Computer 2000 credit and customer services director Nick Tiltman is leaving the company to set up a consultancy practise, after more than 17 years at the distributor.
At the same time, long serving credit control manager Becky Parry is also due to exit the company and will quite literally be sailing off into the sun set with a round the world boat trip planned.
Talking to MicroScope, C2000 managing director Andy Gass confirmed that Tiltman will exit the business mid-November.
“Nick’s spent a long time in distribution and he is ready to try something new, he is looking for new challenges, more on a consultancy/advisory basis,” he said.
“We have a strong assessment function and Phil James,finance director, who previously ran credit will take over on an interim basis,obviously we are looking to rebuild the team but there is no reason to panic,” added Gass.
Tiltman joined the Basingstoke-based distributor in 1992 as general manager for credit services and moved through the ranks to join parent Tech Data in the noughties.
He returned to C2000 nearly two years ago following the departure of Martin Jeffrey - amid suggestions that bad debts at the distributor has risen - and became the first credit boss in distribution to take a seat on the board.
Credit and risk consultancy European Plus has been established by Tiltman to offer advice to companies in the channel and outside of the IT industry.
“Credit touches every part of a business and the experience I gained on the board during the last two years at C2000 has helped to build my commercial experience,” he said.
