Exertis shuffles its management pack

The distributor has made a raft of changes to its management team to support its international ambitions

Exertis has shuffled its senior management pack across the UK and Europe as it looks to ensure it has the right staff in place to guide the distributor forward.

The channel player has introduced changes in response to the decision to hand Paul Bryan, UK managing director, with responsibility for the Irish business.

The move has meant that Rod McCarthy becomes head of Ireland with John Dunne being promoted to a new position of chief commercial officer, North America. Gerry O'Keeffe has been given an international role and will be looking at taking the business into fresh territories.

“These changes to our organisation reflect our evolving business and our strategic ambitions to expand geographically, leverage our capabilities across our territories and ensure we serve more customers with the products, solutions and services that enable them to grow," said Tim Griffin, DCC Technology and Exertis managing director.

"I am confident that with the depth of experience and talent of our leadership team, we are in a great position to continue our successful transition into a service led, value-added distributor that provides specialist expertise and support for customers across a diverse range of technologies,” he added.

There have been some further changes to the organisational chart in the UK and Ireland with Richard Hinds appointed to the new role of chief operating officer with responsibility for the finance, purchasing, IT, logistics and customer services functions. He was previously finance director for Exertis UK.

Mike Buley has been given the chance to impress as managing director of Exertis’ consumer division, building on a decade's worth’s of experience in that market.

Exertis has been actively growing the business with the most recent moves being into the electricals market, signing up the household brand of Hoover and last week added robotic vacuum cleaners from Blaupunkt to the portfolio.
