Enormo reseller SCC rejgs exec chairs for growth spurt

Three heads to rule sales, services and procurement

Specialist Computer Centres (SCC) has initiated a restructure to spearhead a four-year growth plan, say our sources in vendor land.

This follows a review by external consultants who were drafted in to help create the multi-year business plan, with more highly paid biz advisors believed to be coming in to help implement plans.

The services-based reselling powerhouse, which operates from an HQ in Birmingham, has tried to simplify its organisation by handing control of operations to three directors under the guidance of boss James Rigby.

Public sector director Tracy Westall has moved to run corporate services and marketing including vendor relations, change management programmes and procurement, vendor sources said.

Services director Mike Swain has added France to his UK responsibilities, while industry veteran John Bland has become UK MD for sales covering staff across the entire operations.

"The plan is that Westall's team buys the products, Bland sells them and Swain deploys services," said a source.

SCC turned in a decent set of fiscal '13 financials for the year to 31 March, with sales up 3.6 per cent to £665.3m. The services operation accounted for £114.5m of turnover.

A tax credit beefed up profits to £9.08m versus £6.9m in the previous fiscal twelve month period.

SCC was unavailable to comment at the time of writing, but El Chan has contacted the biz about the exec changes and the growth plan. ®
