In turn sales and marketing director and popular industry veteran Alex Tatham has replaced Forsyth, and picked up the keys to the MD's office. National sales manager Gary Cove is now sales overlord director.
And three commercial managers - Paul Hamilton (client), Paul Harman (solutions & software) and Neil Baker (supplies) - have become category directors that have wider group responsibilities.
The deal with Viglen, revealed in November, was sealed this month and the firm will integrate with Westcoast Holdings-owned reseller XMA. An agreement with QC Supplies was also being completed this week.
Tatham told us that the management moves were in line with "expansion plans" across the group. ®
