Renaissance loses two more

11 Aug 2010

The Channel has received word that the Onehunga-based distributor, Renaissance, is in the process of seeing off another two employees.

We reported recently that Janet Bailey, best known as Channel Manager for the Apple dealers though she later moved into a more customer service focused role, would leave the company officially on July 21st. The Channel understands that Bailey has now started Apple reseller, Imagetext.

Chris Parnell, General Manager, Enterprise at Renaissance, is also on his way to Imagetext.

Meanwhile, Michele Harrington, General Manager Peripherals at Renaissance, is making a move to Dell distributor, Simms.

In a recent statement about Renaissance picking up five new brands in three months, Harrington was quoted as saying, “We are committed to extending our range of accessories that perfectly complement the undeniable style of Apple’s products to ensure customers get the most from their favourite Apple device.”

Renaissance has not returned The Channel’s calls for comment at time of writing.

Update: Renaissance has confirmed that Chris Parnell and Michele Harrington have left the company and that replacements are currently being sought.
