End of the Month – All Change

2007 is barely a month old and already the phones are buzzing with personnel changes.

Comms Business Magazine has heard that both Mark Ivens and Roger James have left Panasonic.

Ivens was channel marketing manager whilst James the Panasonic channel sales chief.

James, who many will recall joined Panasonic from Ericsson, is believed to be joining Samsung.

Samsung themselves have suffered a series of departures in recent months and have been without a UK channel sales manager for some time following the departure of Julian Barnes and will no doubt be pleased to have landed the experienced James.
