David Abouhaidar has resigned from his role as director of strategic alliances at AC3, exiting a business he co-owned for over 17 years.
ARN can exclusively reveal that the channel veteran has exited the business with immediate effect, and will take an extended break from the industry.
With expertise across reseller, distribution and retail industries, Abouhaidar leaves behind a team of directors which includes Simon Xistouris as CEO and Harry Kassianou as director of project services group.
"David has contributed to the success of AC3 and we acknowledge his efforts and thank him for the unconditional commitment and dedication throughout the years," an AC3 statement read.
"On behalf of everyone at AC3, we would like to wish David the best of success in his future challenges and endeavours."
Abouhaidar’s resignation comes less than four months after AC3 revealed a revamped strategy across Federal Government.
As reported by ARN, the technology provider - which counts HP, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Cisco, Microsoft, Dell EMC, Citrix and Lenovo as key vendor partners - unveiled plans to expand reach into Canberra, following a string of contractual successes within government.
The strategy and expansion plans comes almost four years since Klikon Solutions acquired all the shares in NSW government-owned AC3, for an undisclosed sum in December 2013.
Established in 1998, AC3 was the primary site for High Performance Computing within New South Wales (NSW).
A rebrand to AC3 soon followed post-merger, with the combined business specialising in cloud, software, managed services, procurement, professional services and talent management.
From a customer perspective, AC3 operates across both private and public sectors, working across a range of verticals nationwide.
As a registered supplier within the ICT Services Scheme, all NSW government agencies can purchase from AC3, with the provider operating as one of the anchor tenants in the two purpose built government data centres at Silverwater and Unanderra that are the GovDC.
ARN reached out to David Abouhaidar for comment but did not receive a response at the time of publication.
