Former EMC A/NZ general manager of channel sales, Chris Trevitt, has joined Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) as its director - indirect, South Pacific Enterprise Group. Trevitt will commence his role on March 29.

Trevitt takes over the role from Kaaren Lewis, who held on to that role until January 29. Lewis was the company's channel, SMB, and alliances indirect sales director. The company's SMB country manager, Nicholas Lambrou, took on Lewis' responsibilities, in addition to his, up till Trevitt’s employment.

As for the EMC A/NZ channel business, it has been managed by A/NZ general manager of service provider, systems integrators and alliances, Mark Fioretto, and Brett Harris was named A/NZ general manager, mid-market, inside sales and distribution since Trevitt’s departure.

Trevitt was with EMC for about 10 years, starting out as a commercial account manager (between 2005 and 2008) before moving up the ranks and becoming A/NZ general manager of channel sales.

Prior to being EMC A/NZ general manager of channel sales, a role he was in for almost three years, he was its National Australia Bank enterprise account director for a little over three years.

He also previously spent about seven years at IBM as its account manager.

A HPE spokesperson confirmed the move but said the company will not be issuing any "proactive media statements" around his appointment.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
