Network Computing Devices (NCD) has poached staff from its key rival Wyse as it attempts to double the size of its channel. The thin-client vendor has added five employees to its Windsor office in the UK. NCD currently has 30 UK resellers in its Diamond Partner programme and said the new personnel had been given the task of doubling this number by the end of 1999. Two new employees have come from thin client competitor Wyse Technology - Jon Starr is now NCD European distribution sales manager and Allan Tyrell is corporate accounts manager. Paul Robinson will join as UK senior technical sales engineer, coming from distributor Getech. A further two sales people will also join from the Network Displays unit of Tektronix, recently bought by NCD. Alan Grover - senior technical sales engineer and Tracey Neilson - UK Var manager. A representative of the California-based company said: "We want general and specialist resellers, but we are not looking for box-shifters." NCD distributes in the UK through Essex-based ADTCOM Network Computing, Chessington-based ilion and Matlock-based Sphinx CST. ®
