Rod Millar, president of UK distributor Tech Data Mobile, has moved to the US, sources claim.
As Mobile went to press it is unclear if Millar has quit the company or whether he will continue to work with parent group Tech Data Corp in the US.
His departure will come as a further blow to the beleaguered mobile distribution arm of Computer 2000, which is a subsidiary of Tech Data Corp. Sources report poor morale at Tech Data Mobile with claims that the upheavals in the company are affecting customer confidence.
Tech Data Mobile has seen a number of key management changes this year, including the departure of Jim Michel, UK and Ireland regional VP, who left for personal reasons in April. His role was taken on by Stephen Nolan, Tech Data Mobile Europe’s vice-president.
Michel’s departure was closely followed by Tech Data Mobile’s accessories chief Martijn Van Den Hout, who left in May to take up a position in Jabra’s European division.
Millar has a long career in mobile distribution in the UK. He joined 20:20 Mobile in 1999, rising to logistics MD, leaving in 2006 to take up the role of president of Brightstar Europe, a joint venture between Tech Data Corp and Brightstar Corp.
Millar was appointed president of Tech Data Mobile last year after it was created from Tech Data Corp’s acquisition of Brightstar Corp’s 50% stake in Brightstar Europe in September 2012.
Rod Millar and Tech Data Mobile was unavailable for comment as Mobile went to press.
