Westcon-Comstor has appointed Tidiane Lo as the new Vice President for the Middle East and Africa region. Tidiane was already part of the company having held a managerial role for 11 years.
Immediately before this appointment, Tidiane was responsible for the Westcon business across Sub-Saharan African, covering 48 countries and the Collaboration, Security and Microsoft technology practices.
He joined Westcon in 2011 as a Regional Sales Manager looking after French West and Central Africa, based in Dakar-Senegal. Tidiane says that he joined Westcon because of its geographical footprint and this is what motivated to rise up the ranks fast at the company.
By 2015, he was in charge of the business process outsourcing (BPO) programme and SAP implementation for Africa, before becoming Sales Excellence Lead to drive operational excellence.
“I enjoy working here because of the company values, the structure and opportunities to grow and build a career plan. The workplace environment really allows staff to reach their potential as I believe there is always a room to do more and achieve more – the sky is the limit. Personally, coaching, training and strong leadership have made a real impact on my career here,” he says on his profile on the company’s website.
Before joining Westcon-Comstor, Tidiane had spent just a little over six years at Tech Data. He joined Tech Data as a country Manager in West Africa, a position he held for two years before being bumped up to become the Regional Sales Manager in West Africa & Indian Ocean for the rest of his tenure at the company.
Westcon is super excited to have Tidiane as the Vice President for the company’s Middle East and African regions. He has already proven himself at the company and its almost guaranteed that he will continue delivering even in his new role.
Congratulations Tidiane Lo.
