Tech Data announces two new changes to its UK board team

An existing member of Tech Data’s UK board, Matt Child, has been appointed with immediate effect to the position of advanced solutions managing director of UK and Ireland.

Following Child’s move within the company, James Reed has been promoted to managing director of endpoint solutions, with immediate effect, he also joins the Tech Data UK board.

Child has been with Tech Data for just under four years, holding a number of senior positions. As MD of the endpoint solutions business, he has led the introduction of market-leading initiatives such as Tech Data’s Tech-as-Service proposition, which is now a standard offering across Tech Data Europe. Prior to Tech Data, Child has occupied board roles for almost 20 years at various tech companies and was also CEO of Leeds United Football Club (you can read more about that in our recent interview with Child here).

James Reed is well placed to take on Child’s previous position at Tech Data and has been with the company for over 18 years. He has enjoyed significant achievements in many roles within the firm and is an accomplished leader with a deep understanding of how Tech Data’s business works end-to-end.

Commenting on Child and Reed’s appointments, David Watts, managing director, Tech Data UK and Ireland, said: “We know that through his experience and abilities, Matt will make a superb contribution to the Advanced Solutions team as well as to our impact on the market. James has proved that he is equally well positioned and qualified to take on the role of managing director, endpoint solutions. We’re very excited about these appointments, knowing that they both bode very well for Matt and James’ future, as well as Tech Data’s.”
