Former VIP Computers director Dave Stevinson has been appointed commercial director at Entatech UK, following the departure of Jon Atherton.
Stevinson will return to the tech channel and join the distributor on Monday March 9th, where he will take on the role of commercial director.
In a statement sent to PCR, Entatech said: "A familiar name to many within the technology channel, Dave has extensive experience and is no stranger to Entatech.
"Dave has enjoyed a successful career in an enterprise performance management consultancy. With over 20 years’ experience of establishing, developing and reinvigorating UK and European channels for large global manufacturers, vendors and distributors, Dave brings a strong understanding of the UK channel and technology landscape.
"Entatech are delighted to benefit from Dave’s experience, and look forward with renewed optimism to continued growth within the channel."
Stevinson has worked at various firms including CTX Europe, TECO, PGE, Edge10 and VIP Computers. He worked at the latter as sales and marketing director for two years between 2010 and 2012, before leaving VIP to set up his own business intelligence and analytics firm GNR.
Stevinson told PCR that GNR will continue to be led by his business partners going forwards.
He said: "I’m very excited to be joining Entatech. Obviously it’s a great opportunity and I look forward to doing a great job there.
"The last sort of two years or so, I’ve been working with 50 or 60 companies with a variety of problems and a variety of systems, so I can conduct a diagnosis with Enta, look at what where we’re doing well and what areas we can improve."
He also said it wouldn’t be weird working for Entatech having held a position in the past at rival VIP, and added that he ‘wouldn’t miss next week’s PCR Awards 2015 for the world’. However, he has had to retire from playing tennis.
Entatech commented on Jon Atherton leaving the firm after 22 years.
"Entatech UK Ltd are sorry to announce they will be parting company with commercial director Jon Atherton on Friday March 6th. Jon has resigned his position with the company after 22 years, and will be taking time to pursue other interests," the firm said in a statement.
"After a such a long and successful relationship, Jon will be missed by the Entatech team, and we wish him well for the future."
