In his new role, Grant will have primary responsibility for the continued growth and success of Westcon Group’s European business, including its European strategy, human resources and legal organisations.

“Westcon Group’s European business is developing in a very positive way,” commented Dean Douglas. “We are expanding into the Nordics, the Baltics and Southern Europe, and we continue to strengthen our vendor portfolio overall. With David’s leadership and experience, we are well positioned to further our success in Europe, which is a fundamental component in our broader growth strategy.”

Our strong relationships with key convergence vendors and a very skilled reseller community sets us apart from our competitors. We intend to drive a strategic plan and investment model that allows us to continue to maintain this competitive advantage.”
