Orrin H. Ingram, President and Chief Executive Officer, commended Ms. McDonald’s accomplishments during her tenure at Ingram and added, “Eleanor is the right person at the right time to lead our legal efforts at Ingram and has exhibited the type of tested, collegial leadership which will make her a valuable and integral part of the senior team.”

Mr. Ingram thanked Mr. Morelli for his long service and extraordinary contributions to the Company and to the Ingram family. Mr. Ingram said, “Bill has provided exceptional legal counsel and trusted leadership during his tenure at Ingram.  While we will miss his presence on a daily basis, we’re pleased that he has agreed to serve in a new part-time role as Senior Advisor, where he will continue to be available to assist our family on a variety of matters.”
 

Mr. Morelli joined Ingram Barge Company in 1991 as General Counsel and progressed over the next several years in various executive positions at the Barge Company until he was named Vice President and General Counsel of the parent company, Ingram Industries Inc. in 1996. In 2003 he was named Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary.
