Channel roundup: Who’s gone where?

Another seven days that included some interesting personnel moves across the channel

Even with the summer slowdown starting to be felt, appointments across the industry have not slowed. Here are a few of note that have been made in the last week.


The managed service provider has appointed Howard Malloy as senior vice-president and managing director, Europe. He has been with the business for just under seven years, previously serving as global vice-president of client success and managing director for India.

“Howard is the perfect person to fill the European MD role,” said Ensono president Marc Capri. “He has a reputation for excellence at the company, bringing growth and positivity wherever he goes. With many sectors following consumer demand for a more flexible, personalised and tech-driven experience, I have no doubt that Howard will lead his team to meet the challenge ahead of us.”


The Yorkshire-based tech firm has cut the ribbon on a fresh office in Leeds, and its 50 staff will be joined by new head of commercial, Kevin McConnel.

Razor CEO Jamie Hinton was upbeat about the development, saying: “I’m super-charged that we’re opening our second office – working remotely has its place, but if we want to continue delivering game-changing results, we need to maintain our personal connections – seeing, inspiring, collaborating, challenging and bouncing ideas off each other in-person. Nothing comes close to the real thing.”


The software developer has appointed Ian Baldeosingh as vice-president of technology. He comes with a career that stretches over two decades and includes time at Telstra, Accenture and Ascent Media Group.

Tim Richards, CEO of Hoptroff, said: “Ian is a key hire for Hoptroff. We have huge growth plans in place and bringing him on board with his background in technology, media and broadcast is the perfect fit for our future growth plans. We created this role to help realise Hoptroff’s ambitions and take us forward into the future by ensuring that we maintain our culture of excellence and stay ahead of the curve with our product offerings. Ian’s skills and belief in what we do brings an exciting addition to the team.”


The video comms specialist has strengthened its EMEA team with the appointment of Wilfried Tollet as channel sales manager for DACH and and Didier Quantili as channel sales manager for FrISp (France, Italy, Spain).

Mark Mason, VP of sales, EMEA at Avocor, said: “As we grow our profile and continue to develop our EMEA sales team, we have had to be highly selective in our recruitment. With the addition of Wilf and Didier, we are in a great position to take our EMEA business to the next level. They tick all the right boxes and have a deep understanding of their regions, combined with the specialist market and product knowledge required for technical sales management. I am looking forward to working with them and extend a warm welcome to them both.”
