David Ellis - Director of Global Services, Exclusive Group
Exclusive Networks has appointed technology specialist David Ellis as Group Director of Global Services, in a move designed to capitalise on the company’s ongoing investment in new services.
In joining from Arrow ECS, Ellis is tasked with rolling out new services offerings for the cybersecurity market, supporting the wider Exclusive Group’s ambition to retain and extend its value-added model on a global basis.
“David brings with him a wealth of experience and a track-record of success,” Exclusive Group COO, Barrie Desmond, said. “Services have always been at the heart of our value-add and are embedded in our DNA.
“Increasingly we’re seeing more and more global deals and our ability to support these will add even more value to both our vendor and channel partners alike.
“Global services are a key part of our growth strategy over the next 3-5 years and David will play a crucial role in achieving this.”
Ellis joins Exclusive Networks from Arrow ECS, where he was part of the senior leadership team in EMEA responsible for vendor business development and the roll-out of new propositions.
Before this, Ellis held position as the Director of New Technology and Services at Computerlinks before its acquisition by Arrow.
In his 13 years with Computerlinks, Ellis built and grew an e-Security offering before assuming responsibility for services, emerging technology and market sectors.
“Over recent years Exclusive Group has built an enviable reputation for disrupting traditional value-add distribution and I’m really excited to now be part of this,” Exclusive Group Director of Global Services, David Ellis, added.
“In my time within the industry I’ve identified and brought to market a number of new technologies and services, and have seen the cybersecurity market evolve at breakneck speed.”
