Nankivell to take helm of Simms' enterprise business

Kingston country manager Vaughan Nankivell will put his experience with the vendor to good use when he joins its local distributor Simms International early next month.

His role at Simms will be corporate and enterprise general manager, which will involve promoting Simms' product portfolio to existing and new resellers, developing new corporate and enterprise-focused channel partnerships and working with Simms staff to take on new brands for Simms International in New Zealand and Australia.

“Simms was established in New Zealand in early 2010 and already they have gained a solid reputation in the reseller community for customer service and support," says Nankivell.

Nankivell had been Kingston's New Zealand country manager since April, when the vendor promoted Marites Bairstow to oversee Australia.

Prior to joining Tech Pacific (now Ingram Micro), Nankivell worked at IBM software reseller Convergence.
