Mr. Bozotti currently serves on the boards of Lumson, the Italian leader in the primary packaging cosmetics sector, and Besi, a leading supplier of assembly equipment for the global semiconductor and electronics industries.

"Carlo's depth of knowledge of the semiconductor and industrial electronics market, along with his expertise in identifying strategies for alliances and partnerships, particularly in the European electronics market, make him a valuable addition to the Avnet board," said Rodney C.

A native of Noviglio, near Milan, Italy, Mr. Bozotti holds a degree in electronic engineering from the University of Pavia, Italy, and was a member of the European Round Table of Industrialists advocacy group.

Adalio T. Sanchez is president of S Group Advisory LLC, and a 35-year technology industry veteran in the enterprise hardware, software and semiconductor segments. He was formerly senior vice president at Lenovo Group Limited, responsible for the company's enterprise systems, storage and data center technologies business.

Mr. Sanchez also serves on the boards of directors of ACI Worldwide Inc., a global software company facilitating real-time electronics payments where he chairs the Compensation Committee; and on the board of the MITRE Corporation, a firm that manages federally funded research and development centers supporting several U.S. government agencies.
