CDW Names David W. Nelms Non-Executive Chairman of the Board

CDW Corporation (Nasdaq: CDW), a leading multi-brand technology solutions provider to business, government, education and healthcare customers, today announced that David W. Nelms will become non-executive chairman of the board, effective January 1, 2020. He will succeed Thomas E. Richards, executive chairman, who will retire from the board as of December 31, 2019. This chairman succession is the culmination of a leadership transition that began several years ago.

“David has been a valued board member for the past six years, and our entire board is pleased that he has accepted this additional leadership role and special responsibility to contribute to and serve CDW in this capacity,” said Christine A. Leahy, chief executive officer, CDW. “I look forward to working with David and our full board as CDW continues to execute our growth strategy.”

Leahy also recognized the special role that Tom Richards has had in CDW’s success: “I am proud and privileged, on behalf of our Board of Directors and more than 9,800 coworkers and all CDW stakeholders, to thank Tom for his decade of exceptional contribution and service. Tom reminded us daily of our opportunity and responsibility to ‘make a difference,’ and Tom most surely did so. His exceptional legacy will carry on in countless ways.”

“I am honored to serve as the next chairman for a company with such a rich history and bright future,” Nelms said. “I want to personally thank Tom for the excellent stewardship he has provided as chairman and for his outstanding leadership over a decade of service to CDW.”
