DiData staff changes to drive commercial growth

Dimension Data has shuffled a selection of key management into new positions to boost growth across its commercial and data centre business.

The company has promoted former national business manager for its Data Centre Solutions (DCS) practice, David Solsky, to the newly created role of national commercial sales manager.

Chief marketing officer, Gerard Florian, said the position would help it to drive growth across four of its six business divisions: networking and integration; data recovery and storage; desktop management; and security. Solsky would also develop new solutions and services for commercial clients, which consists of businesses with 250-1000 seats.

He joined Dimension Data after the company acquired SecureData in December last year, and was one of the co-founders and director of that business.

Solsky and DCS practice manager, Ronnie Altit, had been jointly running the newly established DCS business unit for the past five months, Florian said.

As a result of Solsky's change of position, Altit would take over the national business manager's role.

His other duties were being passed on to state branch managers, he said.

Florian said the company had waited until the SecureData business was well and truly bedded down before switching Solsky across to commercial sales.

DiData has also appointed former HP OSS business manager, Michael Patroni, as general manager of its professional services division.

Florian said the position had previously been one of the responsibilities of Jo D'Addio, who had left the company earlier this year.

Other staff had been acting in the role ever since, he said.

"We have been investing in management skills and consulting, plus traditional technical skills," Florian said. "Patroni's job is to bring all of these together and enhance our offering by taking our ITIL methodology and driving it through parts of the professional services business."
