Memory Plus gets new head, plans online sales

MemCorp division prepares for next stage growth

Memory Corporation has appointed Jon Blows as general manager of its Swindon-based subsidiary, Memory Plus. Blows' job is to head up the division, which provides memory upgrades to resellers, and to develop the company's Internet business. He was previously MD at systems integrator Reflex. "Blows hopes to use his extensive knowledge of e-commerce to help Memory Plus assume a new identity within the industry," the company said. Sources close to the company have told The Register that at least one part of the business would start selling memory online in the new year. "Memory Plus has built a strong reputation in the memory business, however it needs to move on from its owner-managed stage and develop professional practices, reposition itself within the industry and spread its profile into new market areas," said Blows. "This is going to be done through a combination of strong management and improved use of new technologies in business practices." ® Related stories Memory Corp buys out Datrontech memory business Memory Corp turns last year's loss into Q2 profit Memcorp protects IP with acquisition of bust add-ons firm
