Former Microsoft exec Gary Fowle has joined Exertis to head up the next phase of Kondor’s integration. The Dorset-based distributor was acquired by Exertis parent company DCC in July.
Fowle was previously a VP at Microsoft responsible for the OEM device business in the US. Prior to that he was General Manager for Microsoft in the Asia Pacific and a Senior Director in the UK operation. He has also worked in senior positions for Fujitsu Siemens and Tech Data.
Fowle has been working with Dr Beatrice Lafon, CEO of Kondor, who led the sale of the business and initial integration, to ensure a smooth handover.
Paul Bryan, Exertis UK, MD said: “Kondor has an exciting future and we intend to significantly invest in the people, product portfolio and customer engagement, taking advantage of the company’s expertise in providing a range of retail services.
"Gary knows the channel and distribution well having spent many years in senior board level positions over the last 18 years.”
