  • Willems started as an IT technician but found sales to be his true passion

    Express Data’s Gerard Willems was preparing for life as an IT technician after earning an NZ certificate in Electrical Engineering. But he admits he wasn’t a natural at the “technical stuff”, so his boss at the time offered him a role selling Amstrad and Commodore Computers. Not long after that, he started his first IT distribution sales role as account manager with Melco Sales (now BDT) and in February 2000 Gerard started the Express Data Christchurch branch. For the last three years he has been the nationwide Microsoft BDM at Express Data.
