Broadline distributor Computer 2000 has announced a number of switches in management – including a new UK MD. Julian Klein has been promoted from commercial director and deputy MD to replace Graeme Watt as head of the company in the UK. Watt will take on the wider role of regional MD, with responsibility for Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden and the United Arab Emirates. Klein will still report to Watt in the UK. Klein took over from Andy Gass in January of this year – he had rejoined Computer 2000 the previous May after a two year absence from the company spent at Apple UK and Xerox. The company has not yet found a replacement commercial director. Other changes announced today include Alice Smitheman, who has been promoted to the board as director of Datech 2000 – the distributor's CAD division – and replaces Simon Weeks. Smitheman was previously general manager for PC Systems at Computer 2000. Gary Fowle has been poached from Sony to replace Smitheman, and Andrew Kelly is due to join the Basingstoke business as peripherals general manager from spare parts distributor EAD on May 2. ®
