In 2013, Arrow Electronics launched its first formal marketing program with its new brand platform, Five Years Out. The focus on this initiative, according to Tim Kolbus, vice president of global logistics services, was to "crystallize" Arrow's role as more than just a mover of product around the globe.

Over the past few years, the company has turned much of its focus toward providing services to customers related to end-of-life concerns for electronics products, including concerns around environmental impact and data security. Arrow has completed seven acquisitions in North America over the last couple of years to directly address these challenges.
