CDW has named its CEO, Thomas E. Richards, to the additional position of chairman of the CDW board, effective Jan. 1.
He succeeds John A. Edwardson, who is retiring at the end of the year.
Richards already succeeded Edwardson as CEO on Oct. 1, 2011, and has been a CDW board member since July 2011, the company said.
“The appointment of Tom Richards as chairman reflects his deep knowledge of CDW’s business and culture, and the high regard in which he is held by the board of directors,” said Barry K. Allen, lead director of the CDW board.
