Comztek has appointed Bridget Kelly as sales director: rest of Africa, lead the company’s growth and consolidation into the rest of Africa.
Kelly was previously the regional head for Avaya sub-Saharan Africa where she managed the team supporting sub-Saharan Africa, growing the Avaya market share significantly over her four-year tenure. She previously worked for the Business Connexion and Q Data Groups.
Paul Conradie, MD of Comztek, says the group’s investment in Africa is paying off for vendors like Cisco, Microsoft, HP, Symantec, Adobe and Fujitsu who are all experiencing sizable market share growth.
“This is partly due to the fact that markets, especially East Africa are becoming more mature thanks to developments like the Seacom cable. It’s also the fact that our distribution operation now has significant stability and resource in market to drive sales across our technology offerings.”
Kelly says, in relation to her new role: “The opportunity to drive the Comztek brand across these key Africa geographies and build the companies standing as a distributor and systems integrator is exciting. It is really important for all of us that Africa as a continent is successful. I would like to think that the Comztek Rest of Africa team can contribute in some small way to this goal.”
