Casualties of DSGi redundancies revealed

Details have started to surface about the extent of the casualties of the redundancies made by DSGi across its reseller arms.

In the summer, DSGi put around 60 staff on notice of redundancy as the bitter winds of the harsh economic climate blew through the channel and those included a number of directors and middle managers.

Microscope has learnt that Andy Walsh, southern sales director at Equanet has left the firm, along with Darren Headley, office manager at Microwarehouse in Borehamwood.

Departures from Bury HQ include group sales director Russell Flowers, head of services Andy Clark, solutions manager John Blanche, NHS sales manager Stuart Whitby and Jamie Whitworth and Bob Fricker who were northern and public sector business development managers respectively.

It has been a tough summer for DSGi in the retail space and a great number of business resellers have also warned of a slowdown in the commercial markets.

A spokesman for DSGi reckoned it continued to outperform the market and that it was striving to offer a better customer experience and improve costs, "this is particularly important in light of current economic conditions."

"As part of our cost reduction programme, we have regrettably made some 50 staff redundant and we have been giving those implicated in the process our full support," he said.
