Networking distributor Westcon has appointed Peter Williams as its general manager to head up its operations in Australia.
Williams comes from Canon, where he was state manager responsible for business-to-business sales of copiers, scanners, faxes and document management software.
He has also worked for IBM and Informix, as well as reseller operations JBA and CSSL.
Williams said one of his primary goals as general manager of Westcon was to help its resellers sharpen their competitive edge. "In today's competitive environment, it is crucial for a distributor to make the time to understand its reseller partner's business," he said.
