Exertis has announced further changes to its Group structure to “take advantage of the opportunities provided by the organisation’s increasing global operations and to support its core business functions, internationally”.
Jason Chibnall has been named chief information officer, Fiona Graham becomes chief marketing officer, and Alan Lynch takes on the role of global logistics director.
All three are global roles, reporting into Tim Griffin, DCC Technology managing director.
“These appointments reflect the evolution of our business as we continue to grow our operations into new geographies and provide our partners and customers with increasing opportunities to transact with us on a global basis,” said Griffin. “I am especially delighted to make these appointments internally, reflecting our policy of promoting career development within Exertis. All three have already made significant contributions in their former roles and richly deserve the opportunity to expand their responsibilities.”
Chibnall joined Exertis in 2005 and steps up from his position of IT director for the UK and Ireland. Graham has been UK marketing director at the company for almost five years having previously enjoyed spells at Microsoft and Tech Data. Lynch is also a long serving Exertis employee, having first joined Exertis Gem in 2004 and since becoming Exertis operations director.
In addition to this, Neal Johnston becomes managing director of Exertis global operations in an expanded role that includes responsibility for international sales and fulfilment, supply chain managed services, global procurement, voice of the customer, own brand development and global vendor management for the Pro AV, gaming and enterprise categories.
Reporting to Griffin, Johnston takes on the role with immediate effect having previously been the managing director for Exertis supply chain services for the past three and a half years.
Exertis has also announced the appointment of Rod McCarthy to head up its services business in the UK and Ireland and expand those capabilities on a global basis.
In this role, focused on remote support and management, configuration and deployment, and lifecycle management, McCarthy will report to Griffin. McCarthy will also continue to lead the Exertis business in Ireland, reporting to Paul Bryan, Exertis UK&I managing director.
