Drive Control Corporation (DCC), one of the largest distributors in the Southern African market, recently appointed Zandré Rudolph as its new Retail Business Unit Manager. Rudolph will be responsible for DCC’s retail focused business, providing its partners with quality products and dedicated resources for all retail needs and requirements.
Rudolph brings to the DCC team 12 years of distribution experience. He says: “I have always had a passion for the fast-paced world of technology. This is reflected in my addiction to all things technology related including gadgets. On a serious note, I have been privileged to be mentored by large industry players. For most part of my career I have been involved in distribution, providing me with an understanding of the workings of this environment and the challenges that we face. I am also excited and optimistic about the growth potential of the retail market.”
The retail market is unique in that consumers today are informed, they know what they want and they demand quality. My goal is to not only to grow DCC’s retail business, but also further cement the company as the preferred partner in the retail space. Through key relationships and a solid basket of products on offer, I’m looking to build strong, sustainable and mutually beneficial partnerships.”
Rudolph sees the retail market as the cornerstone of the distribution channel. “The digital divide between consumer and business is closing rapidly, and DCC is leading the way.”
DCC’s retail client base includes large retail stores as well as telecommunications service providers. Rudolph will focus on retail and vendor relationships within this segment. He will also play an integral role in managing the company image with the consumer market.
Adds Rudolph, “I am fortunate to work with a great team at DCC. Each one brings skills and experience to the table. They are a group of exceptional people, driven and passionate – important factors to our success.”
Rudolph concludes, “I believe success is the result of motivated, dedicated teamwork, quality products and value-added service. My team and I are very excited about the role retail will play in the future chapters of the DCC success story.”
