20:20 appoints new group commercial director
20:20 has snapped up Bhavesh Patel, formerly of Ingram Micro, as its new group commercial director.
Patel started his new role on Monday (23 February) this week, in which he will report to group CEO Meinie Oldersma. He replaces George Steur, who vacated the role to become managing director for the international business last autumn.
Patel joins following a 17-year spell at Ingram Micro, where he worked in a number of key executive roles, latterly as commercial director in the UK, since 2001.
Oldersma said: ‘We are delighted to welcome Bhavesh to the group. He brings a wealth of commercial experience from the IT sector and a fantastic range of expertise gained as a senior executive, with a strong reputation for consistently delivering excellent results.’
