Computacenter builds for the future with new UK lead

cccComputacenter, which has an excellent track record of retaining staff and succession planning, has appointed Neil Hall as the company’s new UK lead. Hall was TUPE’d into Computacenter from GE Capital in 2001 and was most recently Director of Group Managed Services. He knows the UK business intimately so will hit the ground running.

Hall will be taking over from Kevin James who is moving up to a Group role (Chief Commercial Officer). James joined Computacenter in 1990 so is well-placed to work at the Group level, particularly in managing the key vendor relationships, which include all the biggies such as HPE, VMware, Cisco, Microsoft, Dell EMC and IBM.

To that end, the appointment of Andy Stafford (ex-Unisys and Accenture) to the role of COO (replacing Chris Webb who is leaving after nearly 30 years) is important. Among other things, Stafford will be helping to develop offerings and improve service quality. Computacenter also has a strong graduate/apprentice recruitment programme, which is helping to create a flow of new and young talent into the company. More...
