Nick McMenemy, Westcon's director of vendor alliances, marketing and innovation, has resigned, with IBM and Toshiba channel veteran Phil Cameron announced as taking the mantle.

"I resigned a month ago," McMenemy told CRN. "But I'm still there until the end of the month tying up loose ends."

Prior to joining Westcon in May 2012, McMenemy had worked for prominent resellers Thomas Duryea and Brennan IT.

"My work [at Westcon] is done. I had a certain list of things I wanted to achieve and I've done that. Westcon is in good shape," said McMenemy. "Two of my biggest achievements have been securing the NetApp deal and the recent successful SAP system implementation – and now it's time to move on."

McMenemy added that he leaves Westcon on good terms. He declined to reveal what his next post would be.

Cameron will start as the new ANZ director of vendor alliances next month.

Cameron brings an impressive channel pedigree to the distributor. He spent two decades at Toshiba, and then served as channel manager for IBM for four years. From 2005 to 2010 he was the ANZ managing director for Lenovo, before spending a year at CA Technologies. IBM then welcomed Cameron back in 2010 for his most recent role as ANZ director of business partner organisation role.

Westcon has also appointed Michelle Hall as its new ANZ director of marketing. She fills the place of Melita Powys, who has parted ways with Westcon after 14 years. Hall has been with Westcon New Zealand since 2008, when the company was named Datastor.

Managing director Dave Rosenberg told CRN Monday evening that the distie was preparing a statement.

Westcon has had an eventful year, appointing Rosenberg in July; nabbing the NetApp channel in October after Dicker Data was gazumped in the 11th hour; launching a cloud marketplace then acquiring the company that provided the platform; and partnering with vendor Avaya to release an anti-swoop deal registration app.
