Computer 2000 credit and customer services director NickTiltman is leaving the company to set up a consultancy practise, after morethan 17 years at the distributor.
At the same time, long serving credit control manager BeckyParry is also due to exit the company and will quite literally be sailing offinto the sun set with a round the world boat trip planned.
Talking to MicroScope, C2000 managing director Andy Gass confirmedthat Tiltman will exit the business mid-November.
“Nick’s spent a long time in distribution and he is ready totry something new, he is looking for new challenges, more on a consultancy/advisory basis,” he said.
“We have a strong assessment function and Phil James,finance director, who previously ran credit will take over on an interim basis,obviously we are looking to rebuild the team but there is no reason to panic,”added Gass.
Tiltman joined the Basingstoke-based distributor in 1992 asgeneral manager for credit services and moved through the ranks to join parentTech Data in the noughties.
He returned to C2000 nearly two years ago following thedeparture of Martin Jeffrey - amid suggestions that bad debts at thedistributor has risen - and became the first credit boss in distribution totake a seat on the board.
Credit and risk consultancy European Plus has beenestablished by Tiltman to offer advice to companies in the channel and outsideof the IT industry.
“Credit touches every part of a business and the experienceI gained on the board during the last two years at C2000 has helped to build mycommercial experience,” he said.
