Wendy O'Keeffe resigns from Dicker Data board to take full-time position

Wendy O'Keeffe has resigned from the Dicker Data board after accepting "a full-time executive role with another organisation".

She joined the Dicker board less than six months ago as its first independent non-executive director since the distributor listed on the ASX in 2011.

O'Keeffe would not confirm her new employer when contacted by CRN.

The Dicker appointment came after a long career in distribution at both Westcon-Comstor and Tech Pacific.

O'Keeffe joined Westcon in 2001 and became managing director for Australia and New Zealand in 2005. During her four-year tenure as managing director, O'Keeffe saw 36 consecutive quarters of growth at the distributor.

In 2009, she was called up to lead the Asia-Pacific business as executive vice president for the region, where she remained until her departure in November 2016.

Prior to Westcon, O'Keeffe began working for multinational distributor Tech Pacific as telecommunications division director before the company was acquired by Ingram Micro in 2004.

O'Keeffe has also served on advisory boards for a number of vendors including Juniper, Polycom, Avaya, Palo Alto and, most notably, Cisco. Westcon brought its Cisco-only distribution brand, Comstor, to Australia, shifting its entire Cisco business to the new brand in the process.
