Tech Data changes its European organisation
Tech Data Europe has unveiled changes to its European organisation which will enable it to optimise its efficiency whilst enhancing the support for its country operations. As a result of its acquisition strategy in Europe and the diversification of its distribution business, a new European Executive Board (EEB) has been formed to represent the company's technology areas and country and business operations. The EEB will drive the strategic direction of the company's European operations and ensure it takes advantage of the growth opportunities that exist in both its traditional IT business, its specialist divisions and its services. In addition, to provide greater focus and consistency in execution, the European country operations have been divided between two Regional Senior Vice Presidents. One will be led by Andy Gass who will be responsible for the following country operations: Belgium & Luxembourg, France, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom. The other will be led by Jonas Elmgren who will have responsibility for Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Sweden and Switzerland. Both Regional Senior Vice Presidents will report into Néstor Cano, President, Europe. "The formation of an EEB and two regional operations will enable the company to be even more efficient and agile in its decision making at a strategic level, while allowing us to benefit from the strength and experience of country managers in their own markets," said Néstor Cano, President, Europe. "These changes are consistent with our major business goals and provide our country operations with the opportunity to take full advantage of the technology areas in which we operate, utilising our existing pan-European infrastructure and resources, whilst they focus on excellence in execution in sales and marketing to develop and grow our business."
The EEB members are:
- Néstor Cano, President, Europe
- Alain Amsellem, Senior Vice President, Finance & Business Operations
- Andy Gass, Regional Senior Vice President
- Henk Makaske, Senior Vice President, Triade (Consumer Electronics)
- Jonas Elmgren, Regional Senior Vice President
- Nimesh Davé, Senior Vice President Broadline & Processes
- Rod Millar, President Brightstar Tech Data (Mobility)
- Simon England, Senior Vice President, Value Added Business, responsible for Azlan (Enterprise), Datech (Design Software) and Maverick (Professional Audio Visual)
