Acer Africa country manager Graham Braum has ended a 15-year career with the company.

The current business unit (BU) managers will retain their positions until the appointment of a new country manager.

Braum joined Acer Africa in 1997 as the company’s first corporate account manager, and subsequently developed his career with the group in a variety of roles, ranging from technical and sales, through to business development and general management .

He helped to grow Acer Middle East from a small notebook base in 2003 to become a leading mobility player with over 25% market share before returning to South Africa in 2007 to serve as Acer Africa’s commercial manager.

“Acer Africa will continue to drive the Acer brand on the customer, services, sales and marketing fronts in a seamless and stable way ” says Grigory Nizovsky, vice-president of Acer Emerging Markets. “Acer commends Graham Braum for his exceptional work, and wishes him success in his new ventures.”

Braum has decided to focus his career on new ventures and turn his attention to new career opportunities.
