Serial entrepreneur Alan Watkins, who took control of Microsoft LAR Teksys in January 2008, is to leave the company to concentrate on his private equity venture, Blackhawk Investments, as the integration of Teksys by Dimension Data wraps up.
Watkins' business partner, Teksys finance director Kevin Lewis, who came on board at the same time as Watkins, is also to make his exit.
"We have worked steadily to grow the business. This process was accelerated by becoming part of the Dimension Data group, and we have been delighted with the support that we have received," Watkins reflected.
He added: "Our job is now completed and it is time for Kevin and I to move onto the next challenge with Blackhawk."
The investment vehicle focuses primarily on undervalued assets and is expected to remain active in the channel.
