Former Exertis general manager promoted to consumer commercial director
Distributor of technology products Exertis has promoted Caroline Hope to commercial director for consumer products, responsible for the consumer, Smart Tech and commodity networking business units.
She will report to Mike Buley, Exertis consumer, managing director.
Hope has worked at Exertis for the past seven years, initially as general manager responsible for the consumer division and, most recently, also setting up and managing the commodity network and Smart Tech areas. Prior to that she spent nearly five years at Tech Data in sales and business development roles and a further five years in account management roles with resellers.
Buley commented on the promotion, stating that Hope has consistently grown her business units at Exertis and has been an instrumental part of the team that has made the business an industry leader in the Smart Tech category.
“Caroline will undoubtedly bring a positive, collaborative and service-orientated approach to this role, as she has demonstrated in the past, by maintaining long-lasting and high value relationships with her vendors, customers and colleagues,” he added.
“It’s a challenging time in retail but we have opportunities to exploit, particularly in helping our customers to take advantage of the connected home and enabling them to use our specialist retail services to enhance their business,” said Hope.
