High-Value EMEA distributor names Simon England as its CEO.
7 March 2019: Nuvias, the EMEA fast-growing, high-value distributor, has appointed Simon England as its new CEO. With a remarkable, wide-spanning career in IT Value Added Distribution, England is tasked to take Nuvias into the next phase of its development, leveraging the service-led and solution-rich platform and completing the vision to become Europe’s leading High-Value distributor, accelerating growth and impact for partners.
England has developed and led businesses in the Value Added Distribution space for almost 30 years. His previous role saw England lead the development of new business segments and models for Tech Data as SVP Next Generation Technologies, after considerably expanding the company’s value businesses, under the Azlan, Datech and Maverick brands, across Europe as SVP Value Added Business. England will take full operational control as CEO as of April 1st, 2019, reporting into the Nuvias Group Board.
The Nuvias Group has brought together award-winning channel businesses across Cybersecurity, Advanced Networking and Unified Communications. The initial phase, integrating these acquisitions as a group, has been led by Paul Eccleston, resulting in the creation of Europe’s leading challenger in the High-Value distribution landscape.
Paul Eccleston, who will take the position of Executive Chairman of Nuvias Group, retaining responsibility for Vendor and Corporate Strategy, commented: “This is a very exciting step in the development of Nuvias and will enable us to move forward under Simon’s leadership to fully realise the enormous opportunity for Nuvias over the months and years to come.”
Simon England, Nuvias CEO, said: “Nuvias is exceptionally well positioned in a market which continues to grow strongly and is transforming how IT Services are securely delivered and consumed. Nuvias has a unique set of assets, from its expertise and reputation to its partner network and portfolio of market-leading vendors and services. I am excited about the opportunity to build on these foundations and lead the senior management team to take Nuvias to its aggregate potential in EMEA.”
