Cisco has named its German boss and former CEO of Computacenter Germany Oliver Tuszik as its new head of global channel sales.
Tuszik replaces Wendy Bahr who promptly resigned in August after 15 years at the company.
According to Cisco, Tuszik is an "accomplished leader" who has led its German team in delivering five years of successive growth and two years of double-digit sales growth.
Before joining Cisco in 2013, the new channel boss was CEO of Computacenter's German business for almost 10 years having previously led the reseller's networking arm.
Tuszik began his new role as of yesterday to lead Cisco's channel business, which accounts for around 85 per cent of the vendor's overall sales.
The new appointment at the top of Cisco comes just a day after the vendor announced a new EMEAR head following the promotion of Edwin Paalvast to a global role. Wendy Mars previously led Cisco's EMEAR channel business before taking the new position.
