• TOUGHBOOK Group hires new UK & Ireland Country Manager

        • Panasonic has announced the appointment of Chris Turner as the new Country Manager for the UK & Ireland TOUGHBOOK Group. 

          Chris has more than a decade’s experience at Panasonic TOUGHBOOK helping business customers improve the productivity of their mobile workforces with the implementation of Panasonic TOUGHBOOK’s rugged notebooks, tablets, and handheld devices. His focus will be to build on the market-leading success of Panasonic TOUGHBOOK’s rugged notebooks and tablets in the UK and Ireland, rapidly grow Panasonic’s share of the handheld market and accelerate focus from hardware to mobile business solutions.

          Chris said, “historically the challenge has been to put computing power into the hands of mobile workforces to improve productivity and reduce costs. The next wave of business transformation comes from delivering tailored mobile business solutions to the workforce. Those solutions come from combining the power of our rugged devices with the right applications, management functionality and peripherals to enable the mobile worker to achieve more than ever before possible. Using Panasonic’s design, engineering and solutions know-how alongside the innovation of our software partners, we have the ability to deliver tailored solutions to business customers from retail, logistics and manufacturing through to utilities, emergency services, and defence.”

          Chris takes on the country manager role from Kevin Tristram, who under his 20-year tenure built Panasonic TOUGHBOOK into the leading provider of rugged notebooks and tablets in the UK and Ireland. Kevin remains with Panasonic TOUGHBOOK to support Chris as the UK General Manager, his experience will be invaluable in his new role.

          Chris has a deep understanding of the role of mobile computing across industries having worked in Panasonic TOUGHBOOK sales roles across the retail, oil and gas, telecoms, defence, and government sectors.
