The channel will become a slightly less colourful place after it emerged that former Repton managing director Greg Carlow is stepping back from day-to-day operations at Kelway, although he will continue to act as a consultant.
At the same time it has emerged that two other former Repton directors that transferred to Kelway last year when it acquired the fellow London-based reseller are also heading for the exit door.
"When we acquired Repton last year the directors of the business agreed to stay on until it had been integrated into Kelway, and we closed the financial year," said chief executive Phil Doye.
These "milestones" were now completed, he told MicroScope, and as a result sales director Damon Dance and head of sales operations Kristin Warrior will be leaving.
"Greg Carlow, although officially retired, will continue to assist us in a consultative role. These changes were planned," said Doye.
A career in IT beckoned in 1976 when Carlow joined Digital Equipment Corporation as northern European CS marketing manager. In the late eighties he became sales director at ESS Systems before setting up Repton in 1990.
Carlow said the integration had been relatively painless, and he planned to provide consultancy services which could see him in the office five days a week or two days a month depending on the requirements.
"Things will just gently wind down", he said.
