Eager Eade gets made

After filling in as Toshiba’s country manager for nearly three months, Callum Eade was given the nod to head the notebook vendor in New Zealand late last year.

Eade had been acting country manager since the departure of Steve Ford (who is now general manager of the Apple division at distributor Renaissance) last September and one of his first tasks in his new role is to find a replacement for the channel manager role he had held for the past 18 months.

“I hope to have someone on board by the end of January,” says Eade.

Drawing on his experience and relationships in the channel, which stem from his time at Tech Pacific as channel manager for its SMB sales team and a Toshiba product manager, Eade is eager to build on the brand’s success in the country in recent years.

However, he admits he has a big task to fulfil as during his predecessor’s three-and-a-half-year tenure, Toshiba increased its retail focus, growing this part of the business to 25% and posted a record turnover of $62 million for its last financial year.
