Exertis acquires MTR Group
2017-10-06

United Kingdom: broadliner Exertis has acquired MTR Group, a service and solutions provider specialising in 2nd generation lifecycle extension of mobile, wearable and tablet devices. MTR employs 60 staff at its bespoke high-tech refurbishment facility in Harlow, Essex. It generated sales of €13.22 million for the twelve months ended 30 November 2016 and has seen significant and sustained year on year growth since its incorporation in 2011 by founders and co-owners Steve Healy and Andy Payne. The strong relationship that MTR has with Samsung will enable Exertis to deepen its business entanglement with this key strategic brand as well as providing the opportunity to leverage MTR’s refurbishment and reverse logistics capabilities, and jointly expand these services to a wider range of potential partners.

Gerry O'Keeffe, Exertis UK & Ireland managing director, said: "MTR has enjoyed considerable success in providing refurbishment capabilities in the mobile and tablet device market. The recent impressive growth in revenue and profitability is a testament to the reputation that it has earned in the channel, borne out of years of refurbishment experience, a sophisticated IT infrastructure and also continued investment in its impressive high-tech and scalable refurbishment facility. We are very excited to add this success story to the Exertis family and are looking forward to continued growth and providing further added value for our suppliers and customers."

Steve Healy, MTR, managing director, said: "as Exertis and MTR's core values are so well aligned, this acquisition made complete sense. The benefits and opportunities of this exciting new chapter will extend to our existing and new customers and vendors alike, further enhancing the range of services and products offered. By leveraging the complementary strengths of both companies, we can only add to what is already an exciting proposition for the relationships currently held. We look forward to working with the Exertis management teams and building on the success of both companies."

Andy Payne, MTR sales director, added: "we're extremely excited about the journey and opportunities that lie ahead. MTR has already established itself as a market leader with its refurbishment and supply capabilities along with reverse and life cycle management solutions. Coupled with Exertis' OEM and Network relationships, this acquisition will make for a formidable force within the mobile/recycling sector."

Exertis adds heads to its Epson LFP business
2017-08-10

United Kingdom: broadliner Exertis has added new employees to its specialist print division based in Norfolk to take advantage of the growth in their large format business. According to analysts Technavio, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2% by 2022 estimated to be worth $8.42 billion globally (MarketsandMarkets) as the adoption of this technology grows across multiple industries.

Matthew Jeffrey joins as LFP business manager having previously ran his own business and brings all-round business development and key account management experience in both a retail and technical environment. He will own the commercial responsibilities of the Epson LFP business including vendor and customer engagement.

Rebecca Lawrence has been appointed as Epson LFP account manager taking ownership of the day to day management of key customers focused in this area. She has a proven track record in sales and customer service and will strengthen the specialist sales print team.

Jamie Brothwell, Exertis print general manager, said: "we are delighted to welcome Matthew and Rebecca to our print team which continues to outgrow the market, establishing Exertis as the go-to-distributor for print and document management. Their appointments reflect our commitment to add investment in specialist areas where we see opportunities to support our vendors and customers. Our dedicated print team in Norfolk is testament to that and has been instrumental in driving the success of our print, LFP and OA business, catering for the different demands of the retail, B2B and OA markets."

Distribution of the Epson Large Format printers transitioned to Exertis' print centre of Excellence in Norfolk in March 2017.

Exertis appoints Business Intelligence Manager
2017-07-31

United Kingdom: broadliner Exertis has appointed Jonathan Wagstaff to the newly created position of Business Intelligence Manager. Based in Basingstoke with a European remit, his role will help to identify trends in the technology market, including new technologies, significant new market players (vendors, customers, operators, and others) and the impact of these new technologies on the distribution space. He will report to Stephen Casey, Finance & Development Director at DCC Technology.

"I am delighted to welcome Jonathan to Exertis. Exertis has undergone a successful period of growth with several key acquisitions across the Group. Whilst we have a very strong technology proposition, it's important we continue to identify and translate market opportunities into actions that can benefit our business, and also the business of our vendor partners and reseller customers both in existing and new territories. Jonathan's experience in data analytics and how the channel operates is ideally suited to fulfilling the task of providing business intelligence that can enable us to take the right decisions to meet our Group objectives", said Casey.

Wagstaff joins from Context, a leading European data analyst company that tracks sales and pricing information from within the IT channel, where he managed EMEA wide data collection projects for major ICT vendors and had responsibility for the UK and IE distribution, reseller and retail panels. He was also instrumental in setting up Context's VR Research Group and PC Gaming category tracking. Wagstaff said: "having worked at Context, I appreciate the importance of interpreting data and identifying trends, and the value that business analytics can bring to companies when making critical decisions. Data is often called the new oil; as distribution rapidly evolves and margins feel pressure its importance has shifted. Exertis is one of the largest and most successful technology distributors in Europe and their ambition to grow profitably, whilst looking for new market opportunities based on sound business intelligence, was a challenge that appealed to me."

With degrees from Oxford and Johns Hopkins Universities, Wagstaff has been a regular contributor to IT trade titles on research matters and has spoken at many industry events including the Plug In To Exertis channel event in May. He has specialist knowledge of the UK ICT supply chain and the global VR, Smart Home, and PC Gaming markets.
