i.t.connXions has changed its name to Alstom Information Technology. According to the company's divisional chief executive, Laurie Sellers, the change resulted from the public listing of the distributor's two parent companies -- GEC and Alcatel. The companies were floated on the London, Paris and New York stock exchanges -- the largest float ever of a private company in Europe.
Sellers decided to rename the Australian venture as a result of the float. The company now has a new logo, a new look and a new feel, Sellers said.
He claimed many people in the channel didn't realise the distributor was part of a large international company, which had an $18 billion turnover last year. The new name also coincides with the company's decision to move to new premises in the Sydney suburb of North Ryde.
