Data Select has appointed Richard Abel as technical product manager of its new managed services division.
He joins from Vodafone, where he was a technical manager.
Abel, who joined last month, has been tasked with implementing device management applications and mobile e-mail services.
The appointment of further support staff is expected to follow.
The managed services division at Data Select was established earlier this year to strengthen the distributor’s existing handset configuration and provisioning service and attract customers outside mobile.
