Distology reveals company has received investment from private equity firm NorthEdge to help drive aggressive growth plans.
Distology appoints Thomas Kramps as regional director in the Benelux
14 June, 2021 – Whilst we are headquartered in Manchester, many of you will be aware that we also have a fast-growing business within the Benelux giving us access to the European market through our office in the Netherlands.
In March, we received private equity investment from mid-market private equity firm NorthEdge to assist with our growth plans. The growth strategy in the Benelux is a part of this and allows us to offer even more added value to the local market.
Distology has the aim to triple the team in the Benelux within one year and wants to become the largest security distributor in the Benelux. To fuel these plans, Distology has hired Thomas Kramps as Regional Director Benelux and brings with him approximately 30 years of experience in the IT sector in the field of sales.
Before joining Distology, Kramps worked as a regional director at the German security company Link11. He also held various management positions at international IT companies such as: Cybersprint, Netskope and Infoblox. Thomas Kramps combines his professional expertise and skills with a strong motivation to contribute to the turnover and growth of Distology.
In addition, Distology will also scale up its services in the Benelux to better support the sales, marketing and technical teams of its partners (vendors and resellers).
“The role of security distributor has changed a lot in recent years. Where previously it was mainly about attractive discounts for resellers and fast delivery times, we are increasingly being asked to act as an expert and trusted advisor for our partners,” says Thomas Kramps, Regional Director Benelux.
“Distology has the ambition to become Europe’s leading distributor of SaaS security solutions. I believe we can achieve this, as there is a strong demand in Cloud security. Moreover, we have invaluable knowledge and a team that always goes the extra mile. I am therefore very much looking forward to continuing to grow in the Benelux together with the Distology team.”
