By Simon Meredith | 23rd January 2017

Basingstoke, 23 January 2017 – Azlan, the enterprise value added distribution business of Tech Data, has appointed Rachel Paterson as Sales Manager for Information Management and Security business to provide additional focus on this key area of growth potential.

Paterson brings over a decade of experience working in security-focused roles within distribution – most recently as Business Development Manager for Veritas and Symantec at Arrow ECS – to the new post. She will head a ten-strong team, working with resellers to develop their capabilities and open opportunities with information management and security solutions.

“Following soon after the intake of experienced and expert information management staff we made last year, and the formation of Azlan’s specialist Security business unit, Rachel’s appointment underlines our determination to succeed in this vitally important part of the market’, said Peter Spreadbury, Director of the Software at Azlan. “She has the qualities and capabilities required to galvanise and inspire the skilled team we have brought together and drive high-value initiatives and growth for our vendor partners and customers.”

Azlan is already making its mark in these key sectors. In the final quarter of 2016, Azlan underlined its commitment to growing its information management business by swelling its specialist Veritas team to 15, bringing additional business development, sales and technical staff into its Warrington location.  In security, Azlan is the only distributor able to offer the Symantec Backup Exec server-attach programme and is actively collaborating and integrating solutions across multiple server vendors, including HPE, Lenovo and Dell.
