Agilitas continues to attract channel talent with Kelly appointment

Inventory management specialist Agilitas has revealed that former Logicalis staffer Tom Kelly has become chairman

Inventory management specialist Agilitas continues to bolster its management team by bringing on board personnel with a strong background in the channel.

Last month the firm recruited Richard Eglon as marketing director, bringing on board the former Comms-care staffer, with responsibility for pushing the brand forward.

It has now followed that move by appointing former Logicalis senior staffer Tom Kelly as chairman to work closely with the CEO Shaun Lynn and help support the firm's growth plans.

“Agilitas are delighted to have a Chairman with the pedigree and calibre that Tom has. We have very ambitious growth plans and to have someone who has been there and done it to the extent Tom has is great news for both Agilitas and our customers.  Tom has a first class reputation and an impeccable track record in the industry and I look forward to continue working closely with him as we look to expand our services proposition," said Lynch.

Kelly said that one of his tasks would be to get more people to understand about Agilitas and the potential that the firm had to make a major impression on the inventory management market.

"Agilitas is the IT industry’s best kept secret and part of my role as Chairman is to maximise the relationships I have built up over the years by introducing Agilitas to those people I know can benefit from their best of breed services.  What I’ve learnt over the years is people buy from people regardless of the industry you are in," he added.

Kelly has a detailed knowledge of the operation after he was involved helping Lynn lead an MBO earlier this year and comes into the firm at a point where it is looking to gain even more market share.

"Cloud services are fast becoming a huge enabler of change within the IT channel as the major vendors, distributors and resellers jostle for market share.  Agilitas is ideally positioned to support this change, as the consolidation of services to the Cloud also drives a bigger demand for organisations to centralise their spares inventory," he said.
