C2000 promotes Aldous to run volume marketing

In re-org's wake

Computer 2000 has promoted Simon Aldous to run the distie’s volume business.

This is a new position created in the wake of last week’s re-org, which saw the Tech Data-owned distie wave goodbye to 60 staff. The re-jig reflects the firm’s increasing emphasis on SME resellers, C2000 boss Steve Lockie says.

Dell is gobbling up market share in the corporate market, and other vendors are dealing directly with customers. This means that sales volumes through the big corporate resellers are declining, Lockie told Microscope.

Aldous joined C2000 this year to run the firms Datech CAD wholesaling division. Prior to this, he ran Toshiba UK’s indirect channels for four years, and worked at Ingram Micro for 11 years. ®
