Avnet Technology Solutions has revealed Tom Corrigan will join its UK leadership team as sales director as from January 1, 2015.

The promotion follows five years at Avnet UK during which time Corrigan has held management positions within the organisation’s IBM and NetApp businesses. For the last two years he has been business unit leader, open storage and Cisco, responsible for developing and executing growth strategies for suppliers such as EMC, Cisco and VCE.

In his new role Corrigan will report directly to Miriam Murphy, SVP, North region, Avnet Technology Solutions, EMEA who explains: “It was always our goal to fill the position of sales director in the UK internally, and Tom’s talent for planning and executing innovative business development strategies will help us accelerate growth and drive opportunities for our customers and suppliers. His experience and enthusiasm will guarantee a smooth transition into the new position with colleagues and business partners.”

“Success in the channel depends on the ability to build and organise high performance teams,” adds Corrigan. “An integral part of my new responsibilities will be to ensure close teamwork between Avnet and its business partners, including systems integrators and managed service providers. During my time with Avnet I have witnessed a transition from selling technology to the delivery of innovative business solutions and my goal will be to further enable that change while meeting our customers’ needs.”
