Ball starts rolling for Synnex

Ball starts rolling for Synnex

SYNNEX has gone live but is still finalising deals with vendors.

Newly appointed country manager Richard Harri cannot yet reveal what products Synnex will distribute as contract negotiations are still underway, but says the brands will be big. He expects to be able to announce what Synnex will stock within the month.

In the meantime, the company is fitting out its 600m² premises in Harris Road, East Tamaki, east of Auckland, and is recruiting staff.

In addition to Harri, Synnex has appointed Rex Chen as operations manager and Felix Wong as a product specialist, and Harri is now looking for two inhouse sales consultants and a product manager.

He aims to have 13 staff onboard when the company starts trading.

Harri has not yet added resellers to the company’s books, saying this will only be done once Synnex can confirm which vendors it will represent. “They need to know what brands they can buy from you before they open accounts with you,” he says.

Harri joins Synnex after a brief stint as 3Com’s country manager. He previously worked for Ingram Micro and Tech Pacific. Chen and Wong also have years of experience in IT distribution.

In a statement, Synnex Australia managing director Frank Sheu says the company has a proven distribution model that can be successfully extended to New Zealand and a multi-billion dollar network, which allows it to respond quickly to global trends.
