Today’s economy requires datacentres to keep up with the rapid rate of business change and innovation.

My vision is to build long lasting relationships between Rectron and its customers, by providing technical expertise to the channel through our datacentre product management and presales teams. I believe that this agreement with Lenovo DCG will help turn that vision into a reality, so that our clients can deliver world-class solutions and generate new revenue opportunities for themselves and their customers.” commented Michael Finch, Rectron’s Datacentre Business Unit Manager.
Finch brings 11 years of distribution experience with him to the project, with 8 of those years focussed on tier 1 Enterprise products and solutions.

I believe that this agreement with Lenovo DCG will help turn that vision into a reality, and will boost our ability to make complex solutions and technologies easily available to the market, so that our clients can deliver world-class solutions and generate new revenue opportunities for themselves and their customers.”
