Azlan cuddles up to vendors after restructure
Enterprise networking distie Azlan has announced an imminent restructure to bring itself more closely into line with its European business, as well as bring it closer to its key vendor partners.
The disclosure comes in the wake of the departure of senior execs Simon Welch and Mark Walker last week. It is understood that both roles, which focused on multiple vendors, were deemed redundant following the review of the business.
Azlan UK director Colin McGregor said the new structure would enable a clearer, more distinct focus on key targets.
"[It will] drive the business forward in close alignment with our colleagues in Europe, sharing best practice and ensuring that we deliver positive results for our customers, vendor partners and our own business," said McGregor.
"Azlan has made great strides in recent months and ... I am confident that we can continue to build on that momentum," he added.
As part of the restructure, which will take effect on 1 December, the firm has made a series of management changes.
Azlan Cisco business unit manager Mark Wheeler has been promoted to business unit director, with full responsibility for the Cisco business.
Meanwhile, Kevin Marwick, formerly director of IBM, adds responsibility for the Services business unit to his portfolio, and former UC director Joel Chimoindes becomes solution evangelist director, with responsibility for overseeing the development of vendor-agnostic solution packages.
