Westcoast Group shuffles management deck

Industry vet Alex Tatham given keys to MD's office after Viglen/QC buys

Westcoast has rejigged its management team to accommodate an expanding waistline having swallowed Viglen and QC Supplies in this month alone.

Current UK and Ireland MD Duncan Forsyth has moved to a Group MD role overseeing Westcoast, XMA and new buys Viglen and consumables trader QC Supplies.

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. ®
