Dimension Data has shuffled its senior management team unveiling a fresh face in the managing director chair as well as the solutions and sales director positions.

The firm has looked internally for its next managing director promoting Calvin Goom, who has been running things on an interim basis since Ton van Horssen stepped down in March, with a remit to deliver more growth and develop partner relationships.

Van Horssen agreed to step down earlier this year with the search for a replacement being kick started back then by European CEO Andrew Coulsen with it eventually settling on Goom, who has been running things for the last eight months.

Goom was not alone in getting a fresh remit with John Landolo being handed the role of sales director and Stafford Hunt, who has worked in the industry for 25 years including a stint as CTO for Energy and Utilities at T-Systems, becomes solutions director.

All of them have been tasked with driving the next stage of growth at the company and Coulsen said that getting the right people was "pivotal; to the management and success of our UK operation".
