The former MD of Acer SA and Acer UK, David Drummond – who unexpectedly left the Taiwanese PC manufacturer in February – is back in South Africa. And he's once again working in the local PC sector.
Drummond started work on Monday as a consultant to Lenovo South Africa tasked with helping the company to improve its channel strategy in the region.
"We are more than pleased to have someone of the calibre of David Drummond on board," says Lenovo SA country general manager, Henry Ferreira. "We've hired him as a channel consultant to look at our channel programme and our go to market structure in this regard.
"We're confident that he'll give us a fresh perspective on our approach to the channel and will help us make our channel the best in the business," Ferreira adds.
