C2000 suffers Gass leak

Deputy MD exits stage left

Computer 2000 is losing its long-standing deputy MD Andy Gass to Sage Tetra. Gass will take up his role of MD for the software company by the end of February. This will mark the end of his seven-year stint at the Basingstoke distributor, where he has spent the last two years as second in command to MD Graeme Watt. The company did not reveal who would replace Gass, but said it expected the position to be filled internally. Watt said: "We are very sad to see Andy go, he has been a key member of our management team and made a magnificent contribution to our success over the past seven years." Watt also hinted that there would be more changes in the upper ranks of the distributor. "Andy's decision comes at a time when we have been looking at our senior management structures with a view to preparing the company for the expected growth and new initiatives planned over the next couple of years," he said. Gass originally joined the group as financial controller of distributor Datech. In 1995 he became financial and operations director of Computer 2000 before his appointment as deputy MD in 1997. ® See also: C2000 sees Web sales triple
