Westcon Europe group executive vice president Barry Shakespeare and European financial director Jon Toohey have resigned, the distributor has announced.

Toohey is to be replaced by UK finance director Richard Hodgetts, who has been with the firm since 2004 and among other things, spearheaded Westcon's recent growth in the UK and oversaw the consolidation of Westcon and Comstor's back office functions.

Group CFO John O'Malley said: "Richard brings deep relationships with both customers and vendors alike to his new role. [He] will help Westcon scale opportunities for our European customers and help expand our presence as we look toward growth in other European geographies."

Westcon has not yet named a replacement for Shakespeare, who will formally leave the company at the end of January.

Neither man has yet given any indication of their next move, or whether they will remain in the channel.
