Channel roundup: Who's gone where?

The channel never sleeps, even during a four day week, and there have been plenty of movement in personnel in the last few days

Even in a week that starts with a bank holiday the HR departments across the channel have been busy and several fresh chapters of careers have been started in the past few days.

The managed cloud service provider has appointed Neville Davis to a new position as non-executive chairman. The decision to bring on board Davis, who has over two decades as a chief executive, comes on the back of the move by investors Lyceum Capital to put £50m into the firmback in February. “Neville’s considerable experience in managed IT and more than 20 years as a successful CEO will be a real asset to Timico. I am looking forward to working closely with him to drive forward our Managed Cloud Service Provider (MCSP) strategy and to deliver real value to our clients as we support them on their digital transformation journey,” said Ben Marnham, CEO of Timico.

The rival to Oracle has appointed country managers in France, Spain and Portugal and the DACH region to support its expansion plans. The firm is also looking for up to 40 channel partners to also come on board to service those countries. Timothée Wirth will be running Framce, Italy and Belguim, Thomas Hellweg will handle DACH and Alvaro Ansaldo will cover Spain and Portugal. “It’s no coincidence that we’ve appointed proven senior sales and business development people to lead operations in these new markets,” said Joshua Yulish, CEO of TmaxSoft “Our new country managers have succeeded at some of the most respected companies in the industry and will help TmaxSoft continue to disrupt the status quo as we offer our more customer-friendly alternative to the global marketplace.”

The indentity management specialist has hired Eamonn Doyle who spent more than a decade as CEO and president of Bloxx. Doyle will take up a position of sales director with a brief to help extend the reach of the business. "My1Login is on a high growth path and I am delighted that Eamonn has joined our team as his experience and passion for developing sales team success will undoubtedly accelerate the company's expansion," said Mike Newman, CEO of My1Login.

The 4G LTE and hybrid networking distributor has bought James Smith on board as enterprise sales manager as it ramps up its focus on that end of the market. One of his first tasks will be to being on board some more resellers that can sell the Lancom Systems products and other enterprise networking products that the distie handles. " Our enterprise networking solutions are shifting up a gear as our key manufacturers start to introduce software-defined networking in place of traditional approaches. We will be working hard with our channel to make sure that they’re ready for this, and by having James on board I’m confident that we will be able to hit the ground running with these new solutions," said Sacha Kakad, managing director at Westbase Technology.
