C2000 loses Web manager to London dotcom

Waves goodbye to Basingstoke...

Computer 2000 this week saw its general manager for e-commerce and marketing scooped by a dotcom.

Andy Dow has quit after five years at the Basingstoke distributor. From today he will be sales and marketing director at London-based Web hosting and services company Corpex.

Computer 2000 will not replace Dow, but has decided to split his job between Nigel Judd, general manager for marketing, and Christopher Miles, general manager for e-commerce.



In channel-related news, Surrey-based reseller Rapid Group has promoted Graham Perry to MD.



Perry joined the company in 1997 and was behind the buyout of Thames Valley Systems the following year. He has replaced John McCartney, now chairman of Rapid, and said he would look for more acquisitions "to grow the company and broaden our geographical coverage even further".



Infobank also announced a new UK MD today - James Kirkwood has joined from Korean chipmaker LG Group. ®
