Dicker Data has hired Alan Nehemia to a newly created role as national sales manager for New Zealand. 

Nehemia joins the distributor following leadership stints with SAP and Huawei. 

In his new role, he will be responsible for driving the success of Dicker Data’s partners. 

“Dicker Data NZ has a great reputation and I’m grateful for the opportunity to join an organisation that’s experiencing such strong growth,” Nehemia said. 

"With Dicker Data’s first TechX event in New Zealand quickly approaching in September, I look forward to the opportunity to get face-to-face with many of our customers from across the country."

Dicker Data COO, Vlad Mitnovetski added the New Zealand business has been delivering strong growth throughout 2019 and was confident that will continue to accelerate as a result of Nehemia’s appointment. The distributor currently maintains about 70 staff within its NZ branch. 

In June, Dicker Data NZ reported 2018 sales well down on 2017 after the loss of its Cisco distributorship.

The company reported sales of $90.2 million on 2018, down 36 per cent from $140.7 million in 2017. Net profit after tax was slashed from $2.6 million to $546,302. 

At the time, chairman and CEO, David Dicker, told Reseller News 2018 was Dicker Data NZ’s first full financial year of trading following the conclusion of the company's partnership with Cisco in that market. 

"Consequently, there was an impact on both the revenue and profitability of the NZ operation," he said. 

Since then, the company has restructured its local teams and forged several new significant partnerships. 

"I’m pleased to report that in the first quarter of 2019 our New Zealand operation has delivered double digit year on year growth. We are committed to the New Zealand market and have a positive outlook for 2019."
