Westcon-Comstor has appointed Leigh Howard as Sales Director UK&I for its Cisco-dedicated Comstor business. Reporting to newly appointed MD, Clive Hailstone, Howard’s proven leadership gained from a rich variety of past executive positions will be instrumental to Comstor’s growth plans. Howard is also no stranger to the Westcon-Comstor business having previously been MD of its ANZ business and Westcon sales director.
Commenting on the appointment, Hailstone said: “Leigh is proven, respected and a great fit for us. His rich experience, engaging manner and ability to understand partners’ needs will be central to our success as we introduce new partners into the Cisco world, and work more closely with our existing ones to ensure they really profit from their Cisco business. With Cisco game changing technologies, Comstor’s enablement and support initiatives, and Leigh’s guidance and direction, now is a very good time to be a Cisco and Comstor partner.”
Howard added: “Comstor is synonymous with customer service excellence and an unmatched understanding of everything Cisco. However, I aim to raise the bar even higher and ensure this exceptionally talented Comstor team is the best any UK partner can work with. We’re here to advise, guide and mentor new partners wanting to invest in a Cisco business and enable existing partners to develop their Cisco capabilites.”
Mike Smith, Cisco Manager Regional Sales added: “We’re extremely excited by Leigh’s appointment. He brings a wealth of distribution and partner experience and will be a valued member of the new UK leadership team. I look forward to working more closely with both him and the re-energised sales team going forward.”
