Cellnet has appointed ex-Ingram Micro finance director, Mark Bloomer, as its new CFO. He replaces Scott McLennnan, who recently resigned to follow an opportunity with another listed company.
Bloomer's Ingram credentials and previous experience at office and IT distributor, the Blue Star Group, made him an important catch, Cellnet CEO, Adam Davenport, said.
"Mark [Bloomer] and I both worked at Blue Star so I'm well aware of his ability," he said. "He has what it takes to give us that extra horsepower under the bonnet."
Bloomer's experience as one of the architects in Ingram's Tech Pacific acquisition was also a major asset, Davenport said.
"We have grown by acquisition before, so future moves in that area are something we would consider," he said.
Following strong sales in Victoria, Cellnet had also appointed ex-Ingram Micro staffer, Frank Duvcevski, as Victorian account manager for its consumer products. Similar plans were also underfoot for expansion of the distributor's NSW staff, Davenport said.
"IT products such as storage have done particularly well for us," he said. "We are starting to be recognised as a genuine alternative to the other national IT players."
