Exclusive Networks has made two senior sales appointments as it gears up for growth in 2017.

Richard Carpenter, who has held a number of senior roles within distribution, has been appointed Sales Director, and Lee Widdowson, highly experienced in distribution sales and account management, has joined the Chesterfield office as Divisional Sales Manager. Richard will be reporting directly to MD Graham Jones and will direct the team in deepening its relationships with existing partners and bringing Exclusive Networks’ security solutions, services and support to new partners. Lee’s role is focused on servicing and growing the partner base, especially SMB VARs, throughout the UK.

Graham Jones, Managing Director, commented “Our successful strategy of working in partnership with our vendors and partners has fueled our growth to date and these appointments signal our intent to continue this as we aim to break the £200M mark in 2017. As we look to become sole distributor with more vendors, we require new people who bring new ideas and methods. With Richard and Lee’s experience and the Exclusive Networks environment, we have a winning combination.”

Richard adds “The quality of vendors and technologies Exclusive Networks works with and the exceptional levels of service and support delivered to partners is well known and the envy of many distributors. As the pace of change in the security market increases it’s a great time to join the team and work with partners to deliver better, more comprehensive security solutions that enable customers to meet the complex and ever-changing security challenges they’re faced with.”
