Letter from the Chairman

Tech Data pursues the highest standards of excellence in all areas of our business and takes pride in the quality of the solutions and services we deliver to our vendors, customers and other business partners. Our company is also committed to the financial leadership and fiscal responsibility we maintain on behalf of our shareholders. As one of Fortune’s “World’s Most Admired Companies,” we also value our good reputation—which is critical to our success.

Both within Tech Data and in our business communities, the relationships we have built with all of our stakeholders are based on trust—and by extension, on our commitment to our Company’s shared values. Integrity and respect are at the forefront of our values, serving as the foundation for everything we do and how we treat each other, allowing us to build trust with our stakeholders every day.

Every member of the Tech Data team is personally responsible for conducting business in a legal and ethical manner. While the right choice may not always be the easiest or the quickest, making the right choices is always in the best interest of Tech Data, our business partners, our employees and our shareholders. Our commitment to our stakeholders and to each other does not stop at legal compliance—Tech Data is committed to doing what is right.

Sincerely,

Robert M. Dutkowsky
Executive Chairman

The code connects us all

Tech Data's Global Code of Conduct provides a clear set of ethical and legal standards by which we do business. Our Code summarizes key elements of Company policies designed to ensure lawful and ethical conduct, and clearly sets the expectations for our job-related activities. Although the Code is our guide for appropriate conduct and is a resource to help you make the right decisions, it is not a substitute for exercising good judgment. When in doubt or when something does not seem right, you are expected to speak up and consult with your manager or with one of the other resources mentioned in this Code.

Questions? Concerns?

Tech Data relies on your input to improve processes and solve problems quickly. You are encouraged to speak up when you need guidance, as well as when you see—or suspect—ethical or legal misconduct. The following resources are available to you when you have questions or concerns:

  • Your manager or any other member of management
  • An Ethics Advisor in your location
  • Human Resources
  • The Ethics and Compliance Organization
  • The Legal Department

Tech Data will promptly respond to concerns, thoroughly and fairly investigate all good faith reports and take appropriate action when necessary. You are in turn expected to participate in an investigation when asked. Every effort will be made to safeguard your privacy both during and after the investigation.

If you wish to report anonymously, you can do so through our Ethics Line, if anonymous reporting is allowed by the laws in your location. Keep in mind, however, that remaining anonymous may hinder Tech Data's ability to resolve your concerns if the investigator is unable to contact you for further information.
