Avnet Technology Solutions has recruited former Juniper and Symantec executive Grant Reddin to steer its sales efforts in the networking and security space.
After serving as UK distribution manager for Avnet partner Juniper, Reddin joins the distributor in the post of UK sales director, networking and security.
He also held sales and management positions with Symantec. Reddin will report into networking, security and UC business unit director Pete Hannah, who moved up into that position following Laura Harman’s recent promotion to a wider group sales director role.
Reddin said: “I plan to capitalise on the investment that Avnet has already made in networking and security, and quickly identify new areas of high growth potential for our partners.” Hannah said: “Grant Reddin is highly regarded in the distribution, networking and security industries.”
