Distribution colossus Tech Data has recruited Dominique Deklerck as senior VP for Benelux, Iberia and Italy. Deklerck is an IT distribution industry veteran, having served for more than 25 years at rival distributor Ingram Micro, where he held a number of senior leadership roles including executive managing director, Belux, Italy, and Brazil; VP and deputy managing director, China; VP, business development, Singapore; and, most recently, in a global role as VP operations performance.

Deklerck succeeds Miriam Murphy as executive leader of the Benelux region following her recent appointment to senior VP advanced solutions Europe at Tech Data. In addition, Deklerck assumes overall executive leadership of Tech Data’s operations in Iberia and Italy. He will report to Patrick Zammit, president, Europe, as a member of the company’s European executive board.

Zammit said: “I am delighted to welcome someone of Dominique’s experience and industry stature to the team. He is a proven leader with an outstanding track record of successfully delivering business growth and operational enhancements. He brings a global vision of the IT distribution industry and I am confident that he will help us to strengthen and develop vendor relationships, customer experience, and business performance in our operations in Benelux, Iberia and Italy.”

Deklerck said: “Tech Data’s end-to-end offering and best-in-class people, processes and systems make it the pre-eminent distribution partner in Europe. The teams in Benelux, Iberia and Italy are already doing an outstanding job and I am really looking forward to supporting them as we work to deliver on Tech Data’s strategic goals and support our partners to enable business growth in a time of transformation for our industry.”

Tech Data has also realigned its leadership structure in Europe, creating a new DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) region led by Michael Dressen, who has led the company’s operations in Germany and Austria since 2012. Additionally, Tech Data’s Nordic and East regions, led by Joachim Palmé and Judith Ecker respectively, will now report directly to Zammit. Jonas Elmgren, senior VP, Nordics, Switzerland, East, Iberia and Italy, has decided to leave Tech Data to pursue new opportunities.

Zammit said: “This realignment is designed to increase leadership focus in these key strategic regions for Tech Data, while aligning us more closely with several of our key vendors who similarly organise their operations. On behalf of Tech Data, I would like to thank Jonas for his valuable contributions over many years of service as one of our key business leaders in Europe. I wish him every success for the future.”
