing. She also accumulated other areas of responsibility such as HRIS, business intelligence, merger/acquisition business onboarding.
She was promoted to vice president of business operations in 2008, then to corporate vice president in 2015. She began working at Hyve Solutions in 2019.
“I have worked with Gina for more than 30 years, and I am thrilled to announce her new role as COO at Hyve Solutions,” said Ichinaga. “She has played such an important role in each chapter of our company’s growth, solving problems and adding value to any project she’s a part of. Gina is a dynamic leader with a heart for what we do, and I couldn’t be happier to work alongside her as we head into our next phase of growth.”
“I’m very excited to expand my responsibilities as COO,” said Rugani. “Hyve Solutions is a transformative business that has made a tremendous impact in the tech industry, especially when it comes to hyperscale datacenters. I feel privileged to have seen this company evolve to what it is today, and I look forward to its bright future.”
