Tech Data Corp. has named two new senior finance leaders effective early June 2015.

Joseph Trepani has been named senior vice president and chief financial officer, the Americas. In his new role, Trepani will be responsible for the company’s finance, accounting and credit functions in the United States, Canada, and Latin America.  Before joining the company in 1990, Trepani worked at Price Waterhouse.

Jeffrey Taylor has been named senior vice president and corporate controller.
