Acer Africa has appointed a new channel manager and a new sales manager at its local office. 

Ian Rayner, who formerly headed up distributor Axiz's notebook division, has taken over from Shashank Sharma as the company's channel manager, while Graham Braum is in charge of overall sales.
Braum, who has been at Acer for nine years, is no stranger to the local operation having started with the company in its Durban branch before taking over the notebook division in Johannesburg. About three years ago, he moved to Dubai to develop Acer's Middle East notebook business.
Sharma, who had been the local channel manager for about two years, has been promoted to country manager for Acer Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
