• Exertis announces key organisational moves

        • Exertis has announced some organisational changes to its European, UK and Ireland operations which position the companies to take advantage of opportunities to grow their business now and in the future. 

          Paul Bryan, Exertis UK, Managing Director will take on the added responsibility of the Irish business, supported by Rod McCarthy who becomes Head of Ireland, following John Dunne’s promotion to the new position of Chief Commercial Officer, North America. Gerry O’Keeffe has moved to an international role responsible for expanding Exertis’ presence in existing and new territories, replicating the success already achieved in his previous position as Managing Director for the UK, Ireland and Middle East. Rod McCarthy will report to Paul Bryan with John Dunne reporting to Gerry O’Keeffe. Both Paul and Gerry report to Tim Griffin, DCC Technology and Exertis Group Managing Director.

          Tim said, “these changes to our organisation reflect our evolving business and our strategic ambitions to expand geographically, leverage our capabilities across our territories and ensure we serve more customers with the products, solutions and services that enable them to grow. I am confident that with the depth of experience and talent of our leadership team, we are in a great position to continue our successful transition into a service led, value-added distributor that provides specialist expertise and support for customers across a diverse range of technologies.

          The European and ME country managing directors and the CEOs of Jam Industries and Stampede (N.America, Latin America, Asia Pacific) will also report to Gerry, along with the EMEA category heads for Pro AV Solutions and Consumer Solutions. 

          In the UK and Ireland, Richard Hinds has been appointed to the new role of Chief Operating Officer with responsibility for the finance, purchasing, IT, logistics and customer services functions. Richard was previously Finance Director for Exertis UK. In addition, Mike Buley has been appointed as Managing Director of Exertis’ consumer division. Mike has been instrumental in building the retail business at Exertis for more than a decade. Both report to Paul Bryan.

          Paul said, “Richard has created an excellent finance function in the last three years and I am confident that he can replicate his achievements in the added areas of responsibilities that he now has taken on in this new role. As we continue to grow our business, Richard and his experienced team of direct reports will ensure we deliver a consistently high level of service to our customers whenever they engage with Exertis.”  

          Richard added, “I am delighted to be taking on this challenging role in what is an exciting time for Exertis as we continue to grow our business both organically and by acquisition. The UK and Ireland businesses are in great shape and I am fortunate to be inheriting a highly capable team that has many years’ experience in their respective roles.”

          Mark Kahr, Exertis UK Purchasing Director; Sion Wineyard, Exertis UK Operations Director; Nigel Arkwright, UK IT Director and Meurig Evans, Exertis UK & I Finance Director will all report to Richard Hinds. Mark Kahr will also have an expanded global brief in addition to his UK role.
