Synaxon UK has added two new members to its team, in a bid to strengthen its Channel presence.
Channel stalwart Luke Steel comes in as the dealer services group's new Vendor Channel manager, while Chris Yule assumes the post of internal sales executive having made the switch from VIP Computers. Steel brings more than two decades worth of experience with him, 17 years of which he spent at the now-defunct distributor Entatech. During his time with Entatech, Steel was responsible for networking, comms and surveillance business and was latterly as leader of the Corporate Team.
Luke Steel said: "I've now been in the industry for 20 years and I've met some great characters along the way. I pride myself on delivering great service and helping customers to achieve new business goals. I now have the chance to do that at a much more personal level – with resellers, distributors and vendors – by joining the Synaxon UK team."
Yule is not quite as long in the tooth, but after two years working as a sales account manager at VIP, he has already established himself in the Channel. Chris Yule added: “After gaining initial experience by completing an apprenticeship at VIP, I knew a career in sales was for me as I loved interacting with customers. I have been studying for my sales qualifications and I’m really looking forward to working for Synaxon UK and adding to my skills within an established business.”
Welcoming them to the business, UK Channel director, Mike Barron, said he was looking forwards to having both new additions on board. “We’re delighted to have added these two experienced and talented individuals to our growing team,” he said. “It’s great news for members and partners as it means we can give them even more support and assistance in achieving their goals.”
