Westcon Comstor has made a key appointment to manage a selection of the distie’s essential infrastructure and security vendors.
Phil Rettenmaier has been named Westcon’s vendor director and joins fellow director Steve Jones in overseeing the distributor’s vendor portfolio.
Rettenmaier joins from Arrow ECS Australia, where he was the HPE business manager. He will now report to Westcon-Comstor Australia managing director Phil Cameron.
“After a record year, we are thrilled to announce Phil’s appointment, he will join our local leadership team, and work in parallel with Steve to drive further partner growth and vendor specialisation in the Westcon portfolio,” Cameron said.
Prior to his two year run at Arrow, Rettenmaier spent six years with HPE, where he held the role of distribution sales manager and national sales manager. He has also worked for Melbourne IT, and spent nine years in partner-facing roles at IBM.
“I look forward to working alongside Phil and Steve, and leading the transformation journey Westcon is on.” Rettenmaier said.
“We will deliver operational excellence and continue to augment the level of support, technical enablement, vendor marketing and value we are bringing back to our partners through deeper vendor specialisation and skills.”
