Colin McGregor, Bell Micro

Chessington, Surrey – Specialist value-added distributor, Bell Micro today confirmed that Colin McGregor has been appointed to its board of directors with immediate effect. The promotion hands McGregor a wide remit within the European Enterprise business - including the UK Enterprise Sales team, the HP and Symantec Division, Open Storage, both the Security and Networking divisions, and Partner Services.

The appointment, announced by John Toal, confirmed that a significant part of McGregor’s role would be to ensure the development of Bell Micro’s product and services portfolio across all geographies in line with a higher level business strategy that will focus on broadening the distributor’s capabilities. As well as focusing on improving efficiencies across his areas of responsibility, McGregor will also lead an initiative to drive forward consistent levels of business by maximising existing partner relationships, and recruiting new resellers where necessary.

John Toal, President of European Operations said of the appointment, “I have worked with Colin for the past 8 years and his proven track record gives me all the confidence that I need to know he will be successful in this new role. There is no doubt that his ideas and approach, combined with a very motivated team, will have a very positive impact on the Bell Micro business going forward.”

McGregor's immediate priority will be to review each of the business units in the Enterprise remit to understand how Bell Micro can drive incremental business for vendors and partners alike.

"Bell Micro has great breadth of customer base and a wide portfolio of vendor technologies to offer," comments McGregor. "The value our team brings to customers and vendors is the ability to expand the ‘share of wallet’ in areas that they may not be currently addressing. My key priority will be to drive this value proposition further to help partners maximise relationships within their existing focus areas and to also develop profitable business in new markets."
