By Simon Meredith | 15th February 2018

Warrington, 15 February 2018 – Synaxon UK has added two new members to its team, appointing Luke Steel as Vendor Channel Manager and Chris Yule to the post of Internal Sales Executive. These appointments take the Synaxon UK’s headcount to 15 and further underline the group’s commitment to the UK.

Luke Steel brings more than two decades of experience to the services organisation, 17 of which he spent at distributor Entatech, where was responsible for networking, comms and surveillance business and was latterly as leader of the Corporate Team. Chris Yule has joined Synaxon from VIP Computers, where he has worked as a Sales Account Manager for the past two years.

Welcoming them to the business, Mike Barron, UK Channel Director, said: “We’re delighted to have added these two experienced and talented individuals to our growing team. It’s great news for members and partners as it means we can give them even more support and assistance in achieving their goals.”

Luke Steel said: “I’ve now been in the industry for 20 years and I’ve met some great characters along the way. I pride myself on delivering great service and helping customers to achieve new business goals. I now have the chance to do that at a much more personal level – with resellers, distributors and vendors – by joining the Synaxon UK team.”

Chris Yule said: “After gaining initial experience by completing an apprenticeship at VIP Distribution, I knew a career in sales was for me as I loved interacting with customers.  I have been studying for my sales qualifications and I’m really looking forward to working for Synaxon UK and adding to my skills within an established business.”

With well over 600 members, Synaxon is the biggest and most influential channel services group serving the UK MSP, IT reseller and office products dealer channel communities. It offers a wide range of services that enable members to develop their skills and capabilities, get the very best availability and terms from distributors, and run their businesses more efficiently.

The group’s annual conference is one of the highlights of the channel calendar in the UK, bringing more than 400 delegates from members and supplier partners for two days of one-to-one meetings, networking, business and technical workshops, and thought-provoking presentations. This year’s event will take place at the prestigious International Centre in Telford on 7 and 8 June.
