Exertis Micro-P marketing head Patrick to join Tech Data Mobile


Jennifer Patrick returning to the Tech Data Group of companies to replace Michelle Henchoz next month 

Exertis Micro-P senior marketing manager Jennifer Patrick is leaving the company in January to join Tech Data Mobile as marketing director.

She will replace Tech Data Mobile marketing director Michelle Henchoz, who is stepping down from the role at the start of the year.

The IT and mobile distributor said Patrick’s departure on January 31 will result in a “review” of the marketing department. It is understood she will be working four days a week.

It marks a return to the Tech Data group of companies for Patrick. She held senior marketing roles at Computer 2000 for five-and-a-half years from November 2004 to May 2010, before becoming Brightstar Europe’s marketing manager for nine months.

She was also partner marketing manager for Microsoft before joining Exertis Micro-P in February 2012.

Tech Data Mobile UK and Ireland managing director Stephen Nolan said: “Jeni brings enormous depth and experience and was originally at Tech Data, so it’s a bit of a ‘coming home’ story for her.”
