Avenir appoints former Nortel manager Ben Price in comms dealer role
Avenir has appointed former Nortel international channel manager Ben Price as the head of its comms dealer channel.
The distributor, which focuses predominantly on mobile, is now looking to move into the fixed-line communications arena.
Price will oversee work across voice, data and convergence projects while growing Avenir's dealer base.
Andy Tow, managing director of Avenir, said: ‘Ben brings with him a wealth of expertise and enthusiasm that is perfectly matched against our ambitions to become as significant a player in the comms channel as we are in mobile.
'He has already made some impressive connections outside of our core dealer base and into the broader comms space, and we look forward to watching this develop further.'
Avenir has recently been appointed as one of the partners in O2’s new ‘Approved’ scheme, meaning that its dealers will have access to the iPhone.
