IT Europa strengthens its management team with appointment of two new directors

(London – 28th July 2005) IT Europa has announced the appointment of two new board members, Alan Norman as Managing Director and John Chapman as Business Development Director, to strengthen its management team and to lead it through an aggressive programme of growth.

Alan Norman has over 25 years experience in the IT market in senior international marketing roles with Fujitsu Siemens Computers and Siemens. In all these roles he was successful in building strong brands, launching new products, establishing strategic partnerships and driving rapid business growth.

"I am really excited at the opportunity to take IT Europa through its next growth phase," commented Alan. "We already have a reputation as a vital source of information on the IT channel across Europe and have a blue-chip client list of organisations who use our knowledge and information to strengthen their European marketing activity. The objective now is to build on that reputation by enhancing our current news and market intelligence products and use them as a platform for launching further services for the European IT community."

John Chapman has been in the IT industry for over 35 years and has been responsible for introducing many of today’s major vendors to the UK market. John has been Managing Director and held senior sales and marketing roles at vendors and distributors as well as running an SME IT Reseller business.

"IT Europa has a special position in the EMEA IT channel," claimed John. "Many major organisations rely on it for clear and powerful information on what is happening in the European channel and IT markets. It is an honour to be involved with IT Europa and we have great plans to expand operations and activities as well as improve on the excellent current offerings."

Chris Boeree, Chairman of IT Europa commented on the appointments, "Alan and John bring a wealth of knowledge and experience which will help IT Europa position itself as the primary source of channel and market knowledge for EMEA. We have very aggressive expansion plans for IT Europa and we needed to bring on board people who had the track record of achievement in the industry. These two appointments mean that our management team now has the strength in depth to deliver our plans and the flair to take IT Europa to a new level."
