Prior to joining Infinigate, Meloni was chairman of Capita Europe. His fresh role will handle the European strategy for the business.

“We welcome Marcus to the Infinigate family in what is a crucial role for our ongoing development as an EMEA-leading technology platform and trusted adviser for cyber security and cloud,” said Klaus Schlichtherle, CEO of the Infinigate Group.

“Marcus brings the skills, experience and passion to infuse our organisation with renewed energy and inspiration to continue on our growth trajectory to €5bn revenue by 2027, leveraging the cyber security market opportunities for the whole of the channel.”


The buying group has bolstered its team with the appointment of Anthony Hampson as account executive. He brings plenty of experience to the role, having spent seven years in sales and account management roles within the IT distribution sector.

Miguel Rodriguez, managing director of Synaxon Hub, said: ‘We’re delighted to welcome Anthony who will be a valuable addition to our enthusiastic UK team.
