David Watts has been promoted to the role of Senior Vice President, UK and Ireland at Tech Data.
As part of a planned leadership transition, Watts extends his current role as operational leader of Tech Data’s UK and Ireland business to assume the strategic development responsibilities previously held by Andy Gass. Gass continues in Tech Data’s European leadership team with an expanded role covering digital transformation and commercial excellence for the European region.
He said: “It’s an honour to lead the UK and Ireland team. Everyone at Tech Data is fully dedicated to helping our partners and suppliers to grow and develop their businesses while supporting them in addressing the many challenges they face, particularly at this time. I want to thank Andy for his tremendous support and guidance over the past five years.”
Gass will now focus fully on his role as leader of Tech Data’s digital transformation in Europe, enhancing and digitising core go-to-market capabilities and implementing Tech Data’s commercial excellence strategy across the region. He also serves as European leader for Tech Data’s global programme to simplify, standardise and synchronise key business processes and systems.
