Outgoing D-Link boss praised for reviving company fortunes

D-Link has bid farewell to its outgoing UK managing director, Chris Davies, who has left the firm after a four year stint at the wheel, during which he played a key role in reviving the fortunes of the firm's UK business.

"His role was very much a change management role, which he absolutely achieved. He delivered significant profit to the business," said marketing manager Andrew Mulholland. "I am very sorry to see him go."

Davies split with the SMB, SOHO and consumer networking specialist in mid-August, but D-Link has kept shtum up to now as it preps a series of tweaks to its reseller strategy.

The firm will look to ramp up its channel engagement and business growth in the wake of Davies' exit.

"The company has very ambitious growth plans, and our UK team still has the same remit. The only difference is we now report into the European senior management team," Mulholland added.

D-Link's London-based vice president of Europe, Stefano Nordio, has taken over responsibility for overall control of the firm in the UK, but the company would not be drawn on whether it intends to recruit a new UK boss.

Davies could not be reached for comment at the time of writing.
