Computacenter names Gooding to run UK networking unit

Microscope contributor

Computacenter has hired Logicalis sales director Duncan Gooding to push its networking business in the UK over the £100m milestone.

Current incumbent Ade Foxall is moving to a new role managing CC's Cisco UCS business across Europe - a new position that has been created for him.

"Our networking business has grown considerably over the last couple of years but we are continuing to strive to replicate the success that we've had in Germany in the UK," said Mike Norris, chief executive at Computacenter.

The business unit in the UK is approaching the £100m mark but Norris said "it still has some way to go" to match its counterparts in central Europe.

Tom Kelly, UK managing director at Logicalis, said that following the resignation of Gooding he had not sought an immediate replacement to build greater intimacy with the senior sales team.

The search is on, he added to find a head that understands the business issues that Logicalis and its customers are facing.

"No one in the current competitive landscape is capable of doing the job we need going forward with the solutions and positioning that we have in the market," he said.
