Allan Mack will move back from Frontline Distribution to Datech as part of the changes announced last week which will see Frontline become a purely commodity distributor. Datech has taken control of all its technical business.
Mack's fellow Frontline joint MD Graham Watt will take control of Frontline, but the two men will maintain joint responsibility for Computer 2000 in the UK. PC Dealer revealed that Frontline would announce the changes last week, but it was then unclear what would happen to UK staff.
Datech's lease on its offices in Sidcup, Kent, will run out later this year. A source said it will relocate its staff to be close to Basingstoke-based Frontline. Frontline marketing director David Clark confirmed that the lease will expire but said the location was not finalised.
Frontline hired a cinema last Wednesday to show its staff the proposed changes and tell them what would happen to the companies. At the cinema, Frontline said its workstation and Unix divisions will move to Datech.
