Nigel Webb will initially join on an interim basis, but Kelway is hoping he will take the role full time in due course.
In a statement, Phil Doye, chief executive of Kelway, said: "Nigel Webb enjoyed a long and varied sales career with Nortel, during which time he managed some of their key major accounts before taking on more strategic roles in both solutions and managed services.
"More recently he has widened his experience through a number of consultancy and interim roles. Although Nigel will initially join us in an interim capacity he will be a member of the executive team of Dan Laws, Chris Rickman and Craig Compton, and it is our hope that he will go on to take up the role on a permanent basis," he said.
