Pegasus Software has promoted Kevin McCallum to channel sales director for the UK and Ireland. McCallum joined the accountancy software vendor in 2001 and most recently ran its product specialist team. Pegasus is part of Systems Union.


Horizon Technology, the Irish-owned mid-range reseller, has become an IBM Business Partner in the UK
