Accessories director rumoured to have left Tech Data Mobile


Sources say Martijn Van Den Hout has departed, becoming the latest high-profile departure from the hardware distributor

Tech Data Mobile director of accessories Martijn Van Den Hout has left the business, Mobile News understands. He is the latest executive to depart the hardware distributor.

Van Den Hout held the role for just under two years, having joined the company in August 2011 and prior to that, was European business development manager at Brightstar for just under a year.

Parent company Computer 2000 declined to comment.

Last week sources close to the distributor revealed that European vice president Stephen Nolan has replaced Jim Michel as Tech Data Mobile’s UK and Ireland regional vice president. Michel is remaining at the distributor for the next couple of months as a consultant to Nolan.

Steve Fraser, who had been Tech Data Mobile sales director for two-and-a-half years, left in February to head up the retail solutions division of dealer A1 Comms.
