Tiny Computers has given Andrew Walwyn, ex-MD of mobile phone retailer DX Communications, the job of MD.

Walwyn is going to take over from Jon Gilbert-Harris who's been with Tiny since 1981. Gilbert-Harris is staying on with Tiny to do some strategy stuff, but is also going to spend the next six months handing over to his successor.

Though his background is in the mobile phone biz Walwyn said he was taken on for his retail skills. He doesn't foresee Tiny going straight into the mobile phone market like rival Time with its TimeTalk outlets.

He thought Time hadn't made a total success of the business and felt there was a lot of competition in the phone market. "If we are going to go into it we've got to be special," he said.

Walwyn said he would announce what new products Tiny will start selling within the next six weeks. ®
