Distribution Central appoints new NZ manager

16 Nov 11

Australia-based Distribution Central has hired former Ingram Micro market development manager Stewart Williams to lead its New Zealand team as territory sales manager.

Williams has more than 15 years in the New Zealand tech sector. He came to Ingram Micro via its purchase of Value Added Distributors in 2009, and before that held positions with IBM NZ and Acer.

Nick Verykios, managing director of Distribution Central, says the appointment comes at a time of growth, with the company looking after 15 vendors, and with new partnerships still to come. 

"Stewart’s first task will be to hire two new people, an engineer and a Wellington account manager, to help support our growth in New Zealand,” Verykios says.

Distribution Central’s brands include Avaya, Extreme Networks, Riverbed, and Xirrus.
