Azlan rejigs senior European team

Goes after tasty SMB biz

IT disty Azlan confirmed today that it has restructured its European management team.

It said in a statement that Uwe Stein has taken on the newly-created role of director for the firm's European marketing division, while Ruediger Gunther steps into Stein's previous position as director of Azlan's European midrange systems and software unit.

Gunther previously managed Avnet's German division where he looked after IBM and HP business.

Stein will oversee marketing and communications across the whole region, said Azlan, as well as ensuring that individual operations make the most of vendor cash and Tech Data's resources to help plump up sales.

The firm also said it was keen to take a larger slice of the SMB pie.

Azlan was acquired by US-based IT distie giant Tech Data in 2003. ®
