Richard Wyn Griffith named Softcat MD as Colin Brown steps down

IT infrastructure products and services provider Softcat has announced that Richard Wyn Griffith will transition to the role of managing director, effective August 1st, 2020, replacing Colin Brown, who will be stepping down from the role at the end of July. 

Griffith joined Softcat in 2002, holding a number of roles, including opening and developing the London office in 2010, and, most recently, as director of solutions, services and marketing. 

Commenting on the appointment, Graeme Watt, CEO, said: “Colin has given and achieved so much in his time at Softcat. His decision to step down has not been an overnight one, and we have been planning this transition for some time since Colin initially signalled his intention.

“Whilst we will be very sad to see Colin leave, Richard has gained the skills and expertise across many areas of our business in the past 18 years and he is the ideal person to take on this role. I would like to thank Colin for all his work and congratulate Richard on his new role.” 

Brown will remain with the business until at least November to assist with the transition.
