Exertis appoints Business Intelligence Manager
2017-07-31

United Kingdom: broadliner Exertis has appointed Jonathan Wagstaff to the newly created position of Business Intelligence Manager. Based in Basingstoke with a European remit, his role will help to identify trends in the technology market, including new technologies, significant new market players (vendors, customers, operators, and others) and the impact of these new technologies on the distribution space. He will report to Stephen Casey, Finance & Development Director at DCC Technology.

"I am delighted to welcome Jonathan to Exertis. Exertis has undergone a successful period of growth with several key acquisitions across the Group. Whilst we have a very strong technology proposition, it's important we continue to identify and translate market opportunities into actions that can benefit our business, and also the business of our vendor partners and reseller customers both in existing and new territories. Jonathan's experience in data analytics and how the channel operates is ideally suited to fulfilling the task of providing business intelligence that can enable us to take the right decisions to meet our Group objectives", said Casey.

Wagstaff joins from Context, a leading European data analyst company that tracks sales and pricing information from within the IT channel, where he managed EMEA wide data collection projects for major ICT vendors and had responsibility for the UK and IE distribution, reseller and retail panels. He was also instrumental in setting up Context's VR Research Group and PC Gaming category tracking. Wagstaff said: "having worked at Context, I appreciate the importance of interpreting data and identifying trends, and the value that business analytics can bring to companies when making critical decisions. Data is often called the new oil; as distribution rapidly evolves and margins feel pressure its importance has shifted. Exertis is one of the largest and most successful technology distributors in Europe and their ambition to grow profitably, whilst looking for new market opportunities based on sound business intelligence, was a challenge that appealed to me."

With degrees from Oxford and Johns Hopkins Universities, Wagstaff has been a regular contributor to IT trade titles on research matters and has spoken at many industry events including the Plug In To Exertis channel event in May. He has specialist knowledge of the UK ICT supply chain and the global VR, Smart Home, and PC Gaming markets.

2017-05-29

Broadliner Exertis has extended its Connect range of cables, connectors and accessories. As well as the existing range of high quality AV, IT, and networking options it has now included power cables, patch panels and a whole host of accessories. Kirk Harris, Exertis Connect Business Manager, said: "we are delighted to be able to offer our resellers an even wider range of products from the Connect catalogue with over 3,000 products available, making us the go-to distributor for connectivity needs. Our customers already buy infrastructure, IT, audio and visual products from Exertis and these provide enhanced margin opportunities."

The new Connect catalogue provides comprehensive information to help customers choose the right option including definitions, usage and wiring diagrams, as well as practical advice. Resellers have been complimentary about the brand. Stuart Starkey, Pioneer Group Operations Manager, said: "we chose the Connect range for a large Digital Menu Board rollout, we have 4,500 of these out in the field and have had no failures to date and continue to use this range. Great cables at a great price."

DCC, Exertis parent company, acquired French specialist distributor CUC, an importer and wholesaler of quality cables and connectors from the Far East, in November 2015. The Connect range is now available from Exertis in Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
