Getronics has promoted its UK and International CEO Paul Fox to the position of global head of sales for the company and its recent acquisition Pomeroy.

Fox will be responsible for growing the company's partner business by recruiting new businesses to help it achieve its goal of transforming clients' digital infrastructure. He has had a fair amount of preparation for the role, joining Getronics as CEO of Getronics’ UK & International business units in August 2017. Before that, he was CSO and prior to that, global business development director at the company.

“My focus at Getronics has been on helping both mid-market and enterprise companies use digital technology to support their business growth objectives," Fox said. "As Getronics’ head of sales for UK & International, my primary focus has been on growth, and I look forward to bringing that experience to bear in my new and expanded role.”

Before joining Getronics in 2014, Fox held sales leadership and international management roles at Samsung and Lexmark that equipped him for the positions at Getronics.

Fox will also join the Getronics board where he will advise on sales strategy as part of CEO Nana Baffour's drive to transform the company into a digital transformation market leader.

“On behalf of the entire team, I am delighted to welcome Paul to the board,” Baffour said. “I firmly believe that to grow and to be the best, we must have the best people proposition and be willing to do things differently. Paul not only shares these beliefs but has operated according to them from the day he joined Getronics.”
