Leigh Howard has been named Managing Director for Australia, while Wendy O'Keeffe continues to serve as Executive Vice President for the Asia Pacific region.

Howard is now responsible for expanding and driving the company’s key technology practices of convergence, networking, storage and security in line with building the company’s core vendor business.  

O’Keeffe explained, “Leigh has been with Westcon Group for 13 years working in Australia, New Zealand and the UK. Westcon Group Australia has more than tripled its revenues in the past seven years since Leigh joined as national sales manager in 2002 and his significant contribution has greatly assisted in our growth."

Howard added, “I want Westcon to continue to be a great business partner, to be easy to work with and to consistently delight our customers and vendors.”

Last week The Channel caught up with President and CEO of Westcon Group, Dean Douglas, who told us about the company’s plans to make Datastor the number one distributor in New Zealand.
