Distribution Central boss headed for NZ

26 Apr 12

Distribution Central managing director Nick Verykios will visit New Zealand next month, along with other senior members of the company’s management team, to address a function for reseller and vendor partners.

To be held in Auckland on May 10, the event will see Sydney-based Verykios updating Distribution Central’s partners on the company’s channel enablement services, systems, and most recent vendor partnerships, as well as its strategy for New Zealand as part of its overall vision.

"It has been a busy start to the year at DC,” Verykios says, "with several new vendor partnerships announced recently and the move to our new office premises at Viaduct Harbour.”

Just last week Distribution Central announced new partnerships with Quantum and Syncsort.

"It’s an ideal time to remind the New Zealand channel of our channel enablement services and vendor portfolio, but also to meet with our NZ partners to discuss their needs and requirements.”

Distribution Central is currently looking for a Wellington-based account manager to establish a branch in the Capital, to add to the three recent hires they have made at their Auckland office.

The partner event will take place at SnapDragon in the Viaduct Harbour from 5pm – go here to register.
