Distributor steps up the pace to win more cybersecurity service revenues
Exclusive Group has appointed David Ellis as group director of global services. He will use his experience in supporting new and disruptive technologies to roll out new service offerings for the cybersecurity market.
“David brings with him a wealth of experience and a track-record of success,” said Barrie Desmond (pictured), COO of Exclusive Group. “Services have always been at the heart of our value-add and are embedded in our DNA. Increasingly we’re seeing more and more global deals and our ability to support these will add even more value to both our vendor and channel partners alike.”
“Over recent years Exclusive Group has built an enviable reputation for disrupting traditional value-add distribution and I’m really excited to now be part of this,” said Ellis. “In my time within the industry I’ve identified and brought to market a number of new technologies and services, and have seen the cybersecurity market evolve at breakneck speed.
“I can’t wait to start helping our vendor and channel partners achieve even more value from their relationship with Exclusive Group through new global service offerings.”
He joins Exclusive Group from Arrow ECS, where he was part of the senior leadership team in EMEA responsible for vendor business development and the roll-out of new offerings. Before this, he was director of new technology and services at Computerlinks before its acquisition by Arrow.
