Tech Data Mobile MD Peter Hubbard departs
Tech Data Mobile UK and Ireland MD Peter Hubbard is leaving the distributor, sources have confirmed to Mobile.
The announcement is believed to be part of a cost cutting drive, following the loss of Tech Data’s distribution contract with Tesco earlier this year. With industry sources telling Mobile that former Phones 4U director Matt Child is expected to replace Hubbard as MD.
Hubbard took on the top role in 2014, after being promoted from sales director of its Computer 2000 division following a management reshuffle. The MD oversaw the ‘competitive’ Samsung distribution tendering process, in which Tech Data secured a partnership with the manufacturer.
Tech Data Mobile has declined Mobile’s requests for a comment.
