Exertis makes group leadership changes

Exertis has changed its group leadership structure to reflect its increasing global operations, and to "better support its core business functions".

Neal Johnston has become global operations managing director in an expanded role that includes responsibility for international sales and fulfilment, supply chain managed services, global procurement, voice of the customer, own brand development, and global vendor management for the Pro AV, gaming and enterprise categories. He was previously Exertis managing director of supply chain services.

Rod McCarthy takes on the additional role of managing director for the services business in the UK and Ireland, with a remit to expand those capabilities on a global basis. The role will focus on delivering remote support and management, configuration and deployment, and lifecycle management for customers. 

McCarthy will continue to lead the Exertis business in Ireland reporting to Paul Bryan, Exertis UK&I managing director.

In addition, it has made three executive appointments and promotions in key functional areas of its business

Jason Chibnall has become chief information officer, Fiona Graham is chief marketing officer and Alan Lynch is now global logistics director. All three report to Tim Griffin (pictured), DCC Technology managing director. DCC is Exertis' parent company.

Griffin said: “These appointments reflect the evolution of our business as we continue to increase our global presence, and will enable the organisation to leverage its scale whilst expanding our capabilities to more customers in more countries." Exertis claims more than 50,000 reseller and retailer customers in Europe and across the world.
