Toshiba distributor Interface Systems International is set to re-enter the desktop PC market by adding the manufacturer?s Equium range of PCs to its portfolio.
The Slough-based distributor, which has been a Toshiba notebook distributor for the past two years, has appointed Brian Green as its PC business manager to take charge of the division. Green, who was previously the product manager at server manufacturer ALR, joined Interface on 9 June.
Green said he was sad to leave ALR but is looking forward to working with Toshiba. ?Naturally, I?ll be sad at leaving ALR, but there comes a time when it?s right to move on to bigger and better things.?
Julian Neath, ALR UK MD, said he was in no hurry to find a replacement product manager. ?It?s a great loss ? he was a great guy. But there?s no point in rushing into finding a replacement. I hope to have a new product manager settled in by October. Brian?s marketing functions will now be taken over in full by Alison Pritchard [ALR marketing manager].?
Ken Sinden, Interface Systems MD, said Green was the right person for the job. ?If you want to be taken seriously with this sort of thing, you have to get the right people in place. Brian has a good reputation in the industry and it was a natural move for both parties.?
Toshiba launched its range of Equium desktop PCs, targeted at corporate users, on June 2 (PC Dealer, 4 June).
