Tech Data Mobile appoints new MD
Tech Data Mobile has confirmed that Matt Child will lead the company as MD.
The company explained that the former director of Phones 4U will ‘lead the business in the next phase of its development’, following the news that former MD Peter Hubbard will leave Tech Data UK.
Hubbard’s departure was confirmed to Mobile, with sources claiming it was part of a drive to cut costs, following the loss of Tech Data’s distribution contract with Tesco.
Child explained that his new role will involve continuing Tech Data’s growth, as well as working to expand its customer base. He said: ‘I am delighted to be taking up this new challenge and honoured to have been given the opportunity to lead Tech Data Mobile to the next phase of its growth and development. Having had several opportunities to return to mobile it was important for me to join the right business.
‘Tech Data Mobile is uniquely positioned to enable and support the market in addressing the massive opportunities around product supply, lifecycle services and mobile integration. We have an unrivalled opportunity to not only continue to develop its existing customer base but to engage and deliver new customers to the UK Business.’
