New Softcat MD Richard Wyn Griffith has officially taken on the role, with incumbent Colin Brown set to stay on with the reseller to support the transition.
Brown announced in March that he would be stepping down from the role he's held since 2013, telling CRN he wanted to "do a few a different things in different areas".
In a LinkedIn post he confirmed that Wyn Griffith would take on the role from today, with Brown staying on for "a few more months".
"For now I would simply like to thank everyone that I've worked with this last eight years and pass the baton on to Richard Wyn Griffith, a Softcat veteran of 18 years who will be taking over from Monday 3 August," he said.
"Needless to say Rich has the full support of the entire company behind him and I'll be doing whatever I can to make him comfortable in the hot seat!"
The change comes as Softcat exits a financial year which Brown called his most memorable at Softcat.
"I'd like to extend a huge and heartfelt thanks to our fantastic employees for their incredible efforts over the period, but in particular since March," he said.
"It's been stressful, scary and challenging, so an even bigger than normal thanks to the entire workforce for pulling together & making our company somewhere to feel safe and supported, and for their superb efforts to drive our business as successfully as possible given the circumstances."
