Graeme Watt has been promoted in a senior reshuffle at Avnet which sees the channel veteran extend his role at the distributor beyond its Technology Solutions operation.

Watt, who has been president of Avnet Technology Solutions EMEA and maintains that role has also been elected at the corporate vice president for Avnet Inc.

Watt was not the only change to be announced at the distributor with chief information officer Steve Phillips promoted to a corporate officer position of senior vice president for Avnet.

"These promotions reflect the substantial contributions each of these executives has made to the success of Avnet, our customers, suppliers, employees and shareholders," said Rick Hamada, CEO of the distributor.

Watt has been with the distributor since July 2010 when it bought Bell Microproducts and he was tasked with merging the operations across Europe.

In his time at the company he has helped with several acquisitions and masterminded a restructure at the technology solutions operation.
