Azlan hits pause in top table's musical chairs
New bosses named
Azlan has confirmed its revamped management line-up that will lead the business from the start of next month.
The enterprise distie is overhauling the internal structure and making two senior managers redundant as it creates business units based on HP, IBM and Cisco rather than vertical technologies.
As a result, Mark Wheeler is to lead the Azlan Cisco business unit and Kevin Markwick is to head up the IBM team. The hunt for a director to run the HP biz continues.
Joel Chimoindes, former boss of Azlan's unified communications biz, has been charged with assembling "vendor agnostic solutions", the firm said. The remaining UC business, Cisco Telepresence, will fall under the remit of Wheeler as Azlan last month parted with Avaya.
An Azlan operating division will also be put together to include smaller or emerging networking and security vendors. The move apes business units set up at enterprise distributors Avnet Technology Solutions and Arrow ECS.
Former Bell Microproducts director Colin McGregor joined Azlan back in early summer to head up the business.
He said in a statement: "This new management structure will enable Azlan’s teams to focus more clearly and distinctly on key targets and to drive the business forward." ®
