Channel roundup: Who's gone where?

Another week of sunshine, another week of executive musical chairs in the channel. MicroScope brings you its weekly roundup of Who's Gone Where


Sipsynergy announced two new executive appointments, naming Steve Day as sales director and Ged Fitton as chief operating officer.

Day, who has held senior sales roles at Westcon and Inclarity, will be responsible for driving channel sales and partner recruitment.

“As a 100% channel business, I can’t wait to start engaging with partners to help them grow their businesses around hosted UC-as-a-service,” said Day. “To date the SMB market has been woefully underserved by large service providers. This presents a fantastic opportunity for our partners to move to an annuity based offering […] My goal is to actively recruit, grow and enable partners to take advantage of this growing market opportunity.”

Toby Gold, CEO of sipsynergy, commented: “Steve and Ged bring invaluable experience, expertise and knowledge to the company and I have no doubt they will both make significant contributions in driving the business forward as we execute our business plan and continue to grow at pace to take advantage of the huge market opportunity we see for both ourselves and our channel partners.” 

Logicalis Financial Services

Logicalis Financial Services has made three senior appointments in the UK, North America and Australia. The Group appointed Paul Tweehuysen as commercial director for the UK, Paul Christensen as director of North America and Mark Hegarty as director of Australia and New Zealand.

Jens Montanana, CEO of Datatec Group, the parent company of Logicalis and Logicalis Financial Services, said: “All of these appointments made valuable additions to the team as the business continues to develop its offering across the UK, North America, Australia and New Zealand. 

Tweehuysen will play a key role in working with the sales teams to develop and execute transactions. Previously, he was global engagement manager (EMEA) at Cisco Capital and leasing manager at Stanley Security Solutions. 

Christian Roelofs, managing director at Logicalis Financial Services, commented, “Paul T, Paul C and Mark bring a great deal of expertise and creativity to Logicalis Financial Services and are ideally suited to support the business in the next phase of its development.’

“With the expansion of our team we now have a foundation across our core geographies to provide Logicalis with unique financial solutions. By integrating the financial services offering with the customer offering from the outset we can provide a genuine competitive advantage.’  


Timico announced the appointment of Ben Marnham as its new CEO. Marnham takes over from founder, Tim Radford, who will become executive chairman.

Founder Tim Radford commented: “I am delighted Ben has taken up the challenge of leading the business into our next phase of growth and development.
