​New director on board as Westcon-Comstor opens Aussie financial office

Distributor opens finance division targeting trans-Tasman resellers.

Westcon Financial Services has opened its first office in Australia, appointing Mark Hegarty as director of Australia and New Zealand operations.

As the finance division of Westcon-Comstor, Hegarty is tasked with leading the distributor’s business strategy on both sides of the Tasman, while managing and delivering financial solutions to local customers, partners and manufacturers.

Based in Sydney, Hegarty has more than 25 years’ experience in the financial services industry, working recently for CNH Industrial Capital as national sales manager and prior, as managing director of Future Finance Corporation.

“Mark brings a great deal of industry and financial services experience to the Australian operations,” Westcon Financial Services managing director, Christian Roelofs, said.

“He is ideally suited to help us expand both our team and product offering in a rapidly changing marketplace.”

The division provides consultation and financing options to the channel, working with resellers of all sizes as the market moves to an “as-a-Service” type model.

“Investment decisions are no longer about lease versus buy, and Westcon Financial Services can provide creative and innovative financial solutions tailored to today’s ‘Everything-as-a-Service’ business model,” Hegarty added.

“We are now in a unique position to provide Australian and New Zealand partners and customers with an integrated offering from the beginning of the engagement.

“The expansion of the team signals a strong commitment to the international financial services business. We now have a foundation across core geographies to accelerate the strategic objective of providing Westcon-Comstor customers with financial solutions that enable a genuine competitive advantage.”
