Tech Data Mobile marketing director Henchoz to leave firm


Henchoz understood to be the latest senior departure from the hardware distributor in recent months 

Tech Data Mobile UK and Ireland marketing director Michelle Henchoz is set to leave the distributor, Mobile News understands.

Henchoz (pictured) joined the company in June from field marketing agency Reach Contact, where she was client development director with a focus on the consumer electronics market.

She had also spent two-and-a-half years at LG as European retail marketing manager form October 2008 and seven years as national account manager at Sony Ericsson from 2001.

Her departure is the latest at the company this year. UK and Ireland regional vice president Jim Michel left in April and was replaced byEuropean vice president Stephen Nolan.

Mobile News understands Michel has now been reappointed by Brightstar as UK and Ireland managing director after a previous spell at the company in 2011 heading up Brightstar Europe.

Accessories director Martijn Van Den Hout departed during the same month and joined Jabra as sales director for Western Europe in July. Sales director Dylan Price is understood to have left last month just six months into his current role.

Henchoz said: “I’m still here. I’m still working on the Mobile World Congress event in February 2014, and am looking forward to being there with Tech Data Mobile.”
