​Phil Presnall resigns from Dicker Data

Channel veteran exits top role at distributor.

Phil Presnall has resigned from his role as General Manager of Sales and Marketing at Dicker Data New Zealand, and will depart the distributor on 3 March.

“We thank Phil for his contribution to our business and wish him success in his future endeavours,” Dicker Data Chairman and CEO, David Dicker, said.

Reseller News can confirm that Gavan Brunton, General Manager of Finance and Administration, Dicker Data New Zealand, will take over as acting local leader until a suitable replacement candidate is found.

"We have an outstanding team in place in New Zealand and I am confident in their ability to continue delivering strong results during the interim period," Dicker added.

"The search for a replacement candidate who will continue to drive our momentum in the New Zealand market and deliver on our 2017 growth plans is underway.

"I can confidently reassure all of our valued reseller and vendor partners that it’s business as usual through-out the transition period."

Dicker Data entered the Kiwi market through its 2014 acquisition of IT distribution company, Express Data Australia and New Zealand.

Prior to taking the hot seat at Dicker Data, Presnall was Sales Manager at Express Data in New Zealand, in a role that spanned nearly four years before the business was acquired.

Previously, Presnall was a Partner Manager at Microsoft from July 2004 until March 2008.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
