Darren Lewitt, who has led the AV business for many years, is passing over day-to-day responsibility for vendor relations to Stuart Mizon (pictured) and Lee Baker, both of whom become Divisional Directors. Darren will continue to work on a part-time basis with the business in a new role of Group Development Director – identifying and developing new technology areas.
After 31 years’ service, Alex Ward , Commercial Director, is to step back from full time responsibilities within the business, which was established in 1979. Tracey Perkins, formerly Group Credit Service Manager has now become Director of Operations, taking over responsibility for operations, customer services, logistics, returns and insurance in addition to her management of the credit function.
Jonny Francis will head the vendor sales specialist teams – covering all technologies and divisions within the business. Stuart Mizon will assume business management responsibilities for the print and imaging division in addition to his current areas of projection and security. Lee will continue to manage the key display and consumer divisions of Midwich – but with a growing involvement in the development of new business areas.
Tom Sumner takes on the role of Director of European Business. He will have line management responsibility for French division Sidev, plus responsibility for the development of Midwich divisions elsewhere in Europe and for all European warehousing (including the UK).
Stephen Fenby, managing director for Midwich, said: “I would like to thank Alex and Darren for their contribution to the development of the business over many years, and look forward to working with them in their new roles in the future. I am delighted with the promotions announced for Jonny, Lee, Stuart, Tom and Tracey and look forward to a new era at Midwich.”
