Stephen Nolan takes over from Jim Michel at Tech Data Mobile


Distributor’s European vice president replaces UK and Ireland regional VP, with Michel acting as a consultant for him for the next few months

Tech Data Mobile Europe vice president Stephen Nolan has taken over from Jim Michel as the distributor’s UK and Ireland regional vice president.

Mobile News understands Nolan (pictured) took over the role yesterday. Michel is leaving Tech Data Mobile for personal reasons, but will remain with the company for the next few months as a consultant to Nolan.

Michel does not have another job lined up for when he leaves the distributor, according to sources.

Tech Data Mobile’s parent company, Computer 2000, declined to comment.

Nolan spent almost 14 years at Motorola Mobility before joining Tech Data Mobile in February. In that time he was marketing and managing director of its South African business and held several general manager positions within its European operations.

Michel joined the distributor in October having spent two-and-a-half years at LG, in which time he became the head of its UK and Ireland division. Prior to joining LG, Michel had been Motorola’s UK and Ireland general manager.
