Basingstoke, 03 March 2015 – TDMaverick, the specialist audiovisual business unit of Tech Data, has made a further commitment to its future growth and development with a trio of key appointments.

Shaun Elliott has joined the business as Sales Director with responsibility for Maverick’s further growth while Simon Millidge has been appointed as Education Channel Manager. Both bring extensive experience in distribution to these key roles.

In addition, Carmel Keightley has joined Maverick as its new dedicated Marketing Manager, moving over after a very successful two years working in the Public Sector team. She will take responsibility for Maverick’s customer focused campaigns, supporting business growth for both professional AV and B2B resellers.

Director of Maverick UK, Simon Fagan, stated: “These appointments are a measure of the confidence and commitment we have in our business. We grew significantly last year and we have shown how effective we can be in driving and supporting development for our partners and customers. With the experience and expertise they bring, Shaun, Simon and Carmel will add even more energy and enthusiasm to our team and enable us to evolve and enhance the strategic focus of our business.”

Maverick wants to encourage more resellers to exploit the benefits and added potential of AV solutions in the wider business market and plans to follow a successful year of growth in 2014 by developing and expanding on its current partnerships and leveraging the capabilities and reach of the wider Tech Data organisation.
