Westcon names vice president of services for EMEA

Feb 08, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Westcon Group, a distributor of unified communications, network infrastructure, data center and security solutions, has appointed Chris Ranger as vice president of services for EMEA.

Ranger brings to Westcon more than 25 years of experience in executive service leadership across high technology industries. Formerly with Intermec Technologies, he led transformation of the company's services business from an in-house repair operation to outsourced model. He was directly responsible for building Intermec's profitable services business in EMEA with a core focus on partner strategies and consistency, the company said.

In his new role, Ranger is responsible for services across the unified communications, network infrastructure and security business practices. He is tasked with formalizing the company's services model and execution including training, post-sales support and technical audit services.

"We're well aware that partner success is based on much more than a strong vendor portfolio. Partners require a distributor with varied services that support their offerings," said Jeremy Butt, Westcon Executive vice president of EMEA. "Chris will be instrumental to helping us broaden and further evolve our services strategy in EMEA." Andreas Dohmen, Comstor Executive vice president of EMEA, said: "While typically a strength for Westcon, changing market dynamics mandates we adapt and grow our services model. With deep expertise leading some of the market's best global services strategies, Chris is the perfect fit to make this happen." "Westcon offers one of the strongest vendor portfolios in specialty distribution. But a strategic partner must also go the extra mile in terms of capabilities that augment our partners' services," said Chris Ranger, Westcon vice president of Services in EMEA. "My track-record in designing and executing a broad range of services strategies will help Westcon take its leadership reputation to the next level." http://www.datamonitor.com Republication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.
