Derek said, “having supported the Olivetti dealers for the past 15 years with account management and product support, I am excited to be joining the business as it goes from strength to strength, allowing firstly the joint Olivetti and Data Direct dealers continuity through the Olivetti change of business model, and secondly maximising the Data Direct portfolio within these dealers.”
