Simms scalps second Renaissance head

23 Aug 10

Simms International has appointed Samuel Taylor as Business Development Manager, Peripherals, who will start September 6th.

The newly created role will be focused on developing vendor and reseller channel relationships for peripherals sales in New Zealand.

Taylor comes to the Simms role from Renaissance, where he was Product Specialist, Peripherals.

Recent addition (also from Renaissance), International General Manager, Peripherals, Michele Harrington, said, “It’s great to see a distributor with a total focus on doing business through the reseller channel. I am looking forward to working with the Simms team in bringing new products to market”.

Last Friday Renaissance announced that long time staffer Bronwyn Sinclair would be departing the company. We’re also hearing reports that a number of other people have also recently resigned from the distributor.

The Channel has contacted Renaissance for confirmation.
